The good news: Contrary to news reports, a iconic Parsi Dairy Farm is not shutting down. The association is offered off a 300-acre parcel of land at Talasari, an rural land in Warvada encampment on a Maharashtra-Gujarat border.

“We are not shutting down. That’s not true. It is a rumour,” a manager during a Parsi Dairy Farm during Princess Street, said. He was tight-lipped about divulging any serve details. However, he simplified that a organisation was offered off a land during Talasari.

This comes even as a Times of India news has suggested that a iconic dairy plantation would close down. The Nariman family, that founded a dairy, bought a land back in 1968 for stock and to support a dairy activities. The reports also suggests that the family might demeanour to close emporium or sell a code in a nearby future.

When each store we can consider of in a city has marched with a times with glossy emporium fronts, splendid seat and snazzy name boards, Parsi Dairy Farm has remained an anachronism that speaks of a stately time when Mumbai was Bombay — with mills, indent workers, sound of sirens signalling time to go to work, usually black and yellow taxis, accessible shopkeepers who were famous to family, et al.

The blue shopfront with a name, Parsi Dairy Farm, created in black and divert cans outward is one such informed and comforting image. It has remained unchanging too with a peculiarity in divert and divert products.

If we haven’t slurrped `shudh’ ghee, abounding divert or their tawny desserts during Parsi Dairy Farm, we haven’t unequivocally lived in Mumbai.


The Parsi Dairy Farm was founded in 1916 by Parsi businessman Nariman Ardheshir, and has given been run by a Nariman family. It was enclosed in CNN Travel‘s 10 selected Bombay brands in 2010 and is one of a many busy honeyed shops in South Mumbai.

It has not been a well-spoken float for a store. The emporium remained sealed from Nov 2006 to Jun 2007 after workers went on strike protesting non-payment of dues, according to a Mumbai Mirror report. In 2008, a workers designed another strike over salary issues, continues a report.

The altogether prolongation of a plantation has also left down, over a past decade-and-a-half, with a business plummeting from provision 15,000 litres of divert a day to hardly 2,000 litres today, according to The Times of India.

The good news is that a Parsi Dairy Farm is going to be around.
