Organic Farm to Table

In Nature’s Playground

 

As part of Our Jungle Camp’s Farm-to-Table concept and as an essential part of our agricultural Jungle Life school camp outreach, we maintain over 980 square meters of farmland. With both rice paddy fields and gardens, our facilities are the perfect place to teach local and international students about the wide variety of plants found in the subtropics. Our grounds also have an area dedicated to commercial organic agriculture, which supplies Our Jungle Camp’s restaurant and also supports our employees’ needs.

During both primary rice planting seasons in Thailand (for Khao Sok September till the end of November and January until March) the Our Jungle Camp Farm team also nurtures Roselle (Thai Hibiscus) for our special tea’s, desserts and homemade jams served during breakfast at the resort. Our gardens are also used during our cooking classes, bringing students into the organic farm to pick vegetables and herbs straight from the garden beds!

At our Jungle Life local camps, students from the surrounding schools can learn from our three dedicated local farm staff about rice planting, composting, waste separation, and the more extensive plant pollination process through an exhibition of a small stingless beehive. Nearly all of the provided Thai breakfasts, lunches and dinners at Our Jungle Camp are prepared with ingredients grown and harvested at the farm and gardens and offer kids and teachers a sense of food origin.

For the future, the Our Jungle Camp Farm team aims to increase its offering in organic sprouts and more uncommon salad greens in Thailand, like rocket greens, mustard greens, and red oak. Our team will also embark on a venture to conduct seed saving for our Organic Seed Bank, and intends to plant, farm and harvest more non-tropic plants such as cherry tomatoes, Japanese cucumbers, and pumpkins. Along with the plentiful fruit trees available of longan, mangosteen, and rambutan, our Farm Team can be seen busily working daily from 8:00 am till 5:00 pm.

We look forward to sharing our garden grounds with you!
