Your cow – Our Farm
Why buy milk when you can get it from your own cow? Get a cow and leave it on our farm and collect milk at your doorstep 365 days for free. Your cow – Our farm is a unique platform for people of Chennai to get pure and unadulterated milk from their own cow delivered to their home free of cost.
Why should I own a cow when I can simply buy a litre of milk from the store next door you might ask? Our answer is in two parts. One – we, our children and our elders consume milk and other dairy products every day and therefore it is most imperative that we find out how safe it is to consume the milk that we procure. Perhaps, a couple of news article in the Economic Times and The Hindu respectively will throw some light on the quality of milk that we consume.
Two – there can be no denial that the safest milk in the world is the one that is obtained from your own cow.
How does Your cow – Our farm work? It is quite simple, you own a cow, take an insurance policy for it in your name and leave your cow on our farm. We will take care of your cow and deliver 365 Litres of milk to your house every year as long as your cow is under our care.

One female calf will go to you once every three years. Other calves will go to the farm. A female calf to you to ensure that you have a replacement for your cow when your cow becomes old.
A cow’s price is determined largely by its age, breed and milk yielding capacity. A reasonably good and productive cow will cost you anywhere between Rupees 45,000/- to 60,000/-.

We expect your cow to yield between 2000 to 2500 Litres of milk per lactation cycle for this proposition to be viable.
