Krushikanya Sendriya Shetkari Bachat Gat is an unique group of farmers where all members are women. These women have shown tremendous entrepreneurial spirit which is an inspiration for all of us.
About 4 years back a Bachat Gat or Self Help Group was formed to support an Agri processing unit in Shirur Taluka of Pune district. But because of one or other reason the processing unit couldn't start. But these ladies kept looking for other options and when Department of Agriculture came to Shikrapur to form an organic farmers' group, these women volunteered and Krushikanya Sendriya Shetkari Bachat Gat was formed.
The group has been engaged in organic farming since 2015 and is certified under PGS scheme of Govt of India. All the farming and post processing activities are managed by an all women team. They are now getting into value addition processes and planning to launch a new range of organic products.
