We at Farm to Fellas, take immense pride in being a part of the very few people aimed at bringing the experience of pure, hygienic and responsibly procured products from our farms to your dining tables. Our unyielding commitment to using traditional techniques boasts of the hard work put in by our dedicated farmers and villagers, especially rural women, rather than the mechanically processed items that fill the shelves of markets today. Our efforts are directed towards empowering the ones growing our food and ensuring they get a fair price for their relentless toil.
We at Farm to Fellas make our shakkar through evaporating juice obtained from organic sugarcane with constant stirring to ensure that the crystals obtained are of a fine grain size that is perfect to sweeten beverages such as your daily cup of tea! The brown colour is due to the presence of molasses which is rich in a number of viable nutrients and also responsible for its delicious taste.
Shakkar is also called Ayurvedic Sugar, owing to it playing an integral role in various Ayurvedic medicines and concoctions. Being chemically unprocessed, it possesses a number of essential nutrients that processed cane sugar lacks. Here are a few benefits of consuming shakkar:-
