Valentia Farms started the journey in 2011.
It all began with the need of pure and fresh milk for self, family, and friends. To start, a piece of land was acquired in a village known as “Paschim” in Bakshi Ka Talab area. After lot of research and travel, we bought two cows. Trust me it was absolute bliss to enjoy pure and farm fresh milk.
Then we got along and thought of extending the idea of fresh milk from the immediate family to the extended family i.e., the citizens of Lucknow.
With these baby steps the journey began.
