Nutmeg is a spice that comes from the seed of the nutmeg tree (Myristica fragrans). It is native to the Moluccas, also known as the Spice Islands, in Indonesia but is now cultivated in various tropical regions around the world. Nutmeg has been used for centuries as a culinary spice and is known for its warm, sweet, and slightly spicy flavor.

About Varanashi Farms
The illustrious story of Varanashi Organic Farms, handed down by over six generations of the Varanashi family, begins more than 200 years ago, when in 1816 King Lingaraju, Ruler of Kodagu, gifts a large piece of land and a big house in the Moodambailu area to one of his favourites, a wiseman by the name of Jyothishi.

Thirumaleshwari Amma, one of the female members of this family, marries Varanashi Krishnayya and settles at Moodambailu. Their son Varanashi Subraya Bhat and grandson Varanashi Krishna Moorthy manage the property in subsequent years and name it Varanashi Farms.

Varanashi Surbraya Bhat was a pioneer in setting up Cacao plantations in south India and also went on to set up CAMPCO Ltd. – today, one among the co-operative giants in India and was President of CAMPCO from 1972 to 1990. His son Dr. Varanashi Krishna Moorthy has set up research facilities for the improvement of agriculture and allied fields through research, education and outreach with special emphasis on the promotion of eco-friendly and sustainable technologies.

Partha Varanashi is youngest heir in this family to take the family tradition forward. A coach for Team India in the 2019 Aquatic World Championships, he champions movement sports and aquatic education at the farm.
