In the second half of 2017, I fulfilled my dream of owning a farm land in a village about 60 kms from Bangalore city. With good rains during the monsoon season that year, the land was lush green with vegetation.

My goal is to practice organic farming in this field raising crops and fruit trees of all kinds. My plans are to also experiment with new farming techniques and technology (drones?) and eventually work towards a dream of mine - provide a model for food security and sustainable farm economy for small holding farmers.

This is going to be a major undertaking and logistical challenge given that I can only visit the farm infrequently. Even more challenging is the fact that the land and the surrounding village is usually prone to droughts and lies mostly barren except for a few hardy crops that are grown by the locals.

Good luck to me and my dreams!!
