DESCRIPTION

I always love being surrounded by nature and after working in the mining industry for a few years I decided to give back to my roots by running this organic farm in Cigombong along with 18 local people of whom most is my family. We put sustainability at the core of our management so it gives the impact directly to the locals.

I offer you the opportunity to escape from the busy city of Jakarta and treat yourself to a 2-day getaway at my organic farm in Cigombong. My farm is only 2-hours away from the city. Not only will you be surrounded by the lush green nature, you also will enjoy amazing farm to table food. From breakfast, lunch, snack, to a home cooked dinner.

During your farmstay, you will have the chance to join in various activities. You can explore the coffee plantation, tea plantation, go to the waterfall, walk through the rice terrace or even do a river trekking. You can also join mediation, yoga or other health-related activities or join in the farm tour and grow your own vegetables. We produce various vegetables like kale, pak choi, lettuce, carrots and fruits like lemon, durian, banana, and more.

While you're enjoying your time, our cook, Ibu War will prepare a great dinner; usually, we'll have traditional baked rice with fish (nasi bakar), traditional tofu (tahu), tempe, and vegetables.

Meet David & Usaha

We love being surrounded by nature and after working in the mining industry, I decided to give back to my roots by running this organic farm in Cigombong. Together with a local head farmer, Pak Usaha, we want to spread more awareness about the importance of growing our own food organically with the hope to inspire the younger generation to be more conscious of what they consume.


Location


I stayed at the farm in September 2017 with my family (a baby and a four-year old). The view was breathtaking and the premises were clean and the food tasted lovely and healthy. Everyone there were service-minded and did their utmost to make our stay as comfortable as possible. There was security at the gates and you could lock the rooms from inside, so we felt quite safe. Due to heavy rain we didn't get to see much for the area, including the sunrise and waterfall. I would recommend to check weatherforecast to get the most out of your visit. Also, if we had known that it was going to rain from 3:30pm, we would have started our tour much earlier despite the strong sun. The farmer said that there wasn't much to see at the rice and coffee plantations, so we just saw them from the top of a hill. At around 7pm in the evening, there was an insect "invasion" due to heavy rain, but it was only a kind of plant insect and not harmful. However, it was impossible to walk outside the rooms until both rain and insects were gone. All in all, the view, food and hospitability were great! Unfortunately, the owner wasn't there to welcome us, but Pak Billy was at our disposal all the time. If the owner gives him a presentation of the premises in writing which he can memorize in English, it would be more useful for the tours! P.s. I think the organic farm had great potential, and if the farmer puts more effort into the presentation and tidies up it will be better.

As someone who lives in Jakarta, it was wonderful to be able to spend some time away from the city. Staying at this farm really left a lasting impression on me, especially because of the local people that work there, most of them are family and treated me very well. The accommodation is comfortable, food was amazing! David and Usaha are such great hosts and really want to educate their guests about the importance of taking care of our nature and share with you valuable insights about organic farming and food industry. I'll highly recommend you to visit this farm if you're staying in Jakarta for a couple of days.
