Veda Farms is a holistic wellness company rethinking the future of healthcare and agriculture.
We are a team of farmers, doctors, entrepreneurs and medicine-makers combining regenerative agriculture with Ayurvedic medicine to create plant-based alternatives to mass-marketed pharmaceuticals.
The American healthcare system is built to generate shareholder wealth, not individual health. We believe that Ayurveda, an ancient system of personalized wellness, provides an alternative, time-tested approach to proactively building wellness through herbs, diet, exercise, yoga and meditation.
In order to provide our society with alternatives for mass-marketed pharmaceutials that are overprescribed and misused, we are reviving some of Ayurveda's most potent medicines, formulated with the world's most powerful medicinal botanicals.
A few of our herbs
Smrita M. Choubey, Founder & CEO
Smrita Choubey started her career in healthcare investment banking, and realized that the American healthcare system had many systemic challenges preventing our society from being happy and healthy. She decided to use the knowledge she gained studying economics at the University of Chicago and getting her MBA at Columbia Business School, along with the healthcare and corporate strategy skills she gained from working at J.P. Morgan and American Express, to start an alternative healthcare company rooted in Ayurveda. She founded Veda Farms to grow, research and formulate plant-based alternatives to mass-marketed pharmaceuticals.
