While the name may sound like that, the Madman’s farm is not about an individual but about the spirit of madness, of sanity, of path less travelled. There are lot of friends involved in the farm in their own ways. Some live on the farm while others contribute from where ever they are.

Late Shri Deepak Suchde (Baba) inspired us to take up Natural farming. He was a pioneer of Natueco farming (Amrit Krishi). Baba not only taught us about farming but also a lot about life itself.
Rajesh Ji has been instrumental in every aspect of development at the farm. Be it farming, health, happiness, learning, spirituality or cooking- he offers deep insights and powerful perspectives which really helps one grow.
Jinan has been working on Natural Learning and Damages of Schooling and modernity for almost three decades. Our learning initiatives are inspired from his work. We learnt with him how to stay a learner, to be present, to not rely too much on reasoning.
