Doctors Farm, Kolad

Kolad, on the Mumbai-Goa highway

Doctors Farm, Kolad
 

“DOCTOR’S FARM” is situated on the banks of the river KUNDALIKA and is about 15 acres (Roughly 6,50,000 sq ft.) , in extent. Almost 1500 feet of the land abuts the river. The panoramic view of the river extends to about 7 kms. Situated as it is, between the BHIRA DAM and the KOLAD DAM , the waters of the KUNDALIKA,are very tranquil and Peaceful. “DOCTOR’S FARM” being ensconced between thickly forested hills all around, can thus qualify to be a Nature lover’s Paradise. It is certainly not a place of luxury. It is basically a farmhouse, and should not be misconstrued as a resort. Basic amenities are certainly provided, but no luxuries can be expected.

NATURE : “DOCTOR’S FARM” being situated in a sparsely populated area,devoid of Industrialisation and unscrupulous Commercialisation has the added advantage of literally being in The lap of nature. The wide variety of birds and animals enriching the farm, by their presence, is nothing short of amazing - That too, a mere 2 ½ hour’s drive from one of the most polluted cities of the world i.e. Mumbai. The birds sighted at the farm and its environs are Fish Kite , Vulture, Owl, Kingfisher, Peacock , Hornbill , Woodpecker , Bee-Eater, Drongo, Bulbul, Hawk, Egrets, Parrots, Mynahs, Wild Fowl, Wild Ducks, Tailor Birds, Weaver Birds, Bats, Scissor Tails, apart from, of course, Crows and Ravens. Amazingly, migratory ducks from Central Asia, choose to make the Kundalika their abode between the months of November and March.

“DOCTOR’S FARM” can also boast of a varied variety of animals visiting the farm. Wild Boar, Hare Barking Deer and Mongoose are very frequently sighted. Fox, Panther, Hyena and even Tiger, have been rarely sighted. Although s nakes and scorpions abound, they rarely interact with humans, if left to themselves.

ACTIVITIES AT THE FARM:

“DOCTOR’S FARM”
is mainly a horticultural farm, with about 5000 trees growing in  its  15  acres.  Mango,  Cashew,  Coconut  and  Teak,  are  its  mainstay. However,  Breadfruit ,  Jackfruit ,  Betel Nut , Chickoo,  Lemon,  Guava,  Mulberry,  Pineapple,  Banana,  Papaya  and  Kokum have a sizeable presence. Floriculture is also  given importance,  with  Gladiolus, Orchids, Anthorium and Roses,  given pride of place.  Cinnamon, Pepper and Cloves  make  up  the rest. Though organic farming  is  the mainstay, as far as inputs, are concerned, chemical pesticides are presently in use. A  guide,  is at  all  times  available,  to  show  our guests  around  the farm. A  walk around the farm could be a very highly entertaining  and  educative  experience,   especially  for  children  of  the  age  group of  5  to  12  years,  as  much of  what is explained, is  part  of  their  curriculum in Botany.  The  nuances  of conservation of water, terracing of land to prevent soil erosion, grafting of  plants,  the  benefits of using fertilizers, the various pests affecting trees and their fruits, and the strategies developed to combat it, is thoroughly explained.

Note:Plucking of flowers and fruits, is strictly forbidden,and  the  penalties imposed are severe. However, interested persons, are free to purchase items on sale.

WHAT TO DO:
At dawn or in the evening, when the  birds are  most cheerful, “DOCTOR’S FARM” could  be  a  bird  watcher’s  delight.  Again,  boating  and fishing are pleasurable activities  carried  out early morning or evening, when the climate is most accom-
modating. It is also the right time for a walk around the farm.  Around  11:00 am is the  right  time  for  a  dip  in  the  pool  and  to  sit  under the artificial waterfall.Of course,  from  mid  June to  mid  October,  one  can enjoy the 4 natural waterfalls, barely  1 ½ kms  from  “DOCTOR’S  FARM”.  Outdoor  games  like  cricket,  football, throw ball,badminton and basketball could be played in a 6000 sq.ft.playground. Indoor games like chess, carom, cards and darts are also available.

NOTE:

(1) Swimming in the river is  discouraged, as  although the river is very tranquil,  it is also very deep.  Life jackets are to be compulsorily worn, if one goes boating.

(2) The  water  in  the swimming  pool is  directly  pumped in from the river. There is no filtration, chlorination  or  recycling  of the  water. The  excess  water is  allowed  to overflow from the pool, back to the river. It is a continuous flow of fresh river water.

(3) Fishing  tools  provided  are  simple;  consisting  of  a  rod and  line,  with  dough  as  bait. Serious  anglers  are expected to bring their own fishing gear.

FOOD AND BEVERAGES : Expert cooks concoct delicious veg and non-veg dishes, in separate kitchens, and is served in a large 1500 sq.ft. hall. Music and dancing is enjoyed by the youngsters. Food is buffet in nature and is served in the lower hall. However, the upper terrace of 1500 sq. ft. is occupied in the late evenings and night,by those who wish to soak  in  the  serenity,  and  the  magic  of  the  celestial  world.  It  is amazing  to see our firmament, without the blinkers of skyscrapers and pollution.

The  day  begins at 7:00 am with morning tea/coffee. It is followed by breakfast at around 8:30 am. Breakfast would consist of 2 items, along with tea/coffee.
For example,  it  could  be  Kanda  Poha with Batata Wada, or Egg Bhurji Pav, with Missal Pav, or Idli Sambar with Medu Wada, etc.

Lunch follows at 1:30 pm  with  chapatti, dal, rice, 2 vegetables, salad, pickles and a  sweet dish.  One  non  vegetarian dish,  usually chicken, is also part of the menu. Those  who  wish  to  have  a  late  lunch or dinner need not worry. The food will be warmed and served to them when they want it.

Then follows evening tea/coffee with biscuits .

Starters,  (virtually  a  mini  meal),  follows  at around 8:00 pm with Chicken, Paneer, Mushroom, American Golden Corn and Kabuli Chana to nibble on while you have your drinks.
