At the Akshayakakpa farm in Pooriyambakkam, we don’t do anything by halves! It is with great enthusiasm that our team strives to create authentic experiences so our visitors can enjoy the truly traditional essence of every festival!
The first month of the year brings with it the beginning of the harvest season, marked by the Pongal celebration in Tamil Nadu. The 4-day long festivities are essentially an expression of gratitude to the Sun God and Lord Indra for the fruits of harvest. Each of the 4 days pays homage to traditions and culture that span over special delicacies, decorations and rituals.
This year, Akshayakalpa Organic invites you to take a trip down memory lane with the Tamil Nadu Pongal celebrations at our Pooriyambakkam farm with ‘Forgotten Foods – Pongal Edition’ – a culinary experience of a bygone era.
Located at a distance of 90 kilometres, the Akshayakalpa Pooriyambakkam farm is the perfect location to celebrate Pongal near Chennai like never before. Embrace fresh starts as you spend quality time with your loved ones and introduce today’s children to the traditions of yesteryears. Cook Pongal the authentic way – in earthern pots over woodfire – as you welcome prosperity into your life.
Pongal celebrations in Tamil Nadu are incomplete without intricate Kollams or rangolis! Unleash your creativity as you adorn the floors with beautiful rice-flour rangolis that would make your Patti proud and help us decorate the ‘Velan Kudil’ or ‘The farmers house’ with lamps and fresh flowers. Capture the essence of Maatu Pongal by worshiping our beloved cows and show them gratitude for their role in a farmer’s life.
Enjoy hearty meals befitting the festivities and get competitive as you play village games. Or simply relax amidst the fresh, unpolluted air and soak in the calm tranquility of nature. Present your old clothes a new lease of life by getting them converted into eco-friendly bags.
Give your year a fresh start in the truest sense of the word! Join us for ‘Forgotten Foods’ on 17th January 2023 at the Pooriyambakkam farm and enjoy Pongal celebrations near Chennai like your grandparents did.
