About the owners

This farm is the love child of a couple Sudhi and Ashwini, a civil engineer and architect, who have made Talakadu their home. They have distanced themselves from their hectic professions and now lead a quiet life in their beautiful courtyard house (Thotti Mane) on the farm.

They are passionate about travel, yoga, photography and music. They are also experimenting a self-sustaining model of living whereby the crops that are grown on the farm, the fruit trees that are planted, the organic vegetables that are grown, the cows that are reared, the waste that is generated for organic manure, each fuse into the other to propel a living that is at once simple, organic and healthy.

They have built a small rustic temple of Lord Dakshinamurthy which is accessible to the guests to pray and meditate.

They have opened the doors to their farm for like-minded people to revel in quietness and solitude and for those who wish to bask in the pastoral environs of nature.

About the farm

Cradled in the heartland of the historic temple town of Talakadu, Mysore (eponymous with Pancha linga darshana), lies a surprise of a getaway in a sprawling 8 acre mango farm, aptly called Mango Mulch.

Tucked away in a serene world of its own, nestled amidst lush verdant fields of sugarcane, ragi, vegetables and even bursts of marigold on one end to the majestic Cauvery river flowing on the other, this quiet getaway provides the much needed balm for a tranquil and relaxing weekend by the countryside.

This quintessential farm boasts of 5 gigantic 100yr old mango trees, the canopy of which covers half an acre! Also laden with 100 mango trees spread across the land, enveloping 3 lovely rustic cottages, the farm beckons one into a serene world, where one can meditate and energize oneself with yoga and silence.
