Kaida Resort and Residences

Rice Planting and Harvesting


In August each year, Kaida Resort and Residences arrange day trips to Villa Farm where Steve and Jenny teach our guests how to grow rice. If you like the idea of feeling the earth under your feet instead of concrete, then you can get knee deep in mud and plant rice in paddies nestled among the mountains of Samoeng.

Villa Farm is a forty minute scenic drive along mountain roads known locally as the 'Samoeng Loop'. If you are not around Chiang Mai in rainy August, then you have a second opportunity in November to help harvest the rice. It gets a little dusty, but you're sure to have some fun.
