Blessed with rich fertile volcanic soil and doused with fresh tropical island rain showers, Matava’s extensive organic farm 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 farm abundantly offers such fruits as coconuts, pineapple, pawpaw, guava, banana, mangos, lemons, avocados and kumquats.
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 farm 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 Kadavu with our bee hives.
Both for pollination and honey collection this is a boon in the farm and a delicious treat at the breakfast table.
