Our Farms and Orchards

Naturellement has since its start supported organic farming, using organically grown raw material whenever available. Auroville's farms and orchards are supplying us directly with fresh organic products: mango, orange, lime, lemon, nartanga, kumquat, papaya, peanuts, cucumber, basil...all harvested by hand at the peak of ripeness.

Over the years many changes have taken place in the Auroville Township, but nothing has been as dramatic or as internationally acclaimed as the greening of the wasteland.

When Auroville began, the area was a barren eroding plateau with the odd scattered tree and a rapidly expanding network of canyons and ravines. Today it is a testament of the self-healing power of nature.

Millions of trees have been planted and widespread forests developed. Hand in hand with the reforestation work, numerous farms and orchards have been created aiming to produce natural and healthy food, while sustaining the environment.

Organic farming is practiced, banning the use of chemical pesticides and fertilizers, thus protecting our eco-system, farmers and consumers and building a sustainable future.
