I am Viji, the owner of Hilltop View, a 100-year-old villa in the middle of a 10-acre coconut farming estate close to Mirissa in Southern Sri Lanka. This 6-year-old sustainable tourism business benefits the rural community in the village. My wife and I quit our six-figure income in Singapore/UK to start a new life in Sri Lanka to give something back to our village community & live close to nature. I have been growing organic fresh vegetables and fruits for the last five years using sustainable farming methods. We also grow spices such as Cinnamon, Black Pepper, Tumeric & cultivate the paddy fields surrounding the estate. Last year we were voted the best model farming estate in the District by the Ministry of Agriculture.
