OUR STORY

It started in a small way, back in 2005 with farmers from Gunipalli deciding to work together for their mutual benefit. Gunipalli is in Bukkapatnam Mandal in Anantapur District, AP. Farmers were not getting the right price for their produce after months of hard work during the agriculture season. A few outsiders from a then small NGO called the Centre for Collective Development (CCD) helped the farmers work out their aspirations.

Today there are over 36,000 + farmers working together across 3 districts. The movement is slowly spreading to other States.

As of now, only the profit goes to the farmers. In the long run, the ownership will also entirely go the farmers of India.  That’s why we say: Farmveda – owned by the farmers of India

For instance, Ramana Reddy was one of the farmers who joined early. He is an intelligent farmer from Gunipalli. In his young days, he was inspired by leftist ideology. He left his home and was away for 10 years. He realized his folly and came back to farming. Today he is the President of the Satya Sai Rythu Samakhya (Satya Sai Farmer Federation) which is in Anantapur District having 9000+ farmers spread across more than a hundred villages. His level of dedication towards the cause is unparalleled. When the Makkajipalli mill was being set up, he made sure he was around all the time which meant sleeping under a tree. He was one of a handful of people who worked hard to realize their collective dream. When asked why he took so much trouble, he said “I have given my word – maata ichanu.”
