Our Farms & Techniques
We stumbled into starting a farm in 2021. We were given an opportunity to develop a piece of permaculture property in Chiang Mai, and that is how we started our farming journey. We both grew up in Bangkok and moved to the US to study Computer Science, but after working in the US for a while, we decided to move back to Thailand.
Sunshine Permaculture Farm (35 rai)
Located in Mae Taeng, Sunshine Permaculture farm was designed by Hannah Moloney for a group of 7 friends who wanted to design a property to retire on. The farm is designed to be a homestead and be self-sustaining for the families that live on the property. We have started executing on this design since 2021 and are in the beginning stages of establishing the final design. Our first market garden was on this farm. Now we are slowly converting this entire farm to diverse fruit orchards.
Living Roots Farm (55 rai)
Located about 5 minutes from Sunshine Permaculture Farm. Living Roots Farm was designed to be a fully commercial regenerative agriculture farm that was designed using Permaculture design principles, Keyline principles, Syntropic Agriculture and using the Regrarians framework. It is a demonstration site to trial many different techniques in Thailand. The work started at this property in 2022. The design focused on integrating tree systems with vegetable systems and animal systems. It also has an Airbnb on the site. As well as creating BioComplete compost for the vegetable growing operation.
