A Warm Welcome(Your Orgic Choice is the Green Future of Nepal)

The Project:

Company Overview
Søbogaard and a local dairy in nearby medieval town of Bhaktapur, have made a joint venture, supported by Danida’s Business-to-Business Programme. The project is based on the planting of Danish elderberry trees for elderflower concentrate for organic icecream and organic juice. The base for Organic Milk production is at Nuwakot Arukharka. At Gamcha we have collected a variety of test material and plant nursery material, which we plant out in large production areas, altitudes. We are Certified by Organic Certification Nepal (OCN), for all our acreage. (We arrange tours to our production fields and ice-cream factory.)

::A Warm Welcome to Gamcha Organic Farm::

Perhaps you have heard of Søbogaard in Denmark because you have come across the elderflower juice in European cafés; the honey and jam in the health shops; the mead at the ‘Middle Ages Markets’ or any one of the latest developments from a production base of over 150 items. Søbogaard has been manufacturing organic products since 1976.

Well now, we at Søbogaard have arrived in Nepal on a new organic adventure. We have our base at Gamcha Organic Farm, just 15 km from Kathmandu and 15 minutes from airport but beautifully located in the open greenery countryside. Gamcha farm was an abandoned organic farm, almost a jungle, when we arrived in April 2008. It has been a quite a challenge, but now we are very happy with the environment we have created and in which we work every day.

The farm had been organically and holistically cultivated for over 25 years and was the first place in Nepal to offer organic training, where 150 farmers in the immediate area grew and sold products to Kathmandu. There are still 46 women in the area, growing organic vegetables which are distributed each day from our farmyard to restaurants in the tourist areas, to our Farm and for home deliveries of many foreign staying in Nepal. This, together with our own production of organic vegetables and our experimental jams, juices, pesto etc from our experimental kitchen.
