Since 2012 the couple have adopted a multi-tier, multi-crop, heterogeneous farming model with regenerative natural farming practices, with an aim to create a natural forest like ecosystem in farm and goal of building self-sustaining soil fertility and soil health. Providing pure, natural, tasty and wholesome organic vegetables, organic fruits, organic coffee, organic spices, chemical-free essential oils and organic pickles as healthy diet options at affordable cost to the society is their vision.

Sustainability is the key of all the activities on this certified organic farm. Coffee, pepper and cardamom are grown alongside a wide range of fruits, spices, medicinal and aromatics, native jungle trees as the upper tier, root crops, shrubs, vegetables and vines in the lower stratum and the livestock, birds and beneficial insects which co-exist along with these, constituting a complete functional ecosystem.
