Ashwini Aurangabadkar

  • A successful Charted Accountant. Ashwini Tai (as we call her), with no agricultural background, only out of sheer love for plants, started doing weekend farming in 2009 on just 4 acres of land and is a Full time Lady Farmer since 2012, with a well-developed biodiverse farm of 19 acres which includes Bamboo also. She has invested in mini dal mill to process her organically grown Toor in to Toor Dal. The purpose to start a Dal mill was that she was not sure that her produce would be processed separately in other dal mill, where she used to send her produce. Does traditional farming without chemical fertilisers and pesticides. She has been able to achieve minimum wastage in farm produce by processing as far as possible for value addition.
