  • Beschreibung


    At the moment, we are caring for 27 native breed cows on our farm and doing natural organic farming. Our farm has been granted a scope (probationary period) organic farming certificate by the Government of Tamilnadu, which is issued to organic farms in the initial three years of certification. On our 10.5 acres of land, we have planted around 1000 saplings, fruit trees, timber trees, medicinal trees, and more. Interested Workawayers are invited to come to our farm to learn about natural farming through hands-on experience. We gladly provide accommodation and food for our volunteers.
