Farm Story

Grown by Raqib Mushtaq on his family's 3.75 acre farm in the historic saffron district of Pampore, where they have been growing saffron for as far back as his grandparents can remember. Brought to the Valley by Persian traders in the 12th century AD, Kashmiri saffron's reputation as being the pinnacle of flavor and aroma precedes it. One whiff of Raqib's harvest and I knew it was all true!

This black tea is organically farmed on Chota Tingrai, an estate in the Tinsukia region of Assam that is one of the first tea estates to be owned and operated by an Indian family in independent India. Situated in the fertile valley of Brahmaputra, a major river that connects India, Tibet and Bangladesh, the Chota Tingrai estate has found great success in organic tea management and focuses on improving soil fertility. CTC tea — named after a processing method known as crush, tear, curl — yields a stiff, medium-strength cup that holds up beautifully to milk and spices. It is the tea of choice for the millions of cups of chai made every day on the subcontinent.

Grown by a small group of organic farmers in the Jaintia hills alongside Lakadong turmeric and black sesame. This wildly strong, surprisingly tiny heirloom ginger variety (Makhir means small in Khasi!) is sourced for us by our friends at Zizira, a small team of Meghalaya locals dedicated to connecting Meghalayan farmers to better markets. Besides sheer potency, it's also more caramel-y and aromatic than any ginger you've ever tried!

Farm Story

Grown wild and foraged by the Ningthi village in the Ukhrul hills, this sundried and hand-pounded Heimang or Chinese Sumac is sourced for us by our friends at Hillwild. Sumac is used as a tangy, flavorful souring agent when fresh lemons aren't in season, and may also ease digestion.

Farm Story

Proudly grown by a cooperative of farmers in Sirārakhong and sourced for us by our friends Zeinorin & Alan of Hillwild. Legend has it that the villagers' ancestors found these exquisitely long, vibrant chillies growing in the wild on a hunting trip that they then brought home and have made a part of their daily cuisine ever since. Many nearby villages have tried to grow the Sirārakhong Hāthei chillies, but something about the terroir of Sirarakhong produces the very best of the best! - Read The Diaspora Chilli Primer that our recipe editor Asha put together for more information about the differences between all of our chillies, including how to dehydrate whole chillies, and ideas for how to use them!

Farm Story

The Vishoi family has been farming cumin organically for the last five years in the district of Jodhpur. Our Jodhana Cumin is grown alongside groundnuts, wheat, and fenugreek, and farmed using vermicomposting, natural pest repellent, and fermented fertilizers. Mangilal Vishoi's dream is to build a resource center to provide bio inputs to other farmers and help grow the regenerative movement!

Farm Story

We're so proud to be partnering with the Agariya community, a tribe that has been working in the salt district of Gujarat, India for generations, to bring you this solar-powered, earth-filtered, and hand-pounded salt. Using solar pumps provided by our local NGO partners, the Agariyas harvest this bright, inland salt from the desert’s underground water table. The salt’s high-mineral content is preserved through a slow-filtration process through the desert soil. In partnership with a local women's self-help group, whose members then hand-pound the salt to the perfect texture for everyday use, we are able to ensure that the salt retains as much flavour as possible. Our salt comes from the famous desert salt pans in the Wild Ass Sanctuary and Little Rann of Kutch in Gujarat. After Gandhi's Dandi Salt March in 1930, Gujarati salt became a symbol of freedom and an act of nonviolent civil disobedience against the British Empire. We like to think of ours as emblematic of sunshine and freedom alike.

Grown on the Sakariya family farm, our Hariyali Fennel is found alongside Nandini Coriander, Resham Patti Chilli, desi cotton, and heirloom wheat. This variety has been derived from Sakariya family matriarch Bhanuben's indigenous seed collection, and gentle post-processing allows it to remain a beautiful parrot green color!

