I am new to this forum and I am much impressed by the comments and updates provided on the farming and other tips.
About Me: I am a software employee who is interested in farming. I am planning to shift into farming as a full time within a couple of years. We would like to contribute back to mother nature in form of agriculture
Plan and aim: My friends and myself have bought a land around 3 acres on foot hills of kodaikanal, which is at an altitude of 1000 feet. Our plan to is to create a small fruit and spice farm. The aim is to create full fledged farm which will help to reap profit from second year onward as we are strongly made up our mind to shift to agriculture.
Plantation: We made an initial analysis and found that the fruit bearing trees and spices would be a good option. I have planned for nutmeg, pepper, durian, rambutan etc. In addition, We are planning for vegetables so we can get some amount initially to pay the workers.
Workers: We are planning to have around 3 to 4 persons for helping in cultivation and managing the lands dedicately.
Friends, need your valuable suggestions on which fruit bearing and spices will be more beneficial and where can we get those. As we are stepping into new area. We need your support and expertise to make it a great success.
