Started in 2017 We are based in the United States but setup our Coconut 🥥 farmstead in Kampot. We grow a variety of plants and tress with a ever growing collection and would love for other people to come help and join us. We are planting new orchards every year and in the works of putting in durian and mangosteen this 2020 monsoon season.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We enjoy cooking with whats gathered on the farm and have the main ingredients for almost all khmer dishes.
    Also raise our own chickens and have fish from the river collected by locals or ourselves.
    We collect propagate clone and seed start many of our tropical plants and want to teach the skills to others who would like to learn. Our farm provides a place with a hands on feel of what its like to live work with nature on a working farm in cambodia. With Mix of old and modern techniques our farm stands out from all the farms around and provide a model for locals and a place for visitors to practice and experiment in an environment that has yet to be widspread in cambodia.
