Dikkapitiya is the model farm of Little Smile Organic (LSO). It lies on the south-east side of the highlands at the road between Beragala and Wellawaya (A4) at milestone 193 at an altitude of approximately 800 meters. Also belonging to LSO are the farms Rajagiri and Luxmi Estate located within a radius of 5 km.
When Michael Kreitmeir bought Dikkapitiya in 2007, the farm was completely run down. Until 1980 sugar cane had been cultivated there for more than 50 years, parts of the mountain jungle were cleared ruthlessly and the nature severely damaged. The results were fatal since the land was lying under an enormous mountain massif. A violent landslide destroyed large parts of the workers settlements, the farm had been sold several times and was increasingly neglected. Weeds and thorns grew exuberantly and the remaining houses dilapidated. Thus, in the first three years Michael Kreitmeir concentrated his works mainly on renaturation and reforestation as well as the establishment of drain systems and the building of retaining walls.
