Spread across 687 acres of greens, and with an annual production turnover of 600 MT worth of organic produce India’s largest integrated organic farm-the Hathikuli tea estate is situated in the periphery of the Kaziranga National park-a UNESCO world heritage site. To help protect this fragile ecosystem and all the creatures big and small, we made our tea estate fully organic by 2011. So instead of chemical fertilizers we use vermi-compost and instead of dangerous pesticides we let nature create its own predators of pests. Hathikuli, which means “frequented by elephants” in Assamese, ensures that the tea we produce is as safe and pure for the consumer as it is for all the organisms that thrive there, from the micro-organisms to the elephants.
Spread over a vast 430 Sq. Km., this UNESCO, World heritage Site, is situated in the state of Assam. The park hosts two-thirds of the world’s great one-horned rhinoceroses. Kaziranga boasts the highest density of tigers among protected areas in the world and was declared a Tiger Reserve in 2006. The park is home to large breeding populations of elephants, wild water buffalo, swamp deer, hog deer, gaur, sambar, Indian muntjac and many more. Kaziranga is recognized as an Important Bird Area by Birdlife International for conservation of avifaunal species. Compared to other protected areas in India, Kaziranga has achieved notable success in wildlife conservation.
