Two large ponds are filled with rainwater, which is excellent for swimming. The highlight of the stay here is the homely food prepared by 90-year-old Lakshmi Paati and her daughter, 71-year-old Kasthuri Ammal.

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.

Our stay at the Vaksana Farm, Tindivanam, was such a sweet and memorable one. We stayed at PICO house which was extremely clean and had everything that we needed during the stay. The food prepared by Kasthuri paati was delicious. Coffee, tea were served with freshly-made snacks. The farm was serene, calm and well-maintained. Mr.Kiruba guided us around the farm and shared with us about life at the farm. He had arranged for tree planting on the occasion of our dog's birthday which was such a surprise and so thoughtful. My sister and myself planted a badam tree sampling on our own in front of one of the houses at the farm which was a special memory. There's a natural pond at the farm which is safe to swim and they even had rubber tubes and ropes for the safety of amateurs. Taking a shower at the outdoor showers at PICO was an amazing experience. Everyone at the farm were kind and helpful. Our family had a comfortable stay and the time we spent at the farm was relaxing, as well as exciting. Highly appreciate the effort and hospitality of the people at the Vaksana farm. Highly recommended.

I chose Vaksana to celebrate my dog’s 8th birthday and couldn’t have found a better place. Vaksana Farmstay is a beautiful property which is taken care by a loving family. We had a great time exploring the farm, being around all the animals. Many thanks to Lakshmi paati and Kasthuri paati for all the yummy food. Special thanks to Kiruba for giving us a chance to plant a sapling in the farm, a memory which will always be very close to our heart. Highly recommend Vaksana farmstay, looking forward to visiting again.

We had a great time at Pico in Vaksana farms. Pico is very well designed with a lot of space and light (the beds were super comfortable as well). The home cooked food made with love by the two grandmas running the farm was a highlight. It was delicious and you can sense the care that has gone into making the food. The other highlights of our trip was playing with the animals, milking the cows, helpful people all around and planting a sapling in the farm which we hope to go back and visit in the future. Overall the entire trip was de-stressing, full of fresh air and going back to a simpler life. For all the people who work from home, this place has insane WiFi as well.
