What keeps us busy
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.
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.
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.

Cottages, platforms, tents, farming, vegetable picking, camping, biking and much more in store.
