I was born and raised in Hansapur, Ghorka and have been making my livelihood through agriculture all my life. The major cash-crops that we grow here are oranges, rice and cardamom. Our village lies at a beautiful location but it is also very remote from the nearest town, let alone Kathmandu. Thus, selling our produce hasn’t always been easy.
Everything on our farm is done by the members of the family. Sometimes even my other children come from Kathmandu to help with harvesting and planting. Like many other farmers in the village, we as well are avoiding to use any harmful fertilizers and pesticides. We rather use the methods that were passed on to us by our grandparents, and they always work. If you are interested in them, visit us and I will show you how we've been doing things here.
I'm getting old, so one of my sons has decided to take over most of the main work on the farm. He was also the one who introduced me to coffee farming. When he saw other farmers planting coffee plant, he planted a few plants too. And soon everyone in the neighborhood suddenly grew coffee. It turned out that coffee grows quite nicely here, so he planted some more. Today we have around twenty plants and they bear a decent amount of coffee beans. Of course, we would like to plant more, and we will do it when coffee farming proves to be profitable for us.
Comment by Fairdirect e.V.: Due to the remoteness of her farm with no proper Internet access, and due to lack of a computer, Jhamka Devi Adhikari lets her webshop be managed by the Fairdirect e.V. association. We have interviewed Jhamka Devi Adhikari and translated and edited the shop and product descriptions from that. As always with sales facilitated by Fairdirect e.V., the contract will be between you and the farmer – Fairdirect will not be party to it. You can contact Eva Pivač <email@example.com>, our manager of the Hansapur shipment center, with your questions regarding this webshop. You can also contact Jhamka Devi Adhikari directly at her mobile phone number. You may need a Nepali translator to communicate with her.
