About the experience

Looking to swap another weekend spent in the concrete jungle for an authentic farm experience surrounded by the picturesque sights and fresh air? Well, look no further,  Shoots and Roots- A Traditional Organic Farm is just the place you're looking for. Situated on the fringes of the Bilikal Forest on the south of Bannerghatta National Park, the rustic farm gives you a traditional farming experience. Put aside your laptop and cellphone, and experience the joys of growing and cultivating a farm.  

 Walk down pathways lined with silver oak and teak trees and pluck bananas, mangoes and lemons right of their branches. This 15-acre organic farm features a rural barn-style homestay fitted with simple modern amenities for comfort. You can take a tour of the farm to see how fruits and vegetables grow, learn about beekeeping, vermicomposting, rainwater harvesting, greywater filtering, crop rotation and more! 

 As the days are spent exploring the farmlands and lending your hand to the cultivation process, the evenings are ideal for some fun light sports around the farm followed by a tranquil night of stargazing away from the bright city lights.   If you’re interested in natural spaces and farming, visit this old-school homestay and strengthen your bonds with nature. This rustic farm invites you to drop by with your friends! As a bonus, you can bring your pet along too.

Visited on 25-Dec-23 Firstly the walk around the farm is super interesting. Now apart from Raghu, his son Satvik provides insightful guided tours. The food is simple village food but you end up having a hearty meal. A great learning and relaxing experience. One tip - go via kanapura road, avoid jigni anekal road. Service: 5 Location: 5

I recently booked a stay at a place that had rave reviews online, but the reality was quite different. Right from the start, the accommodation left much to be desired. The room was not maintained properly; it had cobwebs, a dusty side table, and the bedding seemed used. The kitchen area was in a similar state, hinting at a lack of hygiene. The caretaker, although polite and kind, unfortunately couldn’t make up for the subpar food that was both cold and tasteless. The farm tour, which I had looked forward to, was particularly underwhelming. It was advertised as an immersive experience with an abundance of fruit trees. However, it felt sparse and neglected, making one rely on sheer luck to find a ripe fruit. The meals overall were a disappointment. They were served lukewarm and lacked the fresh farm-to-table experience I was expecting. There was a pottery session, which was somewhat enjoyable, but it felt more like an attempt to compensate for the other lacking areas of the visit. To top it off, the owner's approach felt unwelcoming. Considering the time and effort spent driving to this place, coupled with the expense, the experience was disheartening. It's hard to reconcile the disparity between the online praise and the actual state of the farm. The visit, in all honesty, felt like a missed opportunity for a genuinely refreshing getaway.
