In picturesque Hertfordshire on the outskirts of London, we meet ‘Syam’ a Hare Krishna devotee and farmer who uses traditional farming practices rarely seen in the modern western world. He demonstrates how Cows and Oxen can be much more valuable to us than just meat and milk.

In 1972 George Harrison donated New Gokul Farm in the grounds of the Bhaktivedante Manor to Hare Krishna devotees. Today the farm is managed by Syam who uses oxen to plough the fields and other traditional farming methods. As interest in ethically raised livestock and organic produce increases New Gokul Farm offers a glimpse of an alternative, sustainable lifestyle.
