About the estate

Kerehaklu Estate is a sustainable, biodiversity-friendly farm in Chikmagalur, Karnataka, India. Specialty coffee is grown alongside several varieties of pepper, avocados, citrus and mulberries - all in harmony with the local flora and fauna.

Kerehaklu has been run by the Thipaiah family since 1953 and is now overseen by Pranoy Thipaiah, who is the fifth generation to do so. The farm has gone chemical-free in late 2016 and are thus experiencing a gradual influx of birds and small mammals from the neighbouring Bhadra State forest.
