Wondering what eco-farming and agritourism hype is all about?
At Tara Watergate hotel, we give the agricultural experience of a farmer’s life, along with traditional harvesting and cultivating in our organic farms. For example, there is a rice field, we grow peanuts, mung beans (a.k.a. green gram), chillies, coconut, jack fruit, mango, passion fruit and much more. Some of these veggies and fruits are seasonal, however, we harvest throughout the year. In Sri Lanka, cultivation is divided into two main seasons; namely, Yala.
