We have a beautiful farm off in Palyae Village, Sindudurgh , Maharashtra in India. It is family owned . We are planting the entire property with cashew , pepper coconuts, and the like as long term crops.
We also grow short term crops like casava,banana,pineapple,ginger , turmeric on the farm.
The farm also has a small farm house that can house 4 people at a time cmfortably.
The farm is flanked by the villages of Palyae and Sonaival and is a beautifull place on earth and with great possibilities for farming and agro tourism that once implemented would provide employment and work opportunities to communities that live round our area and therby help us to give back to society in a way.
DIY and building projects
Help with Eco Projects
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
The travellers apart from helping out on the farm would be able to visit the villages around our area and undestand the challenges faced by those who live in villages in India.
The contribution made by the travelers on our farm will help the villagers living around us to learn from the activities on our farm , thereby helping them to learn and implement sustainable farming operations for themselves and thereby contributing to the micro economics of farming in India.
There is wild life within the property and there is a forest that runs along our boudaries.
Jungle treks , river rafting , hang gliding , mountain biking , dirt biking etc are possibilities for the travellers who visit us.
Travellers would be ble to get the real feel of village life and the peace and quite it offers.
We are looking at how travellers from round the globe could visit and stay with us and manage the daily work with the workers on the farm by helping them, guiding them and teaching them inovative methods of eco farming that are sustainable on one hand and on the other hand we are looking at expertise from people who could help us build mud houses or stone cottages from locally available material in order to promote eco tourism that would benefit the development of villages around our area.
