“This is not a luxury resort”, is the first thing you are told when you go booking a visit to Green Acres. An organic farm, located just 70 kms away from the city of Hyderabad, Green Acres is not just amongst the few eco-tourism sites in the state but also a relaxed setting for a weekend getaway.
Green Acres has been turned into a lush green farm from a barren piece of land through Agroforestry and Organic Farming. It offers rustic and simplistic setting where you can have a close interaction with the environment and spend some time away from the hustle bustle of cities. In fact this is what drew us to the farm. The idea of being close to nature without even creating any harm to the same.
The best aspect about Green Acres is that it helps visitors in having an eco-friendly vacation. This is what we drew us to the farm.
As we reached Green Acres, we were greeted with warm smiles of helpers as well as enthusiasm of Simba, the dog at the farm. Moving further into the farm, we could hear chirping of birds and wild noises of insects. More than any of these, what took our breath away was the sight of open space with dense greenery and no building or vehicle to disrupt that mesmerising view!
The sunset at the farm is also worth capturing. It will be a good idea to take a nature walk amidst the greenery of farm as you wake to the birds chirping and soothing sun rays. Along with nature walks, there are options for various other outdoor activities as well.
Camping at the farm is also an experience worth remembering. The controlled environment offered at Green Acres made it easier for many of us who were first time campers.
And yes, not to forget the delicious dinner we had at the farm. The meal was cooked from the vegetables and crops grown organically at the farm, which you can easily differentiate from the richness of the taste.
So this was our one night stay at the farm in brief. We will share details of our stay in posts yet to come!
