Right from the time we started work at Chettimani, we wanted to grow food around there – its a very satisfying feeling to be a producer and not merely a consumer. Apart from the coffee, there’s little we have done by way of effort so far. This year, the hope is to change that, and grow some banana, and add more pepper vines, and maybe even some paddy.
Nature’s blessed the place with natural produce – and there’s jackfruit, butterfruit, kaipuli, guavas and a bunch of other stuff with no inputs from our end. It feels awesome to be part of such a fertile, green, productive place.
If any of you would like to come over and get involved in any farm related work, let us know. Its a joy we’d love to share.
