Spend a morning on ourLIVING RICE FARM,Come and let us show you how rice is grown on our farm, experience the life of a farmer and try your hand at some of the activities. Or just view it all from the comfort of our traditional Lao rice house...more
A morning well spent - 14 steps (last one is eating - my favourite!) on how to grow and harvest rice, something I am sure a lot of us take for granted. It is a lot of hard, labour intensive work under the hot sun....More
Lots of friends had recommended this but we still thought we were crazy to pay for hard work in the sun - but this was a great experience. The staff show you all 14 steps of making rice from picking the best seeds to eating...More
Part of a tour, we visited and enjoyed it immensely. Lots to learn about growing rice, and these folks showed us and taught us to plow with a water buffalo, select seeds, germinate them, plant them, transplant the seedlings, harvest the rice, thrash it, clean...More
This community farm is a treasure! The wonderful Den was a fantastic guide. We learnt a lot and had a lot of laughs along the way as we ploughed the field, planted rice, and juiced sugarcane the old fashioned way! Would highly recommend this tour...More
I wondered if this would be one of those canned superficial presentations for us ignorant tourists, but I was very happily surprised. The entire process was engaging and visceral without us really having to do anything you would call work. No wasted down time. The...More
It was a very nice and worth it experience,
Almost perfect, only a little thing about the crew, they were all nice but i felt they were not as passionate enough on their work, or maybe it is because of same job everyday and i...More
In all our travels we have been past hundreds of rice fields, but had no idea how this crop actually is grown and harvested, so based on other’s reviews we tried The Living Land Company and it was well worth it! From the time we...More
We didn't really relish the idea of being in mud and around water buffalos, but it turned out to be a highlight event of our trip. Learning about the cultivation of rice, from beginning to end and then having a great lunch, was wonderful learning...More

Hello. Yes, the hat is a loaner. If you want one as a souvenir you can readily buy one in town. Kids will love it. There were two in my group - a little younger than your son. They participated in each of the activities - well, except for plow the paddy behind Rudolph, the water buffalo. I booked directly via email. I am sure your hotel can arrange a booking with a day or two notice. I doubt there is a limit on the number of participants. The morning that I was there, they divided the guests into two groups. That way everyone had an opportunity to be hands-on. And, I strongly suggest you all get into it. Of al the photos taken on my journey, those from the rice farm are the most popular with my friends.
