Under The Mango Tree (UTMT) is a social enterprise that promotes beekeeping to increase agricultural productivity, enhance incomes and improve livelihoods of marginal farmers in India. UTMT utilizes the power of market forces to provide poor farmers with a lucrative income stream by training them to use bees to diversify their revenue sources and by establishing market access for the honey produced.
