Location: Vang Vieng
Who and What: More a community development project that a farm, we provide employment, information and training to preserve traditional Lao farming practices. Our farm was founded to introduce organic farming methods in an area where chemicals and deforestation were ruining the land. Leading by example, we aim to show that organic methods can be profitable as well as healthy.
The Experience: Enjoy a meal at the Vang Vieng Organic Farm restaurant. The menu is extensive and uses only the freshest ingredients. Buy packs of organically-grown products such as mulberry tea, organic coffee and hand-woven silk scarves, which enable local women to practice traditional crafts and make a living.
