David Gower handed over the business to Khorate and since then Ambrosia Organic Farms have been thriving and even thriving overseas.

Now, Janardan is on a mission to help farmers by providing free seed and compost to all its registered Indian farmers. “I have successfully connected over 4,000 organic farmers across India from Tamil Nadu to Himachal Pradesh. 20% of the profits from Ambrosia Organic Farms go towards educating the farmers’ children,” adds Khorate. “Every year, a large number of farmers contact us. After the lockdown, the numbers increased by more than 300%.”
