life at Nannilam
The meadows of Nannilam provide good pasture. Our healthy and happy
cows provide good manure for our fields.
At our dairy farm, we strive to create
a sustainable and ethical system
that benefits both our cows and the environment. We believe in treating our cows with kindness and respect, providing them with open pastures to graze freely, and caring for their emotional and physical well-being with special herbs and practices.
Our cows are an integral part of our farm ecosystem, and we recognize the importance of their manure as a valuable resource. We use cow dung in various ways, including as a plaster for our walls, as a natural fertilizer for our fields, and as a key ingredient in panchgavya products. Panchgavya is a natural product made from cow dung, urine, milk, curd, and ghee, which is believed to have a range of health benefits for both humans and plants.
Additionally, we make use of cow urine in the form of jeevamrut, a natural fertilizer that helps to promote healthy soil and crop growth. We also use cow dung to produce biogas, which we use to power our farm cafe and other facilities on the farm.
At our farm, we recognize the interdependence of our cows and the environment, and we work to create a sustainable and ethical system that benefits both. Our cows are not just livestock to us, but valued members of our community, and we strive to care for them in a way that supports their physical and emotional well-being.
Through our farming practices, we aim to contribute to a more sustainable and just food system that prioritizes the health of people and the planet. We are committed to continuing to explore innovative ways to use the resources provided by our cows to promote environmental sustainability and animal welfare.
