Our Supergrains are Good for you
At Slurrp Farm we love using Supergrains! A variety of combinations of Ragi, Jowar, Foxtail Millet, Lentils, Wholewheat, good fats like real butter, real fruits and vegetables go into making all our products. Ragi has 10X more calcium than Wheat and Rice. Jowar is one of the richest sources of dietary fibre, while Lentils are a powerhouse of plant proteins.
Good for the Environment
Millets need a third of the volume of water required by Rice. They grow well even on poorly irrigated soils- which means happy farmers and an even happier environment! Millets are inherently organic in nature and are insect and pest resistant- they don’t need to be sprayed with any chemical pesticides.
And Good for the Farmer too
Millets are relatively inexpensive to grow. They are hardy grains which can withstand long periods of drought and need less water. They also require less pesticides due to their hardy nature. They are thus often cultivated as a margin crop by farmers who may not have the means for intensive cultivation. Slurrp Farm aims to empower small farmers and help build a sustainable community by encouraging the use of indigenous crops.
