Ananda Gaorii is a registered bio-dynamic and organic farm on 13 hectares. Due to our limited skills and finances we currently rent 8 hectares to our neighbors Jasper and Hans Peter, who grow organic barley and alfalfa and 2 hectares we share with our local veterinary doctor, Zane, as a pasture for horses and ponies. The rest we use ourselves with a small orchard with apple, pear, cherry and plum trees, a small permaculture forest garden, and various experimental garden beds for growing veggies using different growing techniques including bio-intensive raised beds, straw-bale beds and Hugelkultur. This year we will be constructing a new self-heated greenhouse which uses compost for heating.
