Living Land Companys Rice Farm Experience,
Laos, Luang Prabang and The North
Info : Living Land Companys Rice Farm Experience
Originating as a small organic vegetable farm, the Living Land Company is a “not for profit” community based project in a village just outside Luang Prabang. By taking a hands on tour here you can learn about the farm itself and the processes involved in rice farming.
The project is staffed by people from the local village and the farm produces many of the vegetables used by the town’s top hotels and restaurants. The profits allow many local children to be put through school.
In a small group you’ll get to grips with the day to day processes of the farm, particularly those on the paddy fields, along with traditional methods and machines used to clean the rice, make sticky rice, rice noodles and sugar cane juice, among other things.
The Living Land motto is ‘when was the last time you did something for the first time?’ So, you will have the opportunity to plough the fields, plant the seeds and cut and collect the rice, while being introduced to the farm’s buffalos. Visitors can be as hands on as they wish; we recommend wading through the mud to plant the seeds, its an interesting, informative not to mention fun experience.
The tour ends with an opportunity to sit down and try a variety of rice based snacks, including some rice whiskey. It can be extended to include a local lunch on the wooden veranda overlooking the farm. The farm is not far from the Kuan Si waterfalls so you can combine visits to create a full day tour.
The tour is open to families with children over 6 and we think it is a great way to experience the traditional rural way of life, meet local people and have a very enjoyable time in the process. Highly recommended.

Laos Family Special
A fantastic special offer for lovely, laid-back Laos. A once-in-a-lifetime adventure for all the family.
The guides and drivers couldn't have been better, 10 out of 10. Dao was outstanding. He made the trip extra special for us. His knowledge of the area and the whole country, history etc. was fantastic. He was brilliant with the children too, he made the trip fun, exciting and safe. If ever he was talking to a local in Lao, he would always involve us in the conversation and explain what was happening. At the end of our 9 days with him we didn't want him to go.
