Barley is a hardy crop, which was once farmed in dry, hot regions of Maharashtra. Barley slowly lost it's charm and became a wild crop which is now grown as a cattle feed in the Nasik and Gadhchiroli region of Maharashtra. In 2017 we partnered with 1,200 small farmers from Akola (Maharashtra) and Chetana Organics and Brewcrafts Microbrewing (popularly knows as Doolally) to revive this crop in Vidarbha. The project demonstration has been successfully completed and is transitioning into a commercially viable project to cover 100 acres land. Team Happy Roots has put together a delicious sweet snack made from this homegrown barley, which will be launched in October, 2017.
