Herbivore Farms is Mumbai's first hyperlocal farm located in Andheri. They commit to delivering reasonably priced fresh produce (straight out of the city) to your doorstep within a few hours of harvest. It is the brainchild of two very talented youngsters Sakina Rajkotwala and Joshua Lewis, who quit their full-time, high-paying jobs to work towards changing the idea of 'fresh' in the minds (and tummies) of people in Mumbai. Have you ever thought about the nutrition you’re gaining from your “fresh” veggies, even if they’re from the prettiest aisles in your local supermarket? A lot of people would be stunned to know that 2 out of the 3 meals you eat everyday have less than half of the nutrition it promises! Most produce, by the time it is delivered to us, loses a major chunk of its nutrition and hence is not actually 'fresh'. Herbivore Farms, inspired by the practices and culture at Solitude Farms in Auroville (where they eat only what they grow), use hydroponic (even we had to look up the meaning!) techniques to grow healthy and leafy green in an extremely controlled indoor environment. Special care and attention are given to every green that is grown here. What we loved about them was the fact that they don't use any pesticides or insecticides to aid the growth. Even though they grow only lettuce and basil (different variants), they make sure that the nutrition value is intact by delivering only a few hours after harvest: you’re eating straight out of the farm! Besides being beneficial to us and our bodies, it is also very beneficial to our environment as this technique of farming uses much lesser water as compared to the traditional methods, and more growth is ensured in the same amount of space by vertical farming. Health is also interesting, right? You can sign up for their Herbivore Harvest Box for INR 1,500 and INR 200 extra for deliveries in South Bombay (delivered once a week). This box will have 200-350gms of fresh produce with 6 types of lettuce and basil each. Along with this, they will also pack in some surprise herbs and microgreens from their fresh trials. Our mouths are already watering!
