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.
As an urban dweller growing up, I've known how crucial it is to escape from the hustle and bustle of the city every once in a while. Therefore I would love to invite you for a day trip experience at our organic farm, just 2-hours away from Jakarta.
If you arrive by train, we will pick you up and take you to our farm. You will be warmly welcomed a heavenly coconut drink! Our local head farmer, Pak Usaha will then show you around on the farm and give an introduction on the process of organic farming. You will see the variety of vegetables that we produce from kale, pak choi, lettuce, carrots and fruits like lemon, durian, banana, to tea and coffee.
After this farm introduction we will go for a hike to the jungle and spend some time at the refreshing waterfall. In the mean time our cook, Ibu War, will prepare a delicious organic lunch; corn fritters, traditional Sundanese salad, omelet, fresh veggies, and gado-gado.
After lunch, you have the chance to join Pak Usaha to the coffee and tea plantation or you can just chill at our open air lounge area overlooking Mount Gede before the day trip ends.
Notes: Make sure you bring extra cash since we also run our organic shop that sells various kind of vegetables, tea, coffee, and fruits. By buying ingredients from our farm, you also support the families of farmers that work with us.
