Success story through organic tea farming
A hard working, educated youth of Hograjuli-Panchnoi area under Dhekiajuli PS in Sonitpur district has scripted a success story through organic tea farming.
Pallabjyoti Nath, a 36-year-old Economics graduate from Gauhati University and a skilful tea gardener is now reaping success after years of arduous struggle. A kind, simple and down-to-earth youth, Nath who is popular as Rubul among the people, started tea cultivation in a small plot covering only eight bighas of land in 2009. He is now the owner of more than 30 bighas of organic tea gardens having a global clientele across Canada, UK, Italy, Germany, etc.
At first I faced a lot of constraints as people couldnt understand the importance of this economically viable method and even I had to wait for customers. But today, I cannot provide the required amount of teas as the demand has grown substantially. After working for about three years, I with the help of my elder brother Pranabjyoti Nath, created a site www.assamicaorganictea.in through which we got a good feedback from across most of the advanced countries.
He added, Manmoyuri Devi, a founder member of the company has been taking care of the sales and marketing operations for the company since its inception. A lawyer by education, Manmoyuri based in Trivandrum, Kerala also takes care of the accounts and taxation related matters of the company. After visiting our site in 2013, a London-based customer, Timothy Gofe, came to me and since then besides giving many beneficial suggestions he has remained a permanent customer of our product. He even provides financial assistance for labour welfare to inspire us to give priority to dignity of labour.
