About Our Farms
Ishka Renewable Farms Private Limited (IRFPL) is a new generation company established in 2012 with a vision to tap into the sunrise sectors in India, namely – Agriculture and Food Business combined with energy sufficiency from clean, green and renewable sources for captive use.
Ishka Farms in Tamil Nadu is spread over 365 acres of agricultural land in Niravi Pudhupatti Village, Ettayapuram Taluk, Tuticorin District. This is just 95 KM from Madurai and 45 KM from the Tuticorin Port. South Tamil Nadu is known for its arid, barren and dry, inhospitable terrain. The average rainfall in this region is below 600 mm while the mercury touches an easy 45 degrees Celsius during summer!
Our endeavour is to build an enterprise that provides preserved organic spices while remaining environmentally sensitive in all aspects of its working. Hence, we were delighted when our efforts at choosing a crop whose water requirements were sparse bore fruit. Conservation of groundwater is a closely followed mantra; Capers and Moringa fit in perfectly with our desire to not only save water but also to reduce the use of fossil fuels and conventional sources of electricity. We looked at “modern” crops that could not only change the geographical landscape but also the socio-economic climate in the region. By using modern agricultural practices of crop management in harmony with traditional knowledge of pest control and fertigation, we have been able to provide year-round employment and demonstrate the viability of options other than traditional seasonal crops purely dependent on rainfall.
With assistance from professionals in soil management and irrigation, we have been able to set up a world-class farm. Our in-house, on-site facility for all post-harvest activities – cleaning, drying, preserving and packing, ensures that the goodness of the product is not lost in transport and process time and hence, guaranteed to bring you organic farm-fresh products.
