Vegetables

This season Zacky Farms has dedicated six acres to growing organic vegetables. Our vegetables are:
 
Clean. We irrigate them with clean water that we drink ourselves. We have bored a 600 ft deep well to extract the freshest water. Our well is the deepest for miles around. Many of the vegetables available in Lahore’s markets are irrigated with water from industrial drainage, and are contaminated with heavy toxic metals.
Organic. We minimize the use of harmful pesticides and synthetic fertilizers. Whenever possible, we use cow manure and discharge from our biogas plants to fertilize our fields.
Fresh. The vegetables that come to your house will be harvested the same day. They will come directly from the field to your kitchen

 

This is how it works

Every Monday morning we send a bundle of 4-6 different vegetables and herbs, depending on what is in season. The bundle normally weighs around 4Kg, and we price it at Rs 45 a kilo. At the moment we do not have the ability to send specific vegetables of your choice.

Wheat

We grow our wheat with the same care we grow all our crops. We will wash, sun-dry and sift the wheat through a machine before we grind it. Ground whole bran wheat is Rs 40/Kg. Unground wheat is Rs 1,250 for a 40 Kg bag.
