Travel Experience

Phutawen Farm opens to the public on weekends. For a weekday field visit, it needs to be booked in advance. Activities include farm tours, cycling, and camping. Visitors could enjoy a combination of agriculture and nature as watching blooming of sunflowers and cosmos fields, as well as picking and buying fresh vegetables, for example, tomatoes, leafy salad vegetable, and cucumber.

Responsibility

Phutawen Farm Project aims to promote sustainable agriculture that is safe and has good quality and environmental friendly. They hope to share their knowledge and interest to people and contribute to the improvement of farmers’ livelihood. Also, they provide an opportunity for students as well as interested people to have an internship and real practices at the farm.

Business Case

Agriculture is a key sector for Lao PDR. Around 75 per cent of the population is engaged in agriculture. However, the sector, in general, is still considered underdeveloped and income generation is relatively low. Therefore, they start from their farm first to produce quality products that comply with national and regional food standards and to be the showcase that other farmers and companies can learn.
