  • Description

    Description

    We are the farmer in Ban Non-Sawang, Si Muangmai District,Ubon Ratchathani,Thiland. We live in a small farm, growing rice, planting vegetables, having a fish pond, and raising buffalos. Since there is not many buffalos left in nowadays, so we are trying to preserve them as the old days we used to have. Most of the people use the tractor to work on their farmsbut we use buffalos to work on the farm. They help us to plough the land, we use their poop to make fertilizer for the farm. We called our farm "Thai Buffalos Preservation Farm".
