The Experience

Our organic farm is a Sustainable Living Project initiated by a small group of people in Thailand. It is run by Pinan Jim (who was a Buddhist Monk for 16 years) and his wife Pinan Tea Kumsrisom who own the 10 acres where the project take place. Here you can learn about sustainable agriculture, organic farming, forest survival, meditation, medicinal plants, cooking and so much more.

Additional Fee Required

If even a small part of yourself is urging you to take this adventure, please trust yourself, and go for it! the eco village is everything it says it is and more. With that said, I don't want to say anything more to spoil it for you, other than I am feeling 11/10 even after I have gone :D

I really enjoyed my stay at the eco village, I planned to stay a week but ended up staying longer. I learned a lot about sustainable farming, Lan Na traditions, cooking and music. It's also a good place to get in touch with eastern philosophy and Buddhist teachings. If you are open and eager to learn and show some initiative you can learn a lot and have a great time with Pinan Jim and Pinan Tea.

I ended up leaving early, but not from Pinan, he seemed great and the area seemed very beautiful. I was just very overwhelmed and tired upon arrival from flights and mishaps, I felt it was unfair to Pinan because I knew my first morning waking up I was going to be unable to work. I wish the eco village well !

My experience at the eco village wasn't the best one. Didn't connect much with Pinan Jim and had the impression of not being take care of. Cabins are very simple made of bamboo and mine had a lot of repairs that need to be done in some broke and leaking parts. The bathroom is typical oriental style with no flush, sink or shower. Just a bucket to do everything. The work hours are in the morning and on the afteernon is rest time. As the farm is far from the district or the city there is not much to do on the rest of the day. Bring mosquito repelent and toilet paper!
