This is my first post. I am new to this forum. I see lots of community support. Thank you all and appreciate your valuable help to the community.
I am planning to start a farm for regular income. I have a land of approx 6 acres. I have free electricity with one dried well. The well do not have any water. If I drill I may get water. The land has red soil.
There was a community bore well in my land( part of some Swiss project) for people in my area, government drilled a bore well and manual pump.We get water regularly.

My childhood I was working in pady field. we had couple of cows at home. We had approximately 20 chickens (mainly for egg). So i grew up in a farming environment. My father was a govt teacher. So main source of income was his salary.
Now I am working in IT field. reaching nearly 50. My plan is going back and start farming and have some income from farm.
Initially thought Banana, Murunga and pomegranate. But due to wind I was not sure this is practical.
Mix of Egg farm and goat farm. corn, grass & azolla for feed.
Saw the following suitable for egg farm
Improved breeds of Desi bird
For meat purpose
For Egg laying
Giriraja: Improved variety of Desi bird in term of body weight & egg production (three times)
Any experts there for egg farm suggestion. Is this same as Nattu Koli? (country chicken) as country chicken egg fetches better price in local market.
Integrated organic farming
- Not sure I can get organic certification. Past 10 years this land is empty. Near by yearly once some time farmers cultivate pady. So if anyone is doing farming adjacent can I still go for organic farming.
Entire 6 acres of land cows for organic fertilizer, grass & azolla for cows, mix of fruits, vegetables(shaded net using baboo) and flowers.
Looking forward for your guidance and inputs.
