About Organic India
Organic India was formed as a labor of love. Organic India began working cooperatively with farms in northern India to grow Tulsi ~ Holy Basil which was used to create their flagship product, the Original Tulsi Tea. Encouraged by the success of this project, Organic India contracted with more farmers and expanded their program to include other Indian herb, food and spice crops. The guiding principal of Organic India's company is to honor and protect the Earth by utilizing sustainable, organic and biodynamic agricultural practices and to provide a sustainable living for the farmers and tribes people they work with in India.
All of Organic India's farmers and tribal wildcrafters are trained and educated by their team and by associate experts in all aspects of organic, sustainable and biodynamic agricultural practices. Organic India pays all the fees associated with acquiring the necessary organic certifications for them, and then they purchase the crops and wildcrafted herbs that they produce at a premium market price. The farmers also rotate between growing crops on their land for Organic India with food crops for themselves and their families. This means that the farmers, wildcrafters and their families are supported by a sustainable income, while at the same time improving and preserving their own health and natural environment.

All of Organic India's facilities have been awarded SQF, HACCP, USDA, and GMP certifications, and they have obtained kosher certification for the majority of their products.

Organic India's Story
Organic India was formed in the 1990's by a small group of people from different parts of the world who met in Lucknow, a town in northern India, where they had traveled to meet a teacher named Sri H.W.L. Poonja, or Papaji as he was called by many. Drawn to India in search of truth and self-realization, they found their way to Lucknow upon hearing of the simple teachings of Papaji: "Keep Quiet. The eternal truth exists within you. Do not entertain a single thought and the truth will reveal itself to itself."
Inspired by Papaji's lifetime of service to the Indian people, this group of visionaries (and future founders of Organic India) came together to create a holistic business that would eventually change the face of agriculture in northern India. Their idea was simple: establish a business model that will support the livelihood of thousands of impoverished farmers in India by providing training and education that will enable them to be self-sufficient and to develop skills that will be passed on to their children and future generations.
This idea became a movement as the Indian people began to cultivate and develop organic, biodynamic and sustainable farming methods. The founder's mission to offer safe, healthful products to the world is the driving force behind an organic revolution that is now occurring there.
Organic India works with thousands of family farmers in India, cultivating tens of thousands of acres of farmland that has been 3rd party certified organic through funding from Organic India. The farmers are commissioned to grow organic crops under their guidance, which Organic India then purchases from them at a premium market price. Organic India also works with local tribes-people in India who ethically wildcraft herbs on 592,000 acres of forest that Organic India has converted to USDA certified organic.
Currently, Organic India markets certified organic, biodynamic, and ethically wildcrafted products throughout India, the United States, Israel, the United Kingdom, the Czech Republic, Japan and Australia.

As part of their mission to create a sustainable global environment, Organic India uses the following farming practices.
What is organic farming?
Organic farming is the practice of growing crops without the use of chemical pesticides, herbicides and fertilizers. It relies mainly on crop rotation, organic fertilizers and plant-based pesticides and herbicides to maintain soil productivity and tilth.
Why is organic farming important?
There is more and more evidence that chemical-based fertilizers, herbicides and pesticides are extremely harmful to our health. However, the strongest argument in favor of organic farming remains the environmental benefit. In a world facing a global climate crisis, it has become imperative that we do as much as possible to reduce the negative effects of global warming. Harmful emissions are released into our atmosphere during the manufacturing of these chemical fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides that have been linked to global warming. Conventional agriculture relies heavily on these chemicals which further harm our eco-system when they enter our soil and seep into water supplies.
About Biodynamic Agriculture
What is Biodynamic agriculture?
Biodynamic agriculture is a step beyond organic. It is a holistic program that utilizes crop rotation, a planting calendar using the cycles of the moon, the sun and the seasons to determine the best time to plant each crop, and specially prepared homeopathic compounds which are added to water and soil to increase the vitality of the land, the water and the crops themselves.
Why is Biodynamic agriculture important?
Using Biodynamic agriculture restores balance and increases the health of the eco systems where the method is used. While it also prohibits the use of chemical fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides, it adds elements which help to heal damage to the eco-system which has been caused by any prior use of these toxic substances.
About Ethical Wildcrafting
What is ethical wildcrafting?
Ethical wildcrafting is the practice of harvesting plants from the wild in a sustainable manner, without depleting the population or damaging the habitat of the plants that are being harvested.
Why is ethical wildcrafting important?
The population of many plants that grow in the wild is declining due to over-harvesting and loss of habitat. It is important to harvest plants in a way that ensures that they will continue to grow back each year, thus maintaining the delicate balance of their eco-system and ensuring the continued supply of these natural resources.
What is sustainable agriculture?
Farming that provides a secure living for farm families, maintains the natural environment and resources, supports the rural community and offers respect and fair treatment to all involved.
