Organization of Small and Marginal Farmers (OSMF) for organic farming

(Organic farming, processing & marketing of Organic food ingredients).

For the uplift of the small & marginal farmers we initiated such a project, which will have a major positive impact in the efforts to protect this planet from total destruction due to environmental degradation.And our commitment in health sector has also prompted us to go ahead with such a project. Also this will protect the small farmers from the tactics of traders and middle men.

Now there is about 250Ha of land as Certified Organic, with 293 Farmers, that produces a variety of high value spices like Nutmeg, Mace, Pepper, Ginger, Turmeric, Clove, Vanilla etc.. The produce of such small Organic farmers are been pooled in by Jeevagram and after minimum processing it is exported to various countries.We consider this project as one of our prominent projects because of the multitude of benefits to various stake holders of the Society.
