The farm always keeps improving its integrated farming approach to produce the best quality fresh, local and organic indigenous Gir cow’s dairy products and deliver them directly to environment-conscious consumers.
About the founders:
Deepak Bhanushali: Born in a farmer family in Kutch – Gujarat, Deepak completed his studies up to HSC from Somaiya College - Mumbai. To follow his passion for agriculture, he studied B.Sc. Agriculture at Navsari Agriculture University- Gujarat, followed by MBA (Agribusiness) from Pantnagar University, Uttarakhand.
After a short stint in a corporate job, Deepak decided to chase his passion and started Kesariya farm at his ancestral farm along with his brother Suresh. Combining the traditional philosophies of natural cow grazing and scientific Gir cow care, Kesariya farm works exclusively to produce the purest Aa2 milk products including A2 Vedic Ghee.
Suresh Bhanushali: Having a vast experience in the food and nutrition industry, Suresh had the vision to bring back the traditional wisdom of healthy seasonal eating habits. To start Kesariya farm, Suresh visited India’s best dairy farmers and research farms to gain knowledge about the Gir breed, their origin, their natural habitat, seasonal fodders available in nature during grazing and other related information.
Today Kesariya Farm practices an integrated agriculture approach that relies on techniques such as crop rotation, natural plant fertilization, compost, and biological pest control and strictly avoids the use of any synthetic fertilizer or pesticide.
The priority is always given to an inclusive approach that maintains biodiversity, promotes ecological balance and conserves soil integrity.
This research has helped Kesariya farm to maintain the world-class health of their Gir Cows. Also as part of their initiative to give back, they provide free consultancy to aspiring farmers to assist them in avoiding basic mistakes in desi cow-based farming, ensuring the right health for the cows & preparing the best quality of A2 milk products.
Kesariya Farms continues to focus on research, innovation and evolvement of methods, keeping track of the latest scientific developments as much as traditional know-how.
