Who doesn’t like Mangosteens? We sure do! It reminds us of the good old summer holidays where you’d share it with your cousin gang and family and just enjoy the taste of Mangosteens together. It is even better when it is sourced from the so-called land of Mangosteens - Burliar. Check out Spice Hill Farms located in Burliar, a small hill station in the Nilgiri region. Started by Karthik, Varun, and Shruti, Spice Hill Farms specialises in seasonal produce like Mangosteens, Pomelos, Durian, and White Grapefruit. It is stated by Shruti that the Mangosteen trees are over 50 years old and are produced organically with the help of local farmers.
It is a family-owned farm that is spread across 200 acres in Burliar. Apart from seasonal fruits, they also specialise in harvesting and growing spices such as pepper, nutmeg, cloves, mace, and whole bay leaf starting at INR 50. Looking for wild honey? They’ve got you covered. You can now buy wild honey at INR 300 for 150 ML. Get home some Sambrani or Benzoin which is generally used as home incense with medicinal properties at INR 100 for 50 grams. They currently deliver only to Chennai but are looking to expand their logistical service to various cities across the country. If you have a bulk requirement, they do ship but only upon request. You can ping them on Instagram and place your orders with them for fresh batches of seasonal produce.
