In Sanskrit, go = cows; pal = friend; Gopal Farm means "Friend of the Cows Farm".
Gopal Farm was founded in 2016 by Nimai and Ashley. Its original farm is located on the fertile flood plains of the Wallkill River, in the Hudson Valley town of New Paltz, NY, dedicated to practicing agriculture in a way that heals and restores to health many ancient seeds, our soil, our land, and our human and natural communities. Since then we have developed farms on Cape Cod in Massachusetts as well as Mango, Coconut and other tropical farms in Pine Island off the coast of Florida.
We are focused on growing heirloom Indian ethnic specialty vegetables, tropical fruits, spices and Ayurvedic herbs sourced from seeds harvested from different regions of India including from the foothills of the Himalayas. Our produce thus retains the distinctive aromas, flavors and health attributes for which Indian herbs, vegetables, and spices are renowned worldwide. Thereby we hope to preserve many ancient varieties while they are becoming obsolete even in India.
We also produce Ethical milk products sourced from our small herd of A2/A2 grass-fed dairy cows. Our 200-acre experimental dairy farm is located just outside Hudson Valley's old town Poughkeepsie, NY. Our raw milk will be sold directly from the farm, and the pasteurized milk, yogurt, ghee, and other Ethical milk products will be sold from our booth at Union Square Farmer’s Market.
We sell our products to gourmet New York City restaurants and operate a CSA. Cows are an integral part of our community. We are researching and implementing how we can use their various byproducts in support of sustainable agriculture, utilizing concepts learned from ancient Indian Vedic texts for sustainable agriculture in crop production.
