Hello, Our farm is a family owned river side farm in a small village in Mangalore. My grandfather came and set up this place about 70 years ago and since then we have diversified what grows on the farm. We are a family of four, the twins are 8 years old. We have recently built a CSEB tiny house and are in the process of setting up our farm business. We have cocoa, coconut, arecanut, pepper, and many fruit trees growing here.
While we believe in natural farming, we at times need to invest some labour in the upkeep of the farm, hence we occasionally hire local farm labourers.

Our family is Avin, my husband, I Jeune and our 8 year old 'never been to school' kids. We live a laid back simple life. The motto being enjoy each day as it comes.
For a few days, live with us a life of simple pleasures of eating wholesome food, making your own personal care products, pickles, jams, kombucha. Learn the art of foraging, explore the fauna of the Malabar region of India.
We live in a tiny mud house, if you are interested in ecological constructions and plan to build a Eco house... we have a lot to share. Avin and I have ourselves set up the solar setup of our home which is mostly DC powered, hence power and cost effective. How? Come and see.
We are a unschooling family. Your presence will be like a text book for our kids, please share about your life, travels, and learning.
Our farm has a cocoa plantation - you can learn cocoa processing from the harvesting to storing and the various products we make from them. Some homemade Cocoa Peanut Butter anyone?
We also live a life of no medicines, learn with us how to control, heal and avoid various health issues with nothing more than food.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We are currently in the process of setting up a farm business and need help with expanding our herb cultivation, cocoa processing, farm maintenance - activities like mulching, setting up vegetable beds, making saplings, seed harvesting+tagging and set up a portal to sell farm produce.
