An ideal getaway from Bangalore, you can visit Rare Earth Farm for either a day out with the family or for a weekend staycation with extended family, friends or colleagues. Off Kaggalipura Town, near Kanakapura, the fully live and working farm is spread across eight acres of land and has three rooms, ideal for about nine to ten adults.
In keeping with the eco-friendly theme of the farm, you can stay in mud cottages. Everything in the room, from the mud walls to the aesthetic decor including the bamboo sticks and beer bottles wall pieces are all made from recycled natural farm waste. Our favourite part of the cottages is that each bathroom and shower is in an open garden area and open to the big blue sky. Time to have the midnight shower you’ve always dreamed of!
All meals are provided by Rare Earth Farm. Of course, it’s all freshly made with ingredients from their organic farm. Perfect to get that farm to fork experience. They also have a wood fire oven and a barbecue, and here’s a tip: do not miss out on their thin-crust pizzas with cheese made from the dairy farm. There’s plenty to do while you’re there. While they have a freshwater swimming pool, a huge library with plenty of books and indoor games, we suggest you walk around and soak in the fast vanishing agricultural landscape of Bangalore. Kids and animal lovers will love chilling with cows, buffaloes, rescued ponies, and birds when here.
