Enjoying A Ride Through The Backwaters On The Local Vallam
Vini’s Farm isn’t any ordinary farm. It is a gorgeous piece of land nestled amid the backwaters of Kerala that offers a dreamlike romantic hideout and a perfect escape in seclusion. While the tranquillity of the island is enough to soothe the soul, there’s actually much more beyond the island to experience here. Not only the visitors can feast their eyes on the backwaters, they can also bathe in warm hues during the sunset by taking a ride on the country boat or vallam. The breeze, the colours of the evening and the smell of nature can literally heal all sorts of stresses. The guests can also take a walk through the farm along with one of the farm members and learn about different farming techniques like toddy tapping.
Fishing And Birdwatching
At Vini’s Farm, there are fishing rods available to give stayers the hang of traditional fishing. There is a fishing technique called cormorants fishing that is used here, in which fishermen use trained cormorants to fish. And those who love watching birds might end up spotting some beautiful bird species here like cormorants, pheasants, teals, woodpeckers and kingfishers.
Organic Food, Traditional Cooking And Waste Recycling
The island offers home-style comfort food, straight out of the farm. Also, if someone has got a fascination for cooking can try hands on the local cuisine by asking for a cooking class from the chef. The island belives in sustainability and thus recycles natural waste by creating vermicompost with it, which, in turn, is used to grow vegetables organically.
Also, the farm authorities have planted mangrove trees to check soil erosion and preserve marine life. Thus, on this island, you not only live within the nature, you also live for the nature, in complete unison with the pristine surroundings.
