Seedlings

Our Origins

Graduating fresh out of school, Farmistan took shape in 2003 in Delhi NCR region while buying fresh produce at grocery store. Prices of these perishable goods were exorbitant in comparison to price we sell at our own family farms to distributors and traders. Farmistan was thus born to directly sell premium quality vegetables and fruits nutritionally grown in the foothills of Himalayan region.


After discussions with several legacy farmers in the foothills of Himalayas (Terai region), Farmistan’s vision was strengthened by their unanimous endorsement in creating a farm to table initiative by directly delivering quality farm products to consumers, fresh from the farms. Farmistan continues to produce as well as procure very high quality dairy, vegetables, spices, fruits, nuts & oil seeds from these niche community farmers that remain committed to growing excellent products. 

Our legacy farms follow hundreds of years old proven farming practices that are passed on from one generation to another. These Himalayan farming techniques have always been and continue to be sustainable, integrated and nearly free of pesticides, fertilizers, and chemicals. Since inception in 2003, Farmistan has consistently delivered straight from farms best quality vegetables like tomatoes, onions, bell peppers to our loyal customers who continue to purchase from us for more than a decade now. We also sell various fruits like Lychee, Guavas grown either at our farms or from our more than 15 years old farmers co-op initiative which we proudly consider to be an extension of our family !
