Doused almost nightly with fresh tropical island rain showers, Matava’s extensive organic vegetable garden and orchards offer the resort kitchen a host of fresh vegetables and fruits to use daily in every meal and provide nothing but the freshest fare.
The organic gardens abundantly offer such fruits as coconuts, pineapple, pawpaw, guava, banana, mangos, lemons, avocados and cumquats.
With the hard work of our local community farmers, the garden supplies delicious organic vegetables such as eggplant, tomatoes, lettuces, cucumber, zucchini, carrots, cabbages, pumpkin, capsicum, radishes, and cassava.
To complement our vegetable dishes, the organic garden grows an array of herbs such as coriander, basil, sage, lemon grass, mint and oregano.
Since we compost all our organic waste, we have a large compost system to help enrich the already fertile soil.
Community Organic Honey Program
Partnering with local community bee keepers and splitting the honey 50/50 we have pioneered private/community bee keeping on Kadava with our bee hives.
Both for pollination and honey collection this is a boon in the organic farm and a delicious treat at the breakfast table.
