The post-pandemic times have opened our eyes to the unhealthy ways in which many of us professional people were living. The hectic modern lifestyle has bought with itself numerous ill effects, including increasing stress, hypertension, all kinds of lifestyle diseases, and decreasing free time. The pandemic has also alarmed us with the ultimatum that from this point onward, we have two choices. Either go downward toward our horrific doom or go upward by adopting a holistically sustainable, natural, organic, and healthiest lifestyle.
As life is ours, so is the choice. And being daughters and sisters of Farmers & Sons, we chose to go fully organic, and our journey began two years before the pandemic struck.

Who We Individually Are
Sheetal Negi – Sheetal’s Journey from Aviation to Agriculture is an inspiration to many. Born and raised in the beautiful Sangla valley of Himachal Pradesh, Sheetal was privileged to access fresh and natural food from her ancestral farms. During her Aviation career of flying around the world for 15 years and having irregular working hours, she realized the true value of eating healthy. Her childhood, mostly spent on farms, inspired her to make a genuine effort to spread the health culture by providing food products free from harmful pesticides.
Rupali Pachundkar – Rupali comes from a prominent family of farmers from Ranjangav near Pune. Always active in her social life, she is keen to make a difference in the lives of small farmers and villagers. She firmly believes that organic farming practices are the way forward for farmers and consumers. Thus, she actively educates small farmers to follow Organic farm practices.
Sharing their inspiration behind venturing as an organic products provider, Sheetal and Rupali reveal that they belong to Farmer families.
Our most cherished memories come from farms. During our corporate lives, we witnessed the stressful work culture and deteriorating health levels of people. Some of us had experienced in our offices that colleagues in their 30s had medical conditions we had never heard of. We wanted to do something about it. Either we accept the current lifestyle of people, feel pity for them, and slowly become a part of that culture, or we can try to change ourselves and the people around us.
Our families have been farmers for generations, and we cherish our childhood memories on the farms where we always ate fresh and chemical-free food, played with friends and farm animals, and breathed much fresh air.
We know how to contribute to society; we believe that a business that makes people happy and healthy is good.
The idea was shared with like-minded farmers who happily came on board, which is how the journey began.

At the initial stage, our major challenges were convincing farmers and consumers to shift towards organic farming as there was a lack of awareness among farmers and Customers about organic farming and its benefits.
Pricing and Marketing were other big challenges. Obtaining compatible pricing for the produce during the initial stage led us to losses.
Being experienced leaders, let us share our opinions on how technology is transforming the organic sector and what advancements can we expect in the future.
The Organic farming sector in India is getting organized faster than expected. From the Government of India to small scale, farmers are stepping up to meet the increasing demand for organic produce.
The government has initiated several schemes like Paramparagat Krishi Vikas Yojana, Mission Organic, and Capital Investment Subsidy Scheme to attract more farmers towards organic farming.
There has been much research happening in this sector. Our experience in recent studies shows a significant growth in the organic industry, which is motivational.
With all this, the organic sector in India will be at the centre of attention in the coming years.
We are the Future’s Food Culture
Our advice to aspirants willing to venture into the organic industry is simple. Like any other sector, this also demands a lot of hard work and patience. It is not the field for those who want to sit back, relax, and enjoy. Society is going through a food culture change. It is exciting to be a part of this change. However, it will also demand that you be focused, innovative and patient.
Our vision of scaling Farmers & Sons’ scope and offerings in future is grand. We are already very proud that we connected with 1000+ organic farmers, and our customer base is increasing every day. Our concentration in future is also growing to be ready-to-eat health products as there is a huge market awaiting genuine products.
On the corporate social responsibility front, one of the huge initiatives we undertook last year was contributing to the orphan children of farmers who committed suicide. It has been recognised by our customers and several institutes.
