About Aram Paul
I am Aram Paul and VINI’S Farm was a surprise gift to my wife, Vinita, for her birthday. She did not have any clue till I took her to our farm . WHY FARM AND WHY VINI’S FARM? Lots of people have influenced me to create this farm. It includes my Dad, CJ Paul IFS, who was a Conservator of Forests. He loved nature and grew food organically in all the places he was posted. I grew up in tune with nature, with him. After I got married, my father in law, Dr.Josey Neroth, I realized, was a very passionate organic agriculturist though a Doctor by profession. Whenever I went to their house even before being offered a cup of coffee, he would take me to his small garden for a stroll and show all the vegetables and fruits he cultivated. Having grown up like this, my wife also liked home grown and organic food. Whenever we went grocery shopping I always saw her near the organic section buying organic food with our grocery bills running very high. That’s when I decided to be self sufficient and thought of making VINI’S FARM.
Why Aram Paul chose Munroe Island
While doing my hotel management course, I noticed hospitality made into hostility. The guest was not the king there. Hotels or Resorts decided, and still decide, the routine of a guest. I wanted to change few rules of the industry and give our guest an out of the box experience, pamper them with personalized services and make them live life, king size. So, I developed this new concept. I decided to give our guest Total Privacy, Freedom and Organic food from in an around the island. Since Vini’s Farm was a surprise gift for my wife, you can expect surprises being our guests as well. We do responsible tourism too. We segregate the waste, make vermicompost with natural waste and use that to grow our own vegetables organically. We procure food from local households and farmers in the immediate vicinity whereby we give back to the society we live in. We want to conserve natural resources in whatever way possible. We have planted mangrove trees around the island. Mangroves not only help prevent soil erosion, it also helps marine animals to breed in a natural environment .Hence, it protects and propagates marine life. We will be doing community development with a certain percentage of our profit. Though we already source organic food from local households and small time farmers for our use, we would like to make their produce available to bigger markets by marketing it and getting it across for them. We would encourage local schools to grow their own vegetables and get the children involved by distributing seeds and saplings to start off with. To educate present day children about the importance and necessity for organic farming and sustainability. Help us help Mother Earth Thank you very much –Hope you have a wonderful stay. Aram Paul & Vinita-nature lovers
