The dataset is about the experiences of new-entrants in the field of organic agriculture based in India. Video recordings of online conferences were utilized to analyze organic farmers' narratives using qualitative research methodology, particularly thematic analysis. The narrations were mostly typed verbatim to create transcripts and in some cases memos created by the author served as the raw data. The data deposited here contains the transcripts, notes, and codebook (in both word and excel format) consisting of all the codes originally created in NVivo software. The themes that comprise the qualitative findings cover three aspects- motivation to adopt organic farming, activities undertaken by the new-entrants, and, experiences gained through practicing sustainable agriculture..
