Guests will be collected from their hotel at 08:15 in the morning for a short transfer into the countryside. 5km outside Luang Prabang, The Living Land Community Farm is located in an entirely organic farm in a beautiful rural setting, flanked by rice paddies. The stilted wooden farm buildings house an interactive museum to give an insight in to many aspects of rural life in Laos.
Enjoy a guided walk through the organic vegetable farm and learn all manner of trades, from thatched-roof making and basketry to noodle production and extracting the juice from sugarcane.
Guests will be able to experience the life of a farmer and try their hand at various activities, including ploughing the rice fields with the resident buffalo called Susan! Guests should expect to get muddy and may wish to bring a change of clothes! Foot showers and western toilets are available.
Rice is the most important crop throughout Laos and guests will learn about the 13 steps of rice production. The 14th is eating, and that comes at the end with a range of rice-based snacks! Return to the hotel around 12:00–12:30.
