Kebun Salak

Penduduk dusun Kelor rata-rata memiliki kebun salak yang berlokasi di sekitar dusun. Perkebunan tersebut sudah mengalami musim petik sejak tahun 1990. Panen raya setiap tahun berkisar pada bulan Juni & Desember.

Wisatawan yang datang ke dusun ini dapat menikmati perkebunan yang terbentang dari utara sampai selatan dusun Kelor. Di waktu siang, wisatawan dapat berinteraksi langsung dengan petani dalam hal penanaman, pemeliharaan, pembudidayaan dan pemetikan salak CUWO (tergantung musim). Dipandu dengan cahaya ‘senthir’ di sepanjang perjalanan, wisatawan juga dapat menyusuri hamparan perkebunan ini di waktu malam. Dilanjutkan dengan api unggun di halaman Joglo …. sebuah eksotisme masa lalu yang mengesankan. Pengunjung dapat pula melakukan kemah di lapangan terbuka yang terletak di antara kebun salak.
Nama CUWO diambil dari ciri khas tandan salak yang berbentuk mangkuk (bahasa jawa: cuwo). Nama ini juga mengingatkan pada mata air yang terbentuk pertama kali di dusun Kelor.
