Do you know who started the first Donkey Farm or who introduced donkey milk? So, let me tell you that Aby Baby was the first person to introduce the benefits of donkey's milk and cosmetics based on donkey's milk to the public. He owns the first donkey farm in India which is located at Ramamangalam in Ernakulam district, Kerala. When he first started a farm that brought donkeys to his place, locals and relatives discouraged Aby. But he did not give up and set up his dream venture, Donkey Farm. With 30 donkeys of different breeds, Aby Baby is thankful for the revolutionary changes in this field. He developed world-class cosmetic products from donkey's milk, which are just as nutritious as breast milk.

He was an employee of the marketing department of an IT company for 19 years. In that that busy career, he embraced the idea of starting his own business. The idea from the Bible also gave new dimensions to that thought. The Bible testifies that ‘Iyob had a thousand donkeys’. He realized that this verse had something to do with business. Female donkeys are reared only for milk. The letters that were so importantly written in the Bible also marked a turning point in Aby’s life. The donkey has the ability to cross difficult trails, to remember the same paths, and to find its master in any crowd. Donkeys are a prime example of mutual love. Aby called the donkeys the greatest animal in the world and not considered them a sign of stupidity. He roamed South and North India in search of donkeys to mark the start of his business venture. In the end, the journey turned out well. He acquired 30 female donkeys and one male donkey from different parts of Tamil Nadu. The Dolphin IBA manufacturing unit is the result of his subsequent hard work and research. It will be operational in 2016.

He launched Fairness Cream, Shampoo, Soap, Lip Balm, Body Wash and many more products under the brand name "Dolphin IBA". This is the first such venture in India. His products are very popular not only in India but also abroad. In addition to being a cosmetic, his creams have the unique ability to cure skin diseases. It was built by a team of chemists under his supervision. He assures us that there are no side effects from using it. It contains 100% natural ingredients. Its sales are active using new media such as Amazon. It is used as a milk powder. It's expensive to do this. If one ton of milk is cooled and dried, 70 kg of powder is obtained. The machinery used for this process is worth Rs 1.5 crore. For these reasons, the value of these value-added products is a bit high. The market price of a liter of milk is Rs. 5000-6000. Not only milk and value added products but also donkey’s urine and dung earns him income.

There are many people in our country who have lost their jobs due to Covid-19. He puts forward the idea of a donkey farm for those who have lost their jobs and are looking for new ways. He was 100% successful in this project and is an inspiration for many of them today. He wants to run a large farm with about 500 donkeys in the coming days if the central government gives its approval. He also plans to open new outlets in Kerala in this connection.
