Black pepper Farming

According to Ayurveda, Black Pepper offers health benefits, including improved digestion, detoxification, respiratory support, & anthelmintic effects. Of the 6 Rasas (essence/taste), Blackpepper is known for its pungent taste. It pacifies Vata & Kapha doshas while increasing Pitta dosha. Because of its hot potency, it is to be avoided by those prone to gastritis, burning sensations etc.

Prana Kitchens sources Black Pepper from Mr. James Laiju’s Farm. While it is a family inherited farm, Mr. Laiju has pivoted entirely to natural & organic farming techniques using practices prescribed by Vriksha Ayurveda (science of plant life). He has painstakingly developed natural crop enhancers, antifungal & bio repellent treatments. His efforts have helped purge heavy metal & chemical residues from the soil yielding
a nutritive, Vit-C rich, immensely flavorful pepper in his thriving farm.

Mr. James Laiju grows black pepper in his village Koovapally, a lower valley in the Western Ghats of Kerala. He continues his ancestors’ legacy of organic farming, but has enhanced it with practices from Vriksha Ayurveda. Using this science, Mr. Laiju enriches micronutrients in the soil, creates bio pest repellants, and protects his plants from disease.
