A few words about The Farm
The Farm was started in 1974 and consists of a dairy (cows & water buffalo), a poultry (free-range chicken & turkey), horses, fields (rice, fodder & vegetables) and plantations (coconuts & eucalyptus). This is a dream combination of a farm and hospitality together, thereby allowing for alternative sources of income for the owners as well as allowing for more people to enjoy the space.
They currently run a restaurant that can seat 50 people and also a Bed & Breakfast for guests who would like to stay over and experience life on our farm. The restaurant on the farm is a thatch roof structure with cool green shade netting around the sides. Built within an existing coconut grove and with brick flooring, this structure gives their guests the feeling of being outdoors while having the comforts of indoor dining.
The guests who frequent The Farm include – families on a get-away, business people over for team lunches, school children on field trips, overseas travelers looking for a new experience – there’s something for everyone here. The Farm is a perfect setting for a quiet meal, a corporate event or a party with a difference.
The Bed & Breakfast that currently comprises of 8 homely rooms are a great weekend get-away from the city. Long-term stays are also offered to Business travelers who would like a different experience from that of a regular Hotel or Service Apartment.
