Top 5 Best Organic Farm Stays in Thailand — 6 Comments

  1. This is actually something that I’ve wanted to do for a long time, I just never knew what it was called. I think one of the best ways to get to know people and their culture is to help them work while on “vacation”. I don’t necessarily want to visit all of the famous landmarks of a country. Usually I’m happy just hanging with the locals.

    • I plan on starting a farmstay tour through SE Asia soon. This tour aims to accomplish multiple goals: satisfy my hunger to learn natural farming; learn how to turn degraded land into highly productive farmland at very low cost without harmful chemicals; build meaningful relationships with locals; boost organic food production and the economy; and create an ultimate lifestyle that’s healthy and rewarding. Stay tuned.

      Many of these places also do natural building because it makes sense to use what’s low cost and locally available. So natural building, natural farming, healthy living, adventure are all interwoven.

  2. Some farmstays offer classes in traditional cooking. This is a great way to learn how to make tasty, healthy meals with easy to grow, low cost herbs, spices, veggies, etc. Learn the basics firsthand then consider buying some recommended cookbooks for additional recipes. Plus, there are countless free recipes online. Some cooking sites are amazing.

  3. If you gradually visit 20 or so of these organic farms, you’d eventually learn which ones have the healthiest soil, know the most about natural farming, have the best/tastiest produce, the friendliest owners, have comfortable facilities, nice forests nearby for hiking, etc.

  4. We bought some veggies at a local organic farm the other day, and once again was amazed at the difference in quality between that and what’s available in supermarkets. No comparison. Nutrients are quickly depleted once veggies are harvested. Freshness is key.
