Overview

Shodhan is self-sufficient farm created using Zero Budget Natural Farming that employs state-of-the-art, eco-friendly methods of cultivation. The huge stretch of fertile land produces a variety of herbs, fruits, vegetables and spices. The farm is a complete realm by itself: A herd of cows, a horde of rabbits and guinea pigs, geese, sheep,chicken, goats and a couple of watchful dogs. Shodhan is where you can get back to the roots, learn about farming practices, and even try your hand at farming, And we take our responsibility towards nature very seriously:

No tree has been cut while selecting a place to build the Farmstay. Plants are being cultivated that will eventually add to the green layer of the earth. The water used for cooking and drinking comes from the pond, where water gathers from the stream that originates in the surrounding hills. Locally sourced material has been used to build all cottages.

Villagers from surrounding area of the property come to serve guests, by taking out some time from their day to day bread earning activities. Shodhan helps them add to their income. Vegetables used for cooking are grown in their fields, thus contributes to village economy. Biogas plant has been implemented and mud stove is used to cook food. Water stream which flows through the farm is kept clean and conserved every year which increases water level of wells in the surrounding area, directly benefitting villagers. Rain water harvesting is practiced to regenerate groundwater reserves. Use of plastic is minimal.
