The sequence of events have to be shared as it would allow people to know and understand that we were providing a service that requires a lot of behind the scene efforts but at times things are beyond the best of us or our intentions .
We had our farm on land leased from a farmer in kapasera and for a period of 9 yrs which we thought was a fair enough process that would allow us to keep our own cows and maintain high quality f milk . Unfortunately one day the land lord decided he wanted way more rent as we seemed to be selling a lot of milk and overnight started harassing us in order to have the rent increased to a figure which then would need me to sell milk at Rs 200 a litre and still maybe make no money at all . Inspite of various efforts to make him see sense he wouldn't budge and started threatening us with physical harm . We had nothing to worry on the personal front so he then started harassing the farm employees , started causing harm to the animals etc etc and the situation got very ugly and at the same time I was becoming daddy for the 2nd time around so just couldn't juggle between time at home and handling the messy situation every morning and in a fit of frustration decided to just wrap up operations .
After that the things still didn't get better as the land lord would keep trying to harass us ... he wouldn't let us move any of our items out , infact for a week wouldn't even let us feed the animals as he wanted a truck load of money for breaking the lease agreement . How is one expected to deal with a local villager with no educational qualifications ?? So that was that .... this being the 3rd such situation with a greedy landlord we realized that it was better to just avoid trying to find another piece of land to start a farm as that what we had been forced to do a few times already and in the process losing a lot of money so Singha Farms was literally murdered due to the greed factor of another human being . So decided to concentrate on other things and hope someday to hit a lottery that would allow me to buy my own piece of land close to Delhi and maybe restart the same knowing that people would be glad to have the fresh pure milk back whenever we started but we couldn't do nothing then .
Now after a few yrs later Im being forced to restart by close friends, family and some old members as they all feel that they need and want the milk ...... so now we have found a friend who has his own land and he has offered to lease it to us and not turn into a greedy landlord like the ones earlier so we are hopeful that we shall be back shortly , with fresh milk at the doorsteps of ppl in Gurgaon and South Delhi though at a much more expensive price .
We are aiming to have things in place to start delivery on the 1st of August if all goes well .... we shall this time be looking at offering both fresh and packaged milk delivered to our members . We also hope that our earlier members will be glad to have us back and we hope to get more members to our system so that every one can enjoy clean pure fresh milk without the fear of any adulteration .
