Paalaar Organic Foods

Fundamental truths about natural farming.

Our health is primarily determined by the food we eat and the air we breathe. It is a given that Natural farming is safe for the environment, and organic food is safe and healthy for the family. With that in mind, we at Paalaar Urban Farms ventured into natural farming, and our experience has taught us that: –

  1. Farming is tough and organic farming is tougher and also prohibitively expensive.
  2. There can be no organic food without biodiversity on a farm. Cows, goats, and poultry on the farm premises are absolutely essential to implement natural farming practices on a farm.
  3. Organic farming hates greed – Never force the plants/crops to deliver more than their natural potential.
  4. Organic farming abhors impatience – Never try to reduce the time between sowing and harvesting.

After buying a plot of land for a farmhouse, our customers get to own livestock like cows, buffaloes, goats, hens, ducks, turkeys, geese, guinea fowls, etc. These pets are being maintained and managed by Paalaar Urban Farms, bringing biodiversity to our farms. These animals produce milk and eggs for their owners and manure for the farms. The availability of high-grade farmyard manure facilitates natural farming most effectively and helps us avoid reliance on chemical-based fertilizers and pesticides.

The primary aim of Paalaar Urban Farms is to produce organic food for the farm owner’s self-consumption, and the surplus output is made available to others. As we produce primarily for the farm-owners, all our farming operations, food production, and packaging processes are transparent and open to scrutiny by the farm-owners. This, in turn, ensures that there are no compromises when it comes to organic farming practices at Paalaar Urban Farms.

If you wish to eat the safest and healthiest food produced by rigidly following organic farming practices, please contact +91 8939773300 and register with us. We will deliver your requirements straight from our farm to your doorstep.

A bit about milk from our farm.

Many of our customers ask us why there is such a big difference between native and mixed-breed cow’s milk prices. The answer is simple. Though both breeds require roughly the same amount of money for feeding, maintenance, and veterinary care, the milk yield of a native breed cow is just about 50% of a mixed breed cow’s yield. Therefore, it is needless to add that the price too will vary by the same ratio.

On our farm, our focus was on native breed cows. Therefore, we opted for the Kankrej breed since it was an ideal milch breed most suited to Chennai/Tamilnadu’s climatic conditions. However, we couldn’t offer Kankrej breed cow’s milk for less than Rs 100/- per Litre due to the low milk yielding capacity of native breed cows. We continue to supply native breed cow’s milk to our customers who can afford them at Rs 100/- per Litre.

Some of our customers find the Kankrej cow milk unaffordable and want us to offer them the next best alternative. We have therefore added native-breed cow’s milk to our product list at a more affordable price of Rs 60/- per Litre.

Don’t worry if you are someone who prefers thick and creamy buffalo’s milk. We have that too at Rs 75/- per Litre.

Coming to the process:

  • We store and package the native breed cow milk, the crossbreed cow milk, and the buffalo milk separately.
  • To eliminate harmful and undesirable bacteria from the milk, we heat it to just 63.5 degrees and then chill it to 6 degrees. Paalaar Urban Farms is probably your only choice if you prefer milk that is pure, unprocessed, and brought directly from the farm to your doorstep.
  • If you are interested in owning a cow without owning a farm, please feel free to get one under the “Your cow – Our farm” arrangement.
  • Remember, we eventually have to pay for our health and environment – either today or at a future date. In other words, either pay to a farmer or to a hospital. The choice is ours to make.
