Two farmlands were purchased at Kengeri Hobli, Bangalore South Taluk, one in 1962 and the other in 1964. It is with the aim of developing a model dairy farm providing training facilities in dairy farming and agriculture for the students of Dharmaram College, and to undertake social service activities. The dairy farms are also a source of income to meet the day-to-day expenses of the College. Over the years these two sites were developed into farms and were named St. Mary’s and Devadan.
