More About This Experience

Agriculture is the lifeblood of the Indochina countries, supporting its growth from the beginning including the rise of fall of dynasties, till today. This experience will allow you to get as close to nature as possible as you try your hand out at traditional Vietnamese farming techniques and get in touch with nature with a local farmer. Then harvest some fresh ingredients yourself off the farm and cook them on the spot! It doesn't get any fresher than this! Our farm is located in charming Tra Que, a short hop over from Hoi An. Vegetable farming have been the mainstay of people here due to the great growing conditions of good soil, abundance of water and mild weather. People always say Tra que vegetable are sweeter! Many types of vegetables are grown here: lettuce, houttuynia, basil, coriander and lots more. They make great ingredients for traditional Hoi An dishes like Cao Lau, Quang noodles, tom huu (made from Tra Que vegetables) and cake with meat (Banh xeo - Pancake). Take a break from the crowds at Hoi An and spend a charming day farming with local farmers. You will learn how to loosen soil, administer fertilizers, sow seeds, then harvest and cook the famous Hoi An Tôm hữu. Tôm hữu is Hoi An's favorite dish, and it is almost always available on special occasions, especially to welcome relatives and friends from afar. Join us and have a unique agri-cultural experience!

We had a great time with Mrs Hong on her farm. She showed us how to plant spinach and water the vegetables which was harder than it looks! We got to try plowing, picking, planting, and watering out in her garden. Then we sat at a table outside her house and made Tôm hữu and fresh spring rolls, bo... Read more
