I have been lurking around here for some time and am really fascinated by what guys like Curtis Stone and Jean Martin Fortier have been doing with small farms growing high yields with bio-intensive, high rotation techniques yet without the use of chemicals. In their economies they have been able to showcase a good livelihood with this kind of farming; mostly vegetables for CSAs, farmers markets and restaurants etc.
Is there any such example in India? Whatever I have found on this forum are mostly farms with more focus on annual fruits/plantation with low focus on vegetables. One example I can imagine following similar techniques is FirstAgro but don’t know for real.
Has anybody done economics of such model? It seems to me that it should work considering it is low input (infra, labour, no till), high yielding (due to efficient crop planning, high rotation, bio-intensive etc.). Any idea or brainstorming possibility?
