The palm trees and bougainvillea form a very welcoming entrance to the beautiful 125-acre farm setup on the outskirts of Ahmedabad. It is a wonderful sight to see women using a spade to work which most of the country sees as a man's job. The diversity and health of the crops (various annuals and a few perennials) speaks volumes about the knowledge and skills of Dr Dinesh Patel. A mix of organic and bio-dynamic farming principles have created a soil healthy enough to produce all kinds of fruits, vegetables, spices, pulses cereals, etc.
It is one of the most beautiful integrated farms of the country. An integrated farm is incomplete without some animals and there were plentiful. Besides the cows, it is mesmerizing to see how peacocks call it their home. One can see monkeys enjoying themselves as if this was their playground. Dr Patel also runs a nursery where he has a variety of cactus and palm tree saplings besides 12 varieties of bougainvillea. They use the modified atmosphere packaging methods that uses inert gases like nitrogen thereby increasing the shelf life of the products significantly.
As Gandhiji had said - Love is the strongest force the world possesses. It is the love that has helped Dr Patel create this paradise that his family has been calling home since 2005.
