The farm not only grows berries but different types of veggies too depending on the seasons.
This was the first time I ever visited a farm and was one of the most memorable experience from our trip. Once done with a stroll you can buy different types of berries at unbelievably cheap prices for organic berries which was a steal deal. It is definitely one of the best things we experienced at Saj and recommend it to you as well
Stargazing (Special Mention)
One of the most interesting and different things we experienced here was the stargazing opportunity. Every night over the weekend you have a pretty high powered telescope setup in a strategical location at the lawn which you can use to peek on the stars, moon and planets.
This was the first time I gazed onto the shining night sky and saw the full moon up close and personal and it was just mesmerising. I got a picture of it too :). Hope you like it
