Fagunia is a labor of love for our long held dream. We have always been passionate about traveling, homestays, sustainable living, organic farming and have been fortunate to find a space of our own to put those passions into practice. We also feel that trapped in our increasingly atomized urban lifestyles, most of us have also lost touch with the natural world that is the sustaining source for life on this planet.
Fagunia Farmstay will be our modest attempt to try living in harmony with nature and offer responsible travelers a chance to reconnect with the natural world and give them an opportunity to enjoy the peace, beauty and gentle rhythms of nature. Through our farm fresh produce we aim to grow and share our own food using organic farming methods that preserve soil and nutrients. And by harvesting rain water, recycling sewage and waste and installing solar power we aim to eventually become completely self sufficient and minimize our impact on the natural world.
Aditi & Anil
Aditi is an inveterate traveller, DIY enthusiast, passionate cook, amateur photographer and co-founder of Nukkad Mandi, an upcycling marketplace that connects sellers and buyers. When not doing any of these, she is busy developing and executing strategies to raise funds to support the work of non-profits.
Anil is a writer, photographer, filmmaker and traveller, not necessarily in that order. He is the founder and curator of Aksgar, co-founder of the Wanted Series and Ghumna. When not doing any of the above he can be found working at his day job of developing and implementing communication strategies for non-profits.
Pushkar is Fagunia’s all in one resident superman. From cooking to sprucing up the villa to gardening and getting supplies he does it all without ever running out of stamina. Pushkar lives on the Farmstay full time and is originally from the neighbouring village.
Deepa lives in the same village where Fagunia Farmstay is located. She supports Pushkar in all work at the villa.
