Mr. Abraham has a very nice way of explaining about all the plants. His hard work reflects in the way he took me around the garden. My wishes for Mr Abraham for happy and happy life.

Abraham who is the owner/manager of this family owned farm is very knowledgeable and passionate about the subject of spices and flora in general. This comes across in his speech and explanations. Even though I was alone for the most part, I never felt rushed and Abraham was very patient while I was taking pictures, in fact encouraging me by pointing out stuff. This is very much a working farm, the touring part is incidental. There was no pressure to buy from the shop and the fee was so reasonable. Definitely recommend!

This was one of the coolest things we did in Thekkady. Mr. Abraham himself takes you around his amazing garden. Shows you everything from spices to various rare orchids, flowers and trees. Abraham is a walking talking encyclopedia. Just wow. Remember your Taxi guy will not want to get you here they say and do everything to discourage you and divert you elsewhere. Don't fall for this. The spices are also excellent and reasonable.

Abraham is a very knowledgeable person who shares his love for the plants and fauna in his garden. He is a great character and speaks perfect English. We were visiting from Australia and locally with family from Kottyam . There are so many varieties of spices here used for cooking and medicinal Ayurveda purposes. Tastes his chillies, savour the smell of his Cardomon and savour the abundance of his beautiful garden. This place has been visited by the BBC 3 times filming for TV here. Highly recommend a visit. There is a small shop too.

Abraham’s garden is as old as he is, for the first tree planted by his father, a jack-fruit tree, was planted when Abraham was born. When we appeared on Sunday morning to visit the garden, Abraham received us with a warm smile. He toured the large garden with us, explaining about every plant with endless patience. It was a joyful experience because we love botanics and nature, and there were so many surprises.
