  • Description


    Hi guys my name is Nice. I live in a small town called Mae Ai the north of Chiangmai, about two hours bus ride direct to pai. I've had to move back from Chang mai to look after my dad who fell ill and decided to start my own business to stay close to my family. I've just started an organic business called the better choice and we grow our own organic fruits, vegetables and rice berry rice in my gardens and turn them into delicious, healthy foods!

  • Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I will provide three meals a day as well as teas, hot beverages and two days off a week. This is an amazing opportunity for those wanting to learn about agriculture as well as the local Thai culture as the village is not a popular tourist destination so you will see true Thai living! The village is full of friendly helpful individuals so you will never feel homesick. I will also take you to travel once a week and will take you to the local markets etc to help you learn the language and try new foods. This is a great opportunity for a cultural exchange!

  • Help


    The work here is varied so no two days will be the same but will include helping in the strawberry, vegetables and herb gardens, harvesting fruits and rice berry rice, helping to grow mushrooms, packing eggs and helping to sell them at a local food market once a week and also help with delivering the eggs from time to time. Most of the work will revolve around the gardens :)
