Dong Yen Agricultural Enterprise Community


Dong Yen Agricultural Enterprise Community

Suphan Buri

The village of “Ban Dong Yen” which is of Lao Krang origin dates back to the reign of King Rama III. Located within the forest close to the town of U Thong, this village used to serve as a rest spot for passersby, thus the name “Dong Yen” which translates to “the village of shade”. Today, community members here run a communal agricultural enterprise, inviting visitors to try growing organic vegetables, mushrooms and sunflower sprouts, taking care of hens, and making earthworm compost in a fun and enjoyable way. The ultimate goal is for visitors to pick up real practical knowledge and skills they can use. You can collect fresh vegetables from the garden for cooking, make chili paste and arrange a local set lunch. Then, continue with some more activities like organic rice and traditional tofu-making, learn about the culture and have fun crafting inhaler in bottles decorated with tiny figures. Discover how the locals’ enthusiasm has lit what would be a relatively ordinary village, turning it into a charming learning spot.
