Expedition Overview
If restlessness is your disease then travel is the cure. This is a journey to a place of supreme beauty and comfort designed to rest and nourish the soul. The Organic Farm has a rich history and is located in the lush green expanses of south India's Malabar Coast. While most of our trips focus directly on wildlife conservation, this experience explores a related but much more human element of naturalistic depth, by exploring our own relationship to the earth.

Explore the stunning scenery of wild jungle and heritage agro forestry plantation with photographer and visual artist Nikita Skariah. Nikita specialized in a fusion of traditional Indian art styles blended with psychedelic modernism with an emphasis on nature. She will also be leading nightwalks in search of wildlife including frogs, snakes, lizards, bats, birds, and the reclusive civets that call Varanashi farms home.

We are inviting you to come to a heritage farm where sustainable living, warmth, wildlife, culture and peace have come together in a rare and beautiful sanctuary. At Organic Farm living in symbiosis with the earth is not a distant dream, but a simple fact of life. Let the abundant bird life welcome you as sunrays spoke through the towering palms. Let delicious food, straight from the land inspire your tastebuds. Swim in the clear water, surf in the warm waves, and explore India not as a tourist, but as a friend of the family. This is a chance to improve mind, body and spirit, and relax and recuperate while pushing your limits, and learning things about your relationship to the earth as well as your own body and mind.

The Organic Farm extends for over 100 Acres, with countless trails and numerous irrigation ponds, as well as a river. Crop plantations are maintained within the natural vegetation of the area, and 60% of the farms is still untouched forest. Crops like Arecanut, Coconut, Cocoa, Nutmeg, Banana, Black Pepper, Jackfruit etc. are grown in a multi-story system. In addition, different types of vegetables, fruits, flowers are also grown. Rice is organically cultivated during the rainy season for sale and our own consumption.

Along with sustainable farming and living, comes a focus on fitness. Yoga in the mornings. Surfing lessons on our gentle waves, tree climbing, ample trails, and expert level physical training for every fitness level are part of the daily routine. This is a trip about fun, adventure, and the true art of living. The people, beauty, lessons and depth you experience here will stay with you the rest of your life.
