The Butterfly Garden

No Enclosures . The butterflies are out in the open . The way natures intends them to be.

With a careful selection of plants on which they need to feed and breed ,butterflies are naturally attracted to the place .

A word of caution : Not always !! They are missing during cloudy, rainy or gloomy days , middle of the noon and certain times of the year.

Best time to spot butterflies is between 9:00 am to 12 noon . Best time of the year is between August to November. Remember we have no control on how many of them can be spotted or when . They are masters of their own will​

The Spice Garden

No monocultures . No pesticides .

No chemical fertilizers . No organised rows.

Quite unlike a traditional large spice farms , ours is a small ,modern land holding where we have tried natural farming techniques -Miyawaki Style. But you will be able to see a wide variety of spice plants like Cinnamon , Clove, Cardamom , Pepper , turmeric , Ginger , Nutmeg , Coffee , All spice , Kokum , Curry leaves , vanilla .

Most of the spice plants are young and you are able to see a spice farm being born .
