Going green is not about green acts, it’s about living a healthy life, surrounded by nature and purity.
Our life is becoming chemical in all ways possible. There is nothing pure or organic in the kind of lifestyle we live. No doubt, we keep craving for the holiday, a chance to move out of the toxicity we live in.
From the food we eat, to the water to drink to the air we breathe, there is a lack of purity in anything and everything around us. This leads us to find ways and means to be organic and naturally connected.
With the same thought, I visited Arwa Farm in Dahanu, Arwa stands for Pure, no wonder the place was the epitome of purity. Its just 2.5 hours drive away from Mumbai, or just 20 mins drive away from Dahanu Railway Station.
The Farm is fully organic with everything made of mud or wooden or items which are naturally biodegradable. The raw and rustic look and feel of the farm makes it beautiful and comforting. There are rooms with single beds and couple rooms, depending on your comfort you can find your stay.
At the entrance, there is a place to sit and chill, artistic and homely for sure. There is also a swing, which was my favorite corner for sure. On entering, you have rooms on the right and the kitchen on the left. (Their organic food is rare and delicious for sure). Then, there is a stair that leads you to more rooms on your left and a mini terrace on the right. The terrace is perfect to spend your evening at.
7 acres of the farmland, brings greenery all around. The view from each and every window or corner leads to greenery. There are more than 740 trees of different varieties, some of which I saw for the very first time. From Dragon fruits, to Tulsi, lemon leaves, stevia, lemongrass, Custard Apple, and Mangoes. Everything is naturally grown here and is free from chemicals. The taste, flavor, and purity of the food you eat there is un-matchable. At Arwa farm, you will gain insights on how organic food is grown and harvested, before it reaches your dining table
There are no chemical or pesticides used, even the manure is created at the farm and is known as Amrit Paani, which is made from everything natural like cow dung, cow urine, mud etc
We have organic breakfast, which comprised of roti’s made from rice and aloo, which were all naturally grown there. Even for lunch, we have moong and tur daal, Bhindi, pickle, and rice (it wasn’t polished or chemically treated, all raw and in its natural form). They serve what is grown and available at that time of the year.
Enjoy the silence, breathe natural air, connect with your soul and see greenery all around. Arwa farm is perfect to unplug yourself from the mundane.
