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.
Some larger project right now:
We are currently looking for help with cloning our bamboo and makeing new starts.
We also have a nursery that is important and needs help looking after.
And have four dogs that need to be fed:]
We have staff on site for labor that will show u alot of the daily farm activitys but not all required as cloneing and care for the plant starts is a main focus thats valuble and provides alot of learning.
