Summary

Small organic farmers must adopt innovative strategies in order to survive in today’s competitive marketplace. The Mojo spice farm is a small family-run enterprise located in the rainforests of the Western Ghats in southern India. Over the years we have evolved a strategy that successfully combines organic agriculture with biodiversity conservation and sustainable agro-tourism. The linkages between these 3 areas and how they can benefit small organic farmers will be shown using our farm as an example.
