We have been renovating the Monarakanda Estate since July 2010 which had been neglected over the previous 15 plus years. The estate is predominantly a tea grower and since our purchase, we have infilled many of the existing tea fields and planted large areas of the estate with tea which had never been utilised. The productivity of the estate has increased significantly as the newly planted tea bushes have started to yield a crop.
We have plans to build a micro tea factory so that we are able to produce our own single estate tea for resale.
A number of families live with us on the Monarakanda Estate and we are proud of their commitment and effort in helping us to make the estate run smoothly.
