Along with some home grown vegetables and fruits, you can enjoy bread fresh from our ovens and home-made jams, preserves and relishes.
 
Finish your meal with a steaming cup of hand-picked Arabica/Robusta coffee beans from the estate, roasted and ground to perfection. Garden fresh tea with a dash of milk or high grown teas with a twist of lemon are also great ways to end a sumptuous meal.
 
The plantation originated in the late 1800’s and has changed hands over the years and in 1994, was bought by the current owners - Messrs.Aswati Plantations Ltd.
