The garden retains an interesting assemblage of animals and plants representative of the remnant wildlife of Java- which is mainly retained in such settings. This includes 43 bird, 33 butterfly, seven frog and seven lizard species. Many species of rare fruit tree have been planted. Our small coffee plantation nestles in the villa hill.
Local walks to the slopes of Mount Ungaran are through secondary forest and plantations of nutmeg, coffee, and cloves. These areas are also rich in wildlife.
The paddy surrounding the Joglo is a living farm that is share-cropped and produces three harvests a year. The ecological cycle of this paddy unfolds daily and is eternally fascinating. From the water buffalo that move in to squash in the rice stalks to the flares at night of the local villagers as they hunt for eels.
