Dayspring Farm was established to create a sustainable food income for the children at the Dayspring Home and Blossom. The farm is located next to Dayspring Home on 6 acres of land and is maintained by the Blossom Farm team who tends to the livestock and crops.
We are always looking for volunteers to join our team. If you are interested in volunteering please click here.
Thinking of the Environment
The farm is taking steps to be as eco-friendly and healthy as possible. Instead of using pesticides and chemical fertilisers, we have adopted vermicompost and Panchagavya, a mixture of the manure with ghee, curd, and milk left to ferment for around 15 days.
This year we plan to further utilise the manure by using it in our biogas project. The project turns the waste of the livestock into gas to cook with, which is not only environmentally friendly but is also very cost effective.
A Nutritious Lifestyle
The farm aims to produce adequate vegetables, fruit, milk and eggs for the children to have balanced meals three times a day. We sell any excess production to the local community for revenue to support Dayspring Home.
Types of crops cultivated include brinjal (aubergine), drumstick, beans, spinach, lady’s finger (okra), chili pepper and tomato.
Livestock reared include goats, cows, chickens, ducks, turkeys and guinea fowl.
