The Golden Dome Market in Fairfield, Iowa, USA, has achieved great business success since its opening six years ago, thanks to the popularity of its all-organic produce which is grown at MUM Farms—an organic greenhouse run by Maharishi University of Management (MUM) students and faculty.

Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Founder of Maharishi University of Management, encouraged the growth of organic produce throughout the world as part of his global initiative to eliminate poverty and promote good health for the whole population.

MUM Farms was developed as part of the University's renowned overall Sustainability programme. The produce was first sold at farm stands outside the two Golden Domes in Fairfield—where large groups practise the Transcendental Meditation and advanced Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme, including Yogic Flying, twice daily as part of the Invincible America Assembly. Eventually the market was built in 2005 as the organic food became more and more popular, explained Dr Harry Bright, Director of Business Enterprise for MUM.

The Golden Dome Market is also the first grocery store in the world built according to Maharishi Vastu (Vedic architecture) principles. The building has two floors: the first for the grocery store and the second featuring an organic cafe. Invincible America Assembly participants especially enjoy coming to have dinner at the cafe, which offers a variety of fresh dishes.

Dr Bright reported that the Market reached $1 million in sales during the last year, which greatly surpassed the original expectations for the business.
