LE MILLET RETROUVE LES CHAMPS FRANÇAIS

Avec les pionniers de la révolution millet

Ce sont de petites perles jaunâtres qui ont disparues des champs de France au début du XXe siècle, au bénéfice de l’Inde, du Nigeria ou du Niger. Le millet a pourtant 1001 bienfaits, notamment l'absence de gluten et une culture économe en eau. C’est ainsi, que deux militants de Terra Millet et une poignée d’agriculteurs sèment à nouveau cette céréale, entre Vendée, terre historique du mil, et Loire-Atlantique.

Grâce à lui, la Vendée retrouve son millet

OUI! Magzaine, Par Aurélien Culat ,

Il fait un carton avec sa culture de millet. Nouveau grain à la mode pour hipsters de retour d’Inde ? Plutôt un retour à la céréale de papy, traditionnelle du terroir vendéen.

Sukrishi looks surreal. Sprawling across 40 acres, it seems to be the perfect place to get lost. One can have almost all fruits, except apple, in this paradise on earth. “We grow orange, avocado, guava and custard apple besides a wide variety of vegetables and herbs. You can pick them off the plants in the backyard, not the shelf,” says Jayaram H.R., founder of the organic farm house.

Located at Nelamangala, which is about 50km away from the Bengaluru International Airport, Sukrishi has been a haven for tired souls. Some rediscover themselves in this solitude.

For 34-year-old Hanna Meiners, a German Finnish native, the trip to Sukrishi turned out to be a life-changing experience. Smitten by the charm of rustic life, Meiners came back and stayed at Sukrishi again as a volunteer and went on to become an organic promoter. “For me the farm is a great place to connect with nature. The peace and greenery in the natural environment is just overwhelming,’’ says Meiners, who has been to Sukrishi several times between 2011 and 2016.

“I experienced farming, planted trees and saw how vermicompost works,’’ says Meiners who enjoys going on long walks in the farm.

Sukrishi is a great example of how a steady effort will eventually bear fruit, says Meiners. “It reminds people from cities of the importance of nature and its healing effect. In that sense, the farm serves as a great opportunity to learn, too,” she says.

Meiners loves the local cuisine served at Sukrishi, especially the snacks. The variety of food in the farm house is just mind-boggling. Meals are a big affair here with roti, rice, sambar, numerous chutneys and dishes made of raggi and millets.

Martine Dugue from France became a huge fan of the millet-based dishes during her stay at Sukrishi. Back in France, she started ‘Terra Millet’, an organisation to promote millets.

Tourists who want to experience local cuisine do not go to big hotels, says Jayaram. “They prefer places like Sukrishi. We offer simple food, prepared by the locals,” he says.

There are foreign tourists who come and stay in our farm house for many weeks, every year. Despite having foreign clientele, Sukrishi keeps the prices as low as possible so as to attract native tourists. “We charge just Rs 1,500 per head for a 1N/1D package, inclusive of accommodation and all the meals,’’ says Jayaram.

For those who want to flee from the chaotic city life, Sukrishi represents the ultimate in luxury.
