Welcome to your home away from home!

Vaksana Farms is a 13-acre natural, organic permaculture farm located in a beautiful, remote, picture-postcard village.

Two large ponds are filled with rainwater, which is excellent for swimming.

At 89 & 71, Amazing Grandmas Run a Gorgeous, Successful Farm Stay With Fresh Food

An enchanting farm stay in Tamil Nadu called Pico is run by two senior citizens — Laxmi and Kasthuri. With organic farm fresh vegetables, they also offer modern amenities like WiFi.

For several years, Laxmi Ammal and Kasthuri Sivaraman (a mother-daughter duo) lacked the confidence of being independent. Both of them grew up in conservative households where they did everything their parents told them to do.

There, women were not encouraged to think independently and to a certain extent discouraged from expressing their opinions. Moreover, while Laxmi (89) studied only till Class 3, Kasthuri (71) completed Class 7 in a Tamil-medium school. After marriage, they followed their husbands’ orders.

It can be daunting for some to make decisions and take action when they are habituated to getting directions from others.

My husband and few of my friends had a two day stay at Vaksana farms. We stayed at Pico which was very comfortable for all our needs. Vaksana is the perfect place for your weekend plans. The host Mr Kiruba and his parents were the sweetest. Shoutout to Kiruba Anna, His wife, Parents and Patti for showing us around and being great hosts. They were able to guide us around the farm and for any requirements outside the farm. Would definitely recommend to others.

Wonderful and peaceful stay.. food was served with pure love 💕 amazing hospitality which is not attained even in any resorts. Peace for mind and soul. Stayed only for a day because of the unavailability. Looking forward to go there again. 😉😉 Lastly meeting the grandmother and getting her blessings was tremendous. Felt really nice when she kept her hand on my son and gave him blessings to study well and grow. Hopefully her blessings come true. Very touching that was. ❤️
