  • Description


    I have a farm in the beautiful Kanakpur village in Uttar Pradesh, India.
    My farm is right on the outskirts of the little village, most famous for its ancient temples.
    It's a lovely place to live if you like a relaxed approach to life with a focus on nature and simplicity.
    The town is small and laid back, with plenty of places to eat and all you need to get by but the best things about Varanasi are the surrounding countryside and the close community that live here. Varanasi has many things to do and see my village is 23 km from Varanasi city :)
