Agriculture, Dairy $ Poultry

Agriculture, Dairy & Poultry Unit

On campus there are a number of fields managed by an experienced group of local men. SBMA was also the first to introduce cash crops such as: Chinese cabbage, broccoli, garlic, onions, beans, peas, spinach, potatoes, daals, tomatoes, cauliflower, cucumbers and ginger; and fruits: apricots, apples, plums, cherries, peaches, lemons, oranges and nuts. There is also a fruit preservation unit that makes chutneys and jams from different fruits.



In 'Goshala,' where you find the boys hostel, you might notice an earthy smell. Well, that is because 'Goshala' means cowshed. So, the boys learn to share their space with the cows and chickens. The youngest boy living in the ashram, Bulbeer, has taken on the responsibility of managing the chickens. The eggs are sold to the community, but anyone is welcomed to come and see how the SBMA chicken family lives. Initially, these units were used to demonstrate how to benefit from keeping domestic animals.
