Organic Farm

Organic Farm

The organic farm in our estate is an eco-friendly environment which follows the intergrated farming system with free living animal husbandry and multiple crops. About 4 acres of land is allocated for cultivation. The rest of the land is sustainably used to cultivate economic crops such as tea, pepper, pineapple, rambuttan, nutmeg, cardamom and banana. Animal husbandry is done by taking the maximum use of the land and the waste of the cultivation is used as animal feed. The speciality in our farm is the re-cultivation of animal waste as compost fertilizer which reduces the cost of fertilizer and animal feeds.

During the early period in the Gurubeula estate most commonly tea has been cultivated. But it was not possible to obtain the maximum productivity of the estate. Due to the political situation that occurred in 1989, the old bunglow has been set on fire. When it was rebuilt, this organic farm based on the green-concept has been created in this magnificent estate due to the idea of Mr. Sathis Abeywickrama.

This unique feature of the plantation in Gurubeula estate is maintaining an environmentally friendly agriculture which maintains ecological balance between plants and animals by studying the natural, sustainable biological process in the rainforests. The forest plantation and free animal farm in the estate actually showcase the diversity of a natural forest.

Gurubeula estate is situated among the climatic zones of the wet zone, the dry zone and the intermediate-zone. And the crops have been cultivated to match those climatic zones. Most commonly tea has been cultivated to match all the three climatic zones. Pineapple has been cultivated to suit the dry climate and banana has been cultivated to suit the intermediate-zone climate. In addition annual crops such as nutmeg and seasonal crops such as cardamom have been cultivated following organic fertilizer and organic cultivation methods.

The hen eggs, quail eggs, guinea fowl eggs and liquid milk can be obtained from the stall in our estate. A dairy production house is maintained in the estate and as a social service, the milk farmers' milk cans are purchased at a higher price. By using the liquid milk, yoghurt, ice cream, milk toffee and curd are being produced.

The winning of the Presidential award for dairy products is confirmed the quality of our dairy products. When visiting our estate you can enjoy insecticides and pesticides-free agriculture and the relationship in the nature.
