WHAT IS KOSARA
Kosara (कोसार), derived from Sanskrit, means a furrow or trench.
Kosara is an app-based community farming project that allows you to grow your own food on a healthy and pristine piece of land under the supervision of our experienced team of agronomists and farmers.
Kosara is also destination where life comes to take a breather. From herb gardens and fruit orchards, to regular workshops, community events and exhibitions, it is more than just your source of food. It’s a holistic movement towards food-enlightenment
Over the last few decades, as India’s food requirements have grown, its ability to grow quality food has taken a hit. Our farms have become mills and their produce, chemical concoctions. The Yamuna Belt in Delhi for example, where some of Delhi’s food is treated/cultivated, is littered with toxic chemicals that end up seeping into our food and inevitably into us.
When was the last time you bit into a Mango and had its juice stream down your hand? When was the last time that the smell of fresh coriander scuttled around your house as your mother made fresh green chutney? We at Kosara want to take you back to that moment by providing an innovative food-solution that uses age old wisdom with new age technologies to grow food like it should be Clean and Fresh!
With a team of agronomists and farmers possessing decades of collective experience, we are pioneering India’s modern food revolution.

We at Kosara use preventive and organic compliant measures instead of curative measures for farming. Throughout the growth cycle we try to ensure we use preventive measures and inputs in the form of healthy manure, bio-fertilisers etc. so that we don’t have to use synthetic/chemical inputs on them later, thus ensuring natural and healthy produce. We are also currently under the process of achieving organic certification for our farm.
When dealing with nature we must accept the fact that sometimes certain factors are beyond our control and hence we cannot guarantee a 100% success rate when it comes to agriculture.
