Drawing inspiration from the Malabar Coast’s legacy as the threshold of both high-quality produce and premium quality spices that the world has always sought (and, sometimes fought over!), Thottam Farm Fresh believes in the importance of going back to the roots (quite literally!) to leave a long-lasting, positive impact.
Our name itself derives its meaning from the Malayalam word for “plantation,” because we believe a healthier, happier world begins with a healthier, happier stomach that has been nourished with wholesome produce from the finest farmland soil.
I’m Nikhil George, a novice farmer (we have other expert farmers on the team). Around 10 years back, my father (a lawyer by profession) bought a farm in Angamaly, Kerala because of his passion for farming. I believe his passion for farming comes from his father, who used to be farmer and school teacher. At our farm, we follow sustainable organic cultivation practices and grow spices, fruits and keep honeybees. In 2018, we decided to sell our produce directly to consumers through our own online store for spices, tea and other great products. That was the genesis of this e-commerce online store. For transparency, we want to say that we don’t produce everything we sell under our brand. When we run out of our own produce or if we don’t grow a particular item, we source produce from farmers we know well. When sourcing produce, we understand our partner farmers growing practices and ensure that they get a fair price for the produce. We do this because we want our customers to experience the benefits of eating healthy, wholesome food.
We are headquartered in Kerala and we aren’t just a brand; we’re trying to be an ecosystem that empowers farmers in India (mostly Kerala for now) through sourcing and packaging of nutritious produce through fair-trade practices, which customers can relish and benefit from health-wise. Sip, bite and sprinkle – being a part of our positive cycle is this simple!
