AAK on family trip to Blue Lake Farm
February 12, 2018, 1:18 pm

Ladies and their families of Agnesian Alumnae of Kuwait (AAK) went on a trip to Blue Lake Farm on 9 February.  An entry charge of KD 2/- in the form of coupons could be used for any of the farm’s activities - strawberry picking, purchase of flowers, vegetables, food, and not to forget delicious sugarcane juice from sugarcane grown on the farm. A little lake with ducks and geese, a colorful play area and an animal corner kept the little ones entertained and amused.

Strawberry picking was certainly the highlight of the day. Armed with a box and a pair of scissors (provided by the farm staff), each member of the group happily snipped the strawberries of their choice. Each one was entitled to 250 gms of the succulent and delicious strawberries; any extra so picked and desired, attracted an additional fee. For many in the group, this was a first-time hands-on experience.

Fields of cabbage, broccoli, mustard and the flower beds were a beautiful sight. Fresh flowers and seeds were available for purchase. A variety of farm produce was also available for purchase at the farm market - honey, a wide range of herbal tea, fresh herbs and vegetables.

The sugarcane field was yet another fascinating spot on the farm.  Diwaniya style seating arrangements in between sugarcane stalks made for ideal picnic conditions. Freshly extracted sugarcane juice laced with lime brought back memories of Light House Hill and Mangalore.

A tent booked earlier ensured privacy for a lunch of chicken biryani and raita and a game of Bingo.
