We humans, – living in a city or village – every morning depend on our farmers.
Everyday farmers work very hard for our daily food. Yet, they are the least respected and underpaid in the world.
A whole generation of young Balinese is turning away from farming because it is possible to earn higher wages in the tourism and hospitality industry.
Together with you as our guests we can try to help the farmers to get a better education and entrance to networks to earn a better income.
The environment in Indonesia can stay beautiful and sustainable, just by being “traditional organic” and paying a better price for the organic farmers produce.
The Organic Farm Bali is just producing “western” organics, like Italian basil, coriander, lettuce, fennel, rhubarb etc. for our Café and Day Trips.
All local produce like spinach, lemon basil, lemon grass, cinnamon, coffee, beans, carrots, cassava, red rice etc we source from the village farmers. Which are all traditionally grown “organic” because the farmers lacked the financials to buy chemical fertilizers and pesticide.
Our small western organics farm is “like a school” for local farmers to learn about western organic products. It’s our aim to help increase the villager’s income in the near future by supplying western & local organic produce to hotels, villas and restaurants.
From the Farmers we learned the very important lesson: That growing Organics isn’t about rules and regulations. Rather, it’s about living in trust with nature and respecting all life on the planet!
