A brief description of organic activities

We grow coconut, mango, banana,paddy,turmeric,taro,elephant foot yam etc..following Fukuoka's natural farming principle. Planting, harvesting and some amount of weed control will be the basis of all farming activities.


Charles from Canada originally from Trinidad and Tobago helping me in planting greater yam. He has spent 3 weeks in farm house with no electricity and cooking using wooden stove. But he also depended on the hotels nearby.


Right now this staying facility is not given to visitors since I started staying there for some time to complete some pending works

Lovely that people are realizing the significance of farming. Dairy farming should also be given equal importance as cow is an essential part of balanced farming and many products from cow are vital in efficient farming organically. There are many such Dairy Farm In Chennai which can be taken as progressive models.
