About Us

A farmer's organization under KORFA came into existence to support the farmers in their venture for sustainable organic farming. The primary objective of KORFA is to educate the farmers in sustainable Organic Farming and manage the farms without destroying the ecology. They are encouraged to protect the flora and fauna of the surroundings through Self-Help- Groups.

At present our organisation has 50 members. There is a seven member executive committee having one chairman, secretary and treasurer. The executive committee make policies and decisions. There is an independent approval committee elected from the farmers group and an ICS coordinator, which takes all the decisions of ICS. The ICS coordinator will look after the internal controlling system viz., implementation of internal standards, perception of regulations by the farmers, inspection, documentation, purchase, etc. There will be a documentation officer for keeping quality of the documentation, with two internal inspectors, who inspect the farmers as per our internal standards and report to the ICS committee.

Farmers here are mainly dependent on rubber plantation and animal husbandry. The farmers from the region are not using chemical fertilizers and pesticides as the agriculture is a business that pays better remuneration to them. Also due to existing / surrounding nature, is such that they get plenty of green turf, which is also used for soil and water conservation. This pays more than their conventional practices.

The rubber plantations have a life span of 33-35 years. 30% of the trees are replanted every five years. The other valuable timbers are allowed to grow their natural full size. This is then sold as timber, when these plants are mature and can get the maximum size.
