In a rural village in Matale, your planter host will teach you about the trees, crops and local-style of cooking as you journey around the farm.
The Sri Lankan garden is actually a particularly picturesque farm spread over 15 and a half acres towards the top of a mountain so that it boasts incredible views of the Aluvihare Mountains. You are greeted by your host with farm sourced fresh juice and taken on a guided walk where you can learn about the garden’s collection of Sri Lankan produce, from pepper to papaya, cocoa to coconut and mango to mahogany. After observing these crops growing, enjoy the fruits of the planters’ labour with a traditionally prepared rice and curry lunch.
