With more than 20 varieties of greens and another 15 varieties of microgreens, this farm, that Anubhav Das and Shrishti Mandaar run, harvests 70 kgs of chemical-free greens every week.

From delivering fresh chemical-free greens to resorts and even at the doorsteps of customers in South Delhi and Gurugram, Red Otter Farms is one of India’s earliest and fastest-growing aquaponic farms.

Das started searching for alternative methods of agriculture. And that was how he stumbled upon Aquaponics. It took them two years of in-depth research about the process and custom-building their system before Red Otter Farms fully kicked off in 2016.

Today, the farm sprawls over 12,000 sq ft and harvests a range of salad greens, micro-greens and is even experimenting with the growing cherry and salad tomatoes year-long.At the moment the two are focusing on producing salad products, but the varieties will increase once the expansion happens. Apart from delivering greens to a few hotels locally and even biggies like Taj resorts and spas at Ramnagar, ROF also sells their produce to retail outlets. This is really a good initiative in the field of aquaponic farmic by the duo of Uttarakhand.
