Urban Harvest - a cutting edge agri company

What keeps us busy

Growing Dutch Roses and Organic Vegetable Cultivation are just starters

Floriculture

Urban Harvest is primarily into growing Dutch Roses in hi tech poly houses since its inception. Currently Urban Harvest does Dutch Rose cultivation in 4 acres of Poly house. Dutch rose cultivation is a very niche segment. It’s highly capital intensive and it is quite labor intensive as well. But on the sunny side, there is consistent demand and a rose stem can fetch you upwards of Rs5 which can go up to Rs20 during the peak season in the domestic market.

Organic Cultivation

Over the past 3 years, Urban Harvest has gained expertise in organic vegetable cultivation. We reverted to our age old systems of cultivation which is simpler and healthier than chemical farming. We replaced pesticides & chemicals with some natural concoctions like neem oil, pungam oil, agnishastra, 3g solution, panchagavya, vermiwash, vermicomposting, farm yard manure, panchagavya, jeevamrita etc.

Agri Tourism

There is a compelling need for the harried and stressed out city dweller to get away from the rigors of traffic, noise and air pollution. Urban Harvest Tourism aims to provide this escape chute to the lap of nature where guests can unwind for a day or couple of days in serene surroundings, breathe in the fresh unpolluted air and indulge in fun activities in the open. Cottages, platforms, tents, farming, vegetable picking, camping, biking and much more in store.

Vegetables at doorstep

Urban Harvest has ran their own online retail venture as www.farmbox.in. As a pilot for 6 months, the online retailing was done in 4 apartments/layouts through farmbox.in. Customers were supplied with fresh organic vegetables at doorstep weekly. The pilot was a huge success. We plan to launch farmbox.in 2.0 in coming months. Apart from online retailing, we distribute these veggies to other organic players.
