Our Shared Journey:

For our family, Prakruti Farms and Forgotten Foods are more than just businesses; they are labor of love and a testament to our shared values. As we tend to the land, harvest the bounty, and share our heritage with others, we are guided by a sense of kinship and connection – to each other, to our ancestors, and to the land that sustains us.

Our vision is to make a positive impact on the world by promoting healthier food choices that have been forgotten or overlooked over time. We believe that by introducing these ancient foods to the market, we can not only provide a healthier option but also offer a deeper connection to our cultural heritage.

In today's fast-paced world, it's easy to forget our roots and lose touch with the valuable knowledge and traditions that have been passed down through generations. Unfortunately, this has led to the neglect of many ancient foods, recipes, and remedies that have been used for centuries to promote good health and wellbeing.

We recognize the importance of preserving these traditions and revitalizing the use of forgotten foods, recipes, and remedies. We understand that these remedies and foods have stood the test of time, and we want to bring them back to the forefront of people's minds and kitchens.

Our aim is to provide the best natural foods and also inspire people to reconnect with nature, grow their own food by regenerative farming methods and live self sufficiently. 


We believe in the local food movement and support organic and natural farming. The native indigenous crops that nature has provided us through millions of years of evolution is far more superior in terms of nutrition, resistance to pests and tolerance to climatic changes when compared to the lab made Genetically Engineered (GE) or GMOs which also come along with a bundle of side effects.



    We believe in empowering the small scale farmers by encouraging them to grow  native local varieties of crops rather than industrially grown crops in a mass scale  and becoming overly dependent on big companies for seeds, chemicals and food supply. The old ways of small scale, high diversity, natural and organic farming is the way forward.
