Mango Weekends, A Summer Staycation

Come spend your summer weekends at a mango orchard!

About Our Orchard

An ultra-private mango orchard in Andhra Pradesh, India, skirting a reserve forest at the foot of a hill with lakes nearby. Surrounded by shrub forests endowed with over a 100 species of birds and animals.
With a growing area of nearly 50 acres we also grow coconut, teak, badam, neem and a few other fruit trees that are native to the land. We are a part of the SEZ ( special economic zone) of mango growers with a GI (geographical indication) tagged banganapalli being one of our main varieties.


This summer, while we harvest our mangoes, we invite you to experience the main event of the year in our farm with us. Is it going to be hot? Oh yes! Mangoes love the summers and the hot sun, and we love the mangoes. So, with vast expanses of greenery, juicy mangoes drooping from trees, and a fresh water lake to jump in, join us in celebrating the summer. 

We grow over a dozen varieties of mangoes - Banganapalli/ Benesha, Totapuri, Rumani, Sindhura, Neelam and a few lesser known native varieties.

We'd like to share everything mango with you! its the season where our local cuisine is brimming with the flavours of mango, we would like you to indulge in some of the recipes we have picked up in our travels across the world, reinventing mango salads, pickles, mango juices, smoothies, aam panna variations basically everything with a bit of mango magic! and above all mango deserts which we can never get enough of. 

We're opening our farm from the 9th of june to 10th july!
