Cinnabar Farm and Farmstay: A very personal and delightful family run homestay and farmstay in Kodaikanal - a scenic hill station in Tamil Nadu, South India. We stayed there and in fact that is where Tina learnt her basics of homemade cheesemaking i.e. cheese that is not processed by the industrial method. Thanks Bala and Vasu. We have a long way to go in cheesemaking at our farm and we will be coming back to Cinnabar Farm for sharing notes and learning more.
