Porpeang farm lays hidden away in the historical province of Kamphaeng Phet. Surrounded by farmland on all sides, you will find peace & tranquillity . . . That is apart from Toon occasionally shouting and the dogs barking.
The farm stretches to 50 rai in size and is blessed with a natural water source all year round. We have created an off-grid farmstead, best described as basic, yet comfortable (with a few mod cons like solar power & a water borehole.)
Our emphasis is on leading a self-sufficient & sustainable lifestyle. We try to accomplish this by diversifying in our farm's produce . . . Let's just say its varied.
The farm's topsoil was almost devoid of organic matter when we first started out. Now we produce our own biochar, vermicompost, manure, compost & mulch on-site. It takes time to fix, but we're in it for the long-haul & we'll get there.
We strive to produce fresh & healthy organically grown fruits & vegetables. Our sweet papayas & juicy limes are heavenly. There's always Aloe vera on hand to add to a fruit smoothy or ease the pain of sunburn.
Our goat herd is our pride & joy here on Porpeang farm. They have quickly become our main point of focus to take the farm forward. Ever-increasing in numbers & an endless source of amusement, we are smitten with keeping goats.
Our livestock includes over 100 free-range poultry. We raise various breeds of ducks, chickens & quail. The list continues to grow. Although tricky peeling, boiled quail eggs dipped in soy sauce & pepper really hit the mark.
You can't beat fresh Yabbies straight from the BBQ! These fascinating crustaceans grow large & fast & aren't often seen here in Thailand. Just watch out for those big claws! This year we are scaling up production.
Our farm produce is always fresh & reasonably priced. It is sold locally, delivered by us (depending on distance) or can be collected via farm-gate pickup. We also ship orders throughout Thailand depending on the item & quantity.
We always welcome farm visits. Get in touch if you fancy dropping by for a look around & a chat over a cuppa.
Just shout at the front gate or beep your horn if you can't see us . . . we'll be somewhere nearby.
For those of you wishing to visit & stay overnight, we currently offer accommodation in our village house. Airconditioned & only 3 minutes drive away from our farm. Meals on the farm & sightseeing trips can be arranged.
