Lush green shola forests, carpets of tea gardens and agriculture that supports a plethora of different fruits and vegetables, resonates with The Nilgiris. Though strategically located and blessed with ideal growing conditions, The Nilgiris is no exception to challenges our agricultural sector faces. Unsustainable farming practices, unpredictable weather conditions, the loss of nutrition and quality in the supply chain, eventually contributing to a substandard produce.

CONTINUUM farms are located at multiple elevations in the Nilgiri hills. Our grow areas are at an elevation between 1250m to 1800m. This allows us to grow a wide range of leafy greens and fruiting vegetables. The fluctuations in temperature, humidity and availability of sunlight are minimal. This allows us to create a conducive environment to grow a wide range of produce. The water we have in the Nilgiris is at a PPM of 50 or below. This eliminates the need to treat or process water. It also ensures that the plants are able to absorb the nutrition easily. Lack of good quality water is a major challenges challenge for hydroponic farms in India. The Nilgiris district shares the border between three states. Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and Kerala. This ensures that our produce is available in all major cities in South India, within 24hrs of harvest. Given all these great attributes of the Nilgiris.
Our cultivation methods ensure individual crop gets, the precise quantities of the essential mineral. The required nutrition is made available, directly to the roots. This enables us to grow more in less space, and more so, it ensures a high level of nutrition in the produce. Once the crop is harvested, there is a 30% loss in nutrition and this applies to all farming methods. Multiple handling at multiple places in the supply chain journey, only adds to the loss of nutrition. Most often, the consumer is left wondering about the real benefits of the food they consume. We bring you the produce directly from the farm and make it available at hotels & restaurants, large retailers and at your homes. We eliminate all the multiple handling seen in the existing supply chain as we operate our own reefer trucks from the farm to the consumers doorstep delivering nutrition rich and great looking produce.
