Local island farming
Our garden has limited production, so we ship fresh local produce, mainly mango, watermelon and Maldivian chilly, from the nearby local island collective.
Our chef and gardeners visit the farm regularly to ensure that quality and production standards. We supply seeds, support farmers to improve farming techniques and eventually buy their produce that will be shipped back to Ayada Maldives.
