Our farmers from Budaun, Uttar Pradesh cultivate a variety of organic and sustainably grown crops like Organic Basmati, Pearl Millet, Mustard, Sesame and more, which are then fine-graded and checked for quality assurance before distribution.
Location of the Project
The NBF project is located in the central region of Budaun, Uttar Pradesh, and borders the Shahjanpur district. This area is conveniently accessible, situated 300 km from Delhi, the capital of India, and 350 km from Lucknow, the capital of Uttar Pradesh. Budaun is a thriving agricultural trade center due to its fertile soil and prime location near the Soth river, a tributary of the Ganges.
Coordinates – The project’s coordinates fall between 79.13 and 79.65 longitude east and 27.71 and 28.01 latitude north.

Nature Bio Foods’ Budaun Project is certified by the Regenerative Organic Alliance (ROA) for implementing regenerative agricultural practices on its farmland. By farming in accordance with ROA standards, Nature Bio Foods is helping to sequester carbon, build healthier communities, and produce more nutritious and abundant food. We believe that regenerative organic agriculture has the power to address several pressing issues, such as soil degradation, loss of biodiversity, climate change, and poverty. Our project in Budaun follows the principles of regenerative organic farming that focuses on building soil health, biodiversity, and ecosystem services through practices such as cover cropping, crop rotation, inter-cropping, composting, and agroforestry.
At NBF, we strive for a world that is free from toxic chemicals, factory farming, exploitation, income inequality, soil degradation, habitat destruction, pollution, short-term thinking, corporate bullying, greenwashing, and fake food. We achieve this by following the standards set forth by ROC.
Our goal at NBF is to bring together farmers, brands, policymakers, educators, researchers, and individuals to create a healthy food system that values and respects the land and animals, empowers people, and restores communities and ecosystems through regenerative organic farming practices and principles.
NBF places great value on the health of our interconnected planet and all of its inhabitants, both above and below ground. To ensure a healthy planet, abundant and nutritious food, and thriving people for generations to come, we continuously strive to improve the way we farm.

Organic Farms of Budaun, Uttar Pradesh
The Budaun project’s topography consists of a planned landmass with multiple rivers, such as Ganga, Ramganga, and Soth, providing high fertility to the land. The Tarai region also contributes to the district’s pleasant climate, making it an ideal location for the project.
The Budaun project is located in the Mid Western Plain Zone of Uttar Pradesh and experiences rainfall from mid-June to mid-October, with an annual average of 882 mm. The average annual temperature in Budaun is 24.5°C (76.2°F). The hottest month of the year is May with an average temperature of 45.4°, while January is the coldest month, with an average temperature of 4.5°C.
800-900 mm (Average)
There are mainly three seasons.
Farm Water Availability
Most of the area in the project is rainwater-dependent. Borewells are the primary sources of irrigation for the majority of crops. The Ground-Water level found within is 35-40 ft.
Nature of Farmers
Farmers are quite cooperative and agree to adopt new methods of farming to reduce the cost of production and increase their incomes.
Being less educated, they stay away from the reach of electronic media but the new generation of farmers has started using smartphones.
Most of the farmers in the project area are financially poor and illiterate, with an average landholding of less than 2 hectares. Therefore, they rely on their own farm resources and traditional methods, such as using animal power (bullocks and buffaloes) for ploughing. However, farmers with larger landholdings have access to various machines and are willing to share them with others for a minimum rent. Farmers store their own farm seeds for future sowing and replace them after three or four years. Agricultural activities are guided by the “Krishi Panchang,” with decisions regarding seed sowing, land preparation, transplanting, and pest and disease control based on the position of the Grah and Nakshatra.

Impact of our Farmers
Farmers employ various methods to enhance soil fertility, such as crop rotation, cover cropping, reduced tillage, and application of compost. By reducing fuel-intensive tillage, less soil organic matter is lost to the atmosphere, leading to carbon sequestration. This reduces greenhouse gases and helps to reverse climate change. Moreover, reduced tillage can improve soil structure and decrease the possibility of soil erosion.
Difference our People are Making
Our organization uses several processes such as converting land from conventional management to organic management, managing the entire surrounding system to ensure biodiversity and sustainability, and crop production with the use of alternative sources of nutrients such as crop rotation, residue management, and organic manures. We provide complete biological inputs to our crops.
We also manage weeds and pests through better management practices, physical and cultural means, and our teams supervise and manage these activities. This approach makes us an integral contributor to the cause of sustainability.
Contribution by our Customers
Consumers are becoming increasingly aware of food safety and environmental issues, and their concern for their own health, the environment, and worldwide crises has risen exponentially. Organic agriculture has always been a production option followed by a few farmers worldwide, but now it has become the only option for many consumers. Simply by consuming organic produce, consumers are contributing to the overall health of the planet and creating an impact.
