Talking Trees is a working farm that strives to conserve and nurture the biodiversity of our surrounding environs, set on the banks of the Panamaram River in Wayanad, Kerala, about 10 kilometres from Kuruva Island. The property is skirted by lush paddy fields and plantations, with a lazy village backdrop offering you scenic routes for leisurely strolls, cycling, and photo opportunities. The hosts stay on site, and offer you the warmth of a homestay, far in spirit from a typical commercial resort. We plant trees, and grow our own vegetables and fruits, besides housing a modest number of farm animals. Produce, animal- and plant-based, is either home-grown or locally sourced, entirely free of chemicals, a rarity these days. Talking Trees is your getaway from the daily grind, and an off-beat alternative to run-of-the-mill establishments. Get ready for personal attention, great South Indian food and awesome local stories. Enjoy your stay!

Wholesome meals are prepared from seasonal produce sourced locally or grown in our organic farm. A variety of the freshest local fare can be found on the table, and you can take full advantage of seasonal, home-cooked specialities at meal time. In addition to the common terrace area – with books, seating areas and numerous indoor games – there are lots of spaces to unwind, including a common basement area for each pair of cottages. Bamboo rafting, coracle rides, bicycles, yoga classes, meditation sessions, Ayurvedic treatments and more are available on request, but yes, WiFi is also available if you prefer surfing the internet.

Between all the coconut, bamboo, mango, jackfruit, and cashew trees, you’ll also find secluded hammocks and swings, ready to help you withdraw into nature’s lap. Open areas and sumptuous grass ensure a safe playground for children, while interacting with farm animals let them connect with nature. A quick dip in the river and a walk across the paddy fields, enjoying the serenity and the crisp morning air can do wonders for your well-being.

Maybe it’s the healthy Wayanad weather, the serene river or the lovely green foliage, there is always a lingering blend of cheerfulness in the air, making it the perfect getaway for the curious traveller, a romantic getaway, a weekend with the kids or an outing with friends and family.
