Krac-a-Dawna: Organic is the only sensible way
Juli and Vivek Cariappa met as students in Delhi in the 1980’s. Against the advice of friends and family, they were determined to become organic farmers. Their vision was to demonstrate the viability of organic farming in rural India and to enable other families to farm in a sustainable way AND be debt free.
Over the last 25 years, the Cariappa family has built up Krac-a-Dawna farm, in the state of Karnataka, South India and successfully combined food with cotton production. They grow over 30 different crops, doing as much on-farm processing and direct sales as they can. They have enabled over 200 farmers around them to become organic too.
This film is their story in their own words.
