An organic farm in Vang Vieng, Laos

Organic Farm Vang Vieng (OFVV) promotes the use of natural materials & traditional methods for growing its crops & raising its animals, without using chemicals or artificial fertilizers, which are harmful to both our health & the environment. Their high quality natural food is enjoyed by visitors of their Farm’s organic food restaurant & various other restaurants in Laos. Leading by example, they aim to show people around the world that organic farming methods can be profitable as well as healthy.

A portion of the earnings from the Farm are used to support our local community, by providing training, employment, support & education to the local villagers through various projects. For example: Equal Education For All (EEFA).

Those who wish to make a difference in the community are welcomed to volunteer help at their Farm. It will be a rare opportunity to learn more about organic farming and the Lao culture.

  1. I absolutely love this!
    I believe if more and more people experienced this kind of travel, that they would realize how much work and precious our planet is! And maybe there will be hope in restoring what we have already destroyed.
    Thank you for sharing this type of article.
    I plan on sharing this brilliant type of tourism! We have a beautiful gem that we are living on; hopefully it’s never too late to save it!
