Update February 2022

My Organic farm & Cafe is located in a rural village in Si Sa Ket province, Thailand. We are recruiting volunteers for sustainable agriculture to make food safe and healthy. I dream to feed people all around the world but only me is not enough so I am asking for help. I want to gather people from all over the world to do great things for other communities together. I would like to get any kind of support and recommendations.

Note:

we donโ€™t have a beautiful sea and beach around this area. We live a natural simple life, hot sun and live pretty much in poverty. Itโ€™s an experience that you may not find in other places ๐Ÿ˜ Would you accept this challenge?ย  ๐Ÿ’ช Contact me and read more info below ๐Ÿ‘‡

General info โœ

Hello everyone, I am Krabeeputh from Thailand. I am an Agricultural Entrepreneur, I do organic farming. I have a rice field area of 19,200 square meters divided into Khok Nong Na model (The New Theory Agriculture of King Bhumibol) 4,800 square meters the rest still be a rice field. I cultivated it with my mom which has 65 years old. I grow many economic trees like rosewood, Yang, Ironwood, White meranti, padauk and etc. and fruits and vegetables.

I just started organic farming after being affected by the economic and Covid-19 pandemic since May 2021. I previously worked in the TV broadcast industry, which was disrupted by online media. Most people will go into the digital and technological world. But I switched to the agricultural industry because I think that although technology has advanced far as long as we are human we need FOOD! Agriculture is the source of food.

But I don’t have any money left. Therefore, I would like to get help from everyone to help develop the area to be more prosperous and share experiences and knowledge that arise with farmers nearby and the general public.

What I plan to do
  • Agritourism and health tourism
  • Processed agricultural food
  • Homestay or Resort
  • Restaurant and Cafe in Chai Thung style
  • Alternative Health Center with Herbs and Natural Therapies

I’m open to any help, ideas, opinions. I welcome you to come and learn together. Or some of you are not convenient to come but are willing to issue financial assistance. In the future, if there is income, everyone is able to receive Profit Sharing.
