The Organic Farm and Traditonal Farming

The farm in the past was coffee, cacao, and land of grass for the cow. Most of the big tree (now is still exist) has been there before we turn it into vegetables garden. We keep doing the traditional permaculture to grow and build the farm as our past generation did. How the past generation working with the nature rather than against it.

The Staff and Community Working Together

The communalism (called: “Banjar”) is one of the most important aspect of Balinese life, not just about the social life, customs and administration, but also the aspect of the local economy. Through this cooking program now we give the opportunity for 16 local villagers working on the site with us all through the year. Hopefully it’ll growing even more in the future.

Utilizing The Local Produce

Yes! we are supporting the “locavore – the local food movement”, We tried as much as possible to use the local produce from the village for instant; coconut oil, palm sugar (and syrup), most of the root spices and herbs. Although it’s not big place but we try as much as possible to helps the local farmers to sell their produces.
