How we Do it


OUR FARM PRODUCTION

 

Organic Kashmir® uses sustainable growing practices. All crops are grown in safe, clean and environmentally friendly conditions. Our “earth friendly” growing practices ensure long term sustainability, efficient utilization of resources and respect for local bio diversity.

Our quality control begins with premium and Non-GMO seeds, nurtured and grown at our own facilities, ensuring complete control and consistency of quality from seed to fruit. Many of the input seeds for production are also grown by us as part of the company’s collection of heirlooms and open-pollinated varieties, which allows us to offer a wide range and varieties of fresh produce.

We have a matured Integrated Pest & Disease Management where nature’s beneficial insects, bio-derived neem oil and garlic along with pheromone insects traps are used effectively to manage the agriculture pests. Combination of horse, cow and poultry compost manure with beneficial microbes helps us to maintain soil’s micro-environment and fertility, at the same time nurture the mother earth for future generations.

All of our production is 100% drip-irrigation which allows us to reduce water consumption by 70% over conventional agriculture. Drip watering reduces water use by eliminating waste because it applies water directly to plant root zones; losses to wind and evaporation are dramatically reduced.

Organic farmers, ranchers, and food processors follow a defined set of standards to produce organic food and fiber. Congress described general organic principles in the Organic Foods Production Act, and the USDA defines specific organic standards. These standards cover the product from farm to table, including soil and water quality, pest control, livestock practices, and rules for food additives.

Organic farms and processors:

  • Preserve natural resources and biodiversity
  • Support animal health and welfare
  • Provide access to the outdoors so that animals can exercise their natural behaviors
  • Only use approved materials
  • Do not use genetically modified ingredients
  • Receive annual onsite inspections

 

 

Food Safety

 

Consumption of Organic Kashmir® produce is a great way to eliminate your exposure to pesticides and harmful heavy metals commonly found in fresh produce that have been grown using conventional agricultural practices.

We do not use any pesticides and harmful toxins for plant protection. We have a matured Integrated Pest & Disease Management where nature’s beneficial insects, bio-derived neem oil and garlic along with pheromone insects traps are used effectively to manage the agriculture pests.

Organic Kashmir® has adopted USDA standard for all its farm production.

USDA standards have had an enormous impact on the thinking of food producers and processors as well as on the awareness of the end users – the consumers. Its influence extends to every continent, and its contribution to the protection of public health and fair practices in the food trade is immeasurable. Its creation, moreover, has generated food-related scientific research and greatly increased the world community's awareness of the vital issues at stake – food quality, safety and public health.

We follow USDA ORGANIC standards rigorously to ensure that consumers are not exposed to unsafe levels of hazardous and toxic materials. Every batch of Organic Kashmir® produce is tested and certified by reputed Food Safety Test laboratories to ensure on-going compliance to USDA standards.

 

 

Our Philosophy

 

We adhere to the principles of the slow food movement and believe that foods should be produced carefully and savored. But, above all, we believe that nature’s purest foods are also the healthiest and most flavorful. That’s why we produce our products artisanally and organically as nature wants us to be.
