Tat Tvam Asi is a 25 acre family owned coffee estate located baba budangiri range in western ghats of india. Dattagiri Hills or Baba Budangiri Range is a range of mountains in the Western Ghats of Karnataka, India. The range, originally known as Chandra Drona Parvatha, takes its current name from the Dattapeeta Cave and 17th century Sufi saint Baba Budan. The Dattagiri or Baba Budan Giri Range includes the highest peaks of Karnataka. Unique mountain flowers called kurinji blooms in these hill ranges once every 12 years. The last time this spectacle happened was in 2006.The farm is located at a height of 1400 mts surrounded by shola forest and vast grasslands. We are in a highly eco endemic and sensitive zone and we endure to respect that. We have a lot of activities atthe farm as any farm would but especially since we are converting into organic. We follow traditional polyculture system of agriculture with permaculture principles at the heart of it. Our coffee is completely shade grown with out the use of any synthetic fertilisers or pesticide, so are our other crops. We Also cultivate small amounts of pepper and cardamom, jackfruit and pickle limes(dodali kai). Among our wild produce (completely grown in forest) bay leaf, wild pepper, kala jamun, coffee , kapi luwak. Apart from farming activities we also try and do our bit in reforestation , wild fire control, bio diversity conservation. Our Vision is inspired by Natural Farmer Masanobu Fukuoka method of farming. In His words " The ultimate goal of farming is not the growing of crops, but the cultivation and perfection of human beings.”
