Set in the heart of the serene Cumbum Valley, Harvest Fresh Farms is flanked by mountains that kiss the clouds with streams gushing down its slopes and lush farmlands. A short 15 minute drive down the windward side of Kumily, Thekkady, Kerala, the farm is strategically located at Lower Camp, in communion with pristine nature yet close to small towns and the famous Periyar Tiger Reserve. A charming bullock cart ride takes the visitor to the organic farm that grows pomegranates as it chief harvest along with papaya, grapes and an apiary that produces the finest honey. The farm is also home to cows, geese, turkey, flying ducks and a flock of hens. A well laid out vegetable garden and a herbal garden ensures that there is fresh produce at all times in the kitchens. Freshly picked vegetables & fruit find their way into the sumptuous local style dishes prepared by the staff. Ingredients that are not grown on the farm are procured from the nearby Cumbum market, a farmers market where the valley’s farmers bring their daily harvest and retail at government regulated fair prices.More
We really enjoyed our stay at Harvest fresh Farms. The stay was comfortable, food was delicious and the hospitality very warm. It was an insight to the ways of organic farming in India.
