Garden-fresh organic veggies.

Villa Botani operates its own farm, where more than an acre is used to grow organic vegetables. The vegetables include year-round carrots, corn, chayote, yard-long and string beans and green spinach, arugula [rocket] and Chinese leafy vegetables (secim & pak coy). Depending on the season, we also harvest tomato, spring onions, mixed salad, baby corn, peanuts, Medan eggplants, cassava and cassava leaves and more. These days some organic rice is also grown.

Farming is done by Pak Haji Agus, who hails from Cipanas, a famous vegetable-growing area in the Puncak.Since 2011 he has operated on a sharecropping basis, with most of the profit going to him after covering the costs of compost, seed and hired labor. We use little mechanical equipment and loads of hand work by locals. Pak Haji takes pride in the vegetables produced.
