Pattumalay Estate

This Estate originally belonged to a private foreign company.
The total area is 232 hectares.
In early stages, Pattumalay estate had mulberry trees and silk was extracted from their cocoons and dispatched to distant markets. Hence the estate came to be known as Pattumalay. As the years went by, the mulberry trees were replaced by the more lucrative tea gardens. In 1935 Malayalam Plantations Ltd.
took over the estate operations. The development of Pattumalay Estate began in 1943 by Mr. BM Mar, the British manager of Pattumalay Estate.
In1984 the company was renamed as Harrisons Malayalam Ltd.
Then the company became the part of RPG Group in 1989. Now it has become one of the high-yielding tea estates of Central Travancore, producing rich orthodox tea. The estate also owns Central Travancore’s only orthodox tea factory which has a capacity of 15000 kg per day.
