Overall, my stay at the farmwas a wonderful experience. The host, Poobala, is so kind and accommodating. He went out of his way to make sure that I had a comfortable enjoyable stay and even showed me around the local area. I would highly recommend this to any traveler who wants to experience a very the farmlifestyle.

Thank you for sharing. Our space. We shall surely meet someday.. All the best wishes for you for your travel.



The farmFarms is not just some piece of land but rather a beautiful piece of intricate Creation. Poobala has nurtured this place with so much love and care that I could feel the same in the entire atmosphere. The patience that he has carried within him all these years is breathtaking. I felt so close to Nature and Poobala also reminded me how important trees and plants were in our lives. I loved cutting corn as fodder for the cow and helped in cooking as well. The conversations with the local people were very interesting as I tried a few Kannada words. I learnt waste management as well.

My first experience in India. I was culture shocked. Things settled for me thanks to the openness of Poobala, Sono and Aunti: teaching me how to wash my own clothes, cooking my home recipe and Poobala driving me around on his vintage motor visiting tempels and trying local food! Go with no expectations and keep your heart open. Communicate about working hours and tasks. Next to photography I helped with daily tasks like cleaning, gardening, cooking. This place is open for your creative ideas as well.

Pobala is an amazing host. The idea behind his the farmis to maintain and live on the basis of sustainability and also protect the environment while learning a lot of things from it. Definitely coming back again very soon. And do not expect any kind of luxury when you are here. Get in touch with nature and let yourself go with the flow. Mr. Pobala will guide you in what your duties are and what needs to be done. Cook him great food I would recommend 😋 or help him out with farming. But still the best place to be inthethethe farm. I gave up the city after staying here. Thank you so much Poo. See you

Thank you for taking time to leave a review



This the farmis a set in a picturesque, incredible location with a lake nearby, waterfall (during monsoon), and other hikes all around. Poobala is creating a great the farmwith many exotic plants and herbs and trees, and also striving to preserve and protect some of the local species. We were there for the very start of monsoon so we got to help transition from summer by clearing land for some of the seasonal plants. Most of the food prepared also came directly from the gardens and it was incredible. This was really a wonderful, calm, go-at-your-own-pace place and we will come back to visit!
