The land had been agricultural land for generations but had been not cultivated for almost 25 years till 2004. The Land was barren and developed for agriculture again from 2004. The farm followed Organic practices from the beginning. As the culture of Chemical farming was not there, it had been easier to develop into Organic Farming. The farm is well irrigated and almost the entire area is under Drip Irrigation. The farm is bound by a Vadavalli-Pachanur Pallam in the South and West.