Farm Story

Grown on the Sakariya family farm amidst custard apples, guavas, and heirloom wheat, our Nandini coriander is named after the Sakariya family's beloved cow, the undisputed matriarch of their regenerative farm. It's a variety that Dharmesh, a third generation farmer and natural farming expert has keenly developed for its incredible fragrance and vibrant coloring.

Farm Story

Grown in the historic, rain-fed, sugarcane-growing Daund region, our jaggery is grown and processed by Kantilal Randive, a well-known soil health expert. Our sugarcane is intercropped with dhaincha (sesbania bispinosa), chickpeas, and wheat for soil health. Its juice is clarified using traditional methods — incorporating wild okra to remove the impurities — for a clean, nutty jaggery powder! Use the jaggery to sweeten your cups of chai and haldi doodh, and for other drinks, baked goods, and more! Given that jaggery has a high molasses content (AKA the nutritious brown stuff that is usually pulled out of sugar during the refining process), expect a deep, rich flavor that comes in clutch when you're subbing it in for any sugars.

Farm Story

Grown by the Bisirotti family that brings you those gorgeous Byadgi chillies, this variety of Ajwain grows wild all over the farm, and just happens to be several times more flavorful and potent than any other ajwain we've tried! Grown alongside millets, wild tomatoes and chillies in the hot, dry red earth plains of Karnataka where Maleshappa Bisirotti has become something of a farming icon for his commitment to sustainability!

Farm Story

Grown by Maleshappa Bisirotti, an award-winning natural farmer whose Byadgi chillies are famous across several states for being the gold standard of this mild, richly hued variety. We've been working with the Bisirotti family since 2019 to expand their production to meet our scale and standards, so we're very excited to finally present this epic chilli that has been years in the making! - Read The Diaspora Chilli Primer that our recipe editor Asha put together for more information about the differences between all of our chillies, including how to dehydrate whole chillies, and ideas for how to use them!

We taste tested 9 different peppers from some of the best farms and estates across the country, and this one won out by far. She's complex and deep like nice wine, and still got a nice fruity heat in the back. Grown on the Parameswaran family farm, where Parameswaran and his son Akash have been naturally farming pepper for over 35 years, amidst passion fruit, tigers (no, really!), and the largest collection of bamboo and palm varieties in the region! Their Aranya pepper is vine ripened, hand harvested with utmost care to ensure maximum flavor and unreasonably tastiness.

Farm Story

Our Aranya Black Pepper is our pride and joy, and its counterpart Aranya White Pepper is no less exceptional. Using only the ripest berries, our peppercorns are repeatedly soaked to remove the outer skin and reveal a greyish white core that is then sundried. The process is labor-intensive, but the delicious payout is worth it. The resulting pepper is sharper in taste and perfect in Regional Chinese dishes like Cantonese salt & pepper pork chops, chicken wings, hot and sour soup, and any other dishes where you don’t want the appearance of black pepper. Grown on the Parameswaran family farm, where Parameswaran and his son Akash have been naturally farming pepper for over 35 years, amidst passion fruit, tigers (no, really!), and the largest collection of bamboo and palm varieties in the region! Their white pepper is vine ripened, hand harvested with utmost care to ensure maximum flavor, and unreasonably tasty.

Mace - the dried outer lacy covering of nutmeg is its sweeter, milder counterpart with notes of raw mango, fennel, papaya, and lemongrass. Both add richness and depth to curries, spice blends, and slow cooked meats that is irreplaceable. Grown by Harish Manoj Kumar & Karthikeyan Palaniswamy on their family estate at the base of the Western Ghats alongside their award-winning Anamalai Cacao. Your mace is fully tree ripened for maximum flavor and oil content, which keeps it aromatic in your kitchen for longer! Manoj is a regenerative farmer and has converted the entire estate to be 100% chemical free since 2012, a change that has caused the nutmeg trees with their shallow root systems to really flourish and transform as the soil has gotten more and more nourishment.
