Meera produces an excellent, wide range of Fruit Cordials, Jams, Jellies, Marmalades and Pickles, made from fruit and vegetables organically grown at Silver Oak Farm.
Local sight-seeing attractions and exciting activities:
Ask Praveen to help you with how to make the best use of your time. You can visit the Village Pottery unit and try your hand at the Potter's Wheel; or surprise yourself with what you will see at the Silk Reeling unit, both of which are open only forenoon.
The other eye-opener is the Bhoganadishwara Temple at Nandi Village, which you can visit any time of the day.
Starting from our Farm, you can take yourself on one of the most scenic treks, going up Nandi Hills. Within the Farm itself, take a walk into our Organic Garden where we grow a variety of fruits and vegetables.
Between 10:30 and 11am, by prior appointment, Praveen will be happy to show you our Aquaponic Cultivation Unit.
What is there for Children? Apart from the Village Pottery and the Silk reeling unit, they will love the scenic walk up Nandi Hills, the walk into our Organic Garden as well as the Aquaponic Cultivation Unit. Just the openness of the space and clean fresh air does wonders for them. They will be in good company of our dogs who love children and will enjoy making friends with 'Torty', our pet Tortoise. Many of them spend a lot of time on our Black Board with coloured chalk.
After you arrive, we may have more suggestions about some other interesting current events or attractions from time to time.
As you can see there is plenty of scope for a very exciting time on our Day visits. So make that call to Praveen on +91 98456 52267 to discuss your Day Visit with him.
