Uncle, our mentor

To start an organic farm, a person - with no prior experience in commercial farming- would need, apart from a land with water resource and investment money, the right mentor.

With the knowledge, experience, professional network and a willingness to help new farmers - Uncle is a perfect mentor. He encouraged us to setup the farm as well as guided us throughout the process. (by Uncle - as stated in previous posts, I refer to my wife's maternal uncle)

I traveled with Uncle to several places and met with researchers and farmers in pursuit of learning about organic vegetable farming from their scientific and farming experience.

Every place we visited and every person we met, I gained valuable information that is otherwise not possible. So we have to be thankful to Uncle for his mentorship.

My main purpose of this blog is to document my learning ad experience so that others like us can benefit a bit from this.
