About the Homestead

  • The first floor is a sky-light glass house and has again four beds accommodation. The first floor has a kitchen, toilet, small balcony and terrace with a swing.
  • We have a small play court created and is used as multi-purpose like drying grains.

  • We dug an open-well (25 feet wide & 60 feet deep) that supplies us clean potable water and, this water sustains us all year round for irrigation too.

  • A cowshed that can house up to six cows.
About the Forest

We just love creating forests

  • At first, we created an herbal/medicinal forest of 1200 sq-meters using Akira Miyawaki methodology.
  • The second is a fruit forest, and the third is a timber forest.
  • The three forest patches are now well developed and, thriving with thousands of trees.
  • The fourth patch with more than 400 trees are completed with sowing and the last patch will be developed in year 2024.

About our Farming

Natural farming principles

The whole farm is developed using farm/cow manure and, cocopeat; we never use chemical farming.

  • We developed a manure system connecting cowshed and, this system supply manure to each farm patches for agriculture and forestry work.
  • We collect and channel rainwater to an harvesting pond created adjacent to the well and this pond helps replenish the well.
  • We use flood irrigation for cultivations and drip irrigation for all other forestry work.
About Us

Our farming methods are the practices we got inspired by some of the great souls like Nammazhvar G, Subhash Palekar, Masanobu Fukuoka, Akira Miyawaki and, Bill Mollison.

  • We are staunch followers of Natural Farming/Permaculture principles and considerable effort is still ongoing to develop the farm in a sustainable manner.
  • We both continue as weekend farmers & passionate to bring few 1000 more trees to the farm.
