Field visits to meet farmers is an important activity for Zizira. This is something you may have noticed. And we follow up the field visits to meet farmers with reports on what the team heard, saw and learnt. The objective being to understand the world of farmers by seeking answers to questions like:
What are the farmers cultivating?
Do they get adequate returns for the ‘investments’ they make by way of labor and money?
Is it easy to reach their produce to the market?
What are their pain points? Where do they need help, if any?
Normally, most of them follow organic farming. But, do they know the value of following organic farming?
Are they aware that the Government of India and the Government of Meghalaya are promoting organic farming?
Why field visits to meet farmers?
To bring the hidden potential of NE India to the fore by creating a market for the natural and healthy produce that grow in abundance here. To realize the potential of family farms in the Northeast India. Read more about our rationale.
