Whether by milking a goat, ploughing a field, harvesting rice, learning a few Warli strokes, watching fireflies, or by simply sleeping under the stars, our rural tourism initiative not just gives you a taste of life on the other side of the farm hedge; it also aims at creating a sustainable eco-system that provides alternate sources of income for villagers without straining their existing resources.
While we have taken utmost care of your comfort and safety, but having said that, many things influenced by nature is not under our control. We regularly perform pest control in the huts and entire Farm but sometimes there are insects because of the natural ingredients such as mud and straws. Also because the farm covers a large piece of land, hundreds of acres of agricultural soil nearby, rodents, snakes, wasps, etc are common features. So if you see any insect or rodent, do not panic. Inform anyone from the service staff and we would take care of it on immediate basis.
We request all our guests to read our Farm Guide once. Some rules are mandatory to follow, while other depend on your comfortability level with the village life.
Some Dos and Don’ts
- While packing for a stay at the farm, you may carry:
- Mosquito repellant
- A torch (with extra batteries)
- Sensible walking shoes
- Cap, stole or some other form of head protection
- Bring appropriate attire, to suit the climate, and to prevent triggering a culture shock.
- Pack your bags with environmentally friendly things. Carry as little plastic as possible.
- Do not leave behind any non-biodegradable waste. Carry batteries and other toxic waste back to the cities where waste management is in place.
- What you wear has an impact – environmentally and culturally – dress ethically and appropriately.
- Respect the local culture and refrain from physical intimacy in public places.
- Carry a good water bottle. Pure water dug from the earth is available at the farm for re-filling your bottles. Refrain from buying numerous plastic mineral water bottles.
- Local food is great. Try it as much as possible and avoid packaged food. Ask for modifications in the food according to your taste, instead of wasting it.
- Avoid excessive consumption of alcohol and refrain from drugs.
- Seek permission before photographing people, so their privacy is respected.
Your visit to farm or sports activities whether outdoor or indoor including obstacle course and ATV’s (coming soon) has some risk attached to it. Your visit and participation in any of the activities is at your own risk.

Natural calamities or unforeseen circumstances are not in our hand and we cannot be held responsible for any injury that might happen to any guest while their stay with us.
