The Village Farm that you see today evolved through several periods of development made over the last 10 years. Today, the estate is both a farm and a tranquil resort for those wishing to experience a taste of Thai country life and a sense of a time and lifestyle lost to many of us today. The estate not only produces Thailand’s finest wines, but also a range of other crops including flowers, oranges and exotic fruits.
The Village Farm area covers 80 acres of high ground over 500 meters above sea level- along the ridges and slopes of Baan Pai Ngam village, Wang Nam Keow district, Nakhorn Ratchasima province in North Eastern Thailand. Situated on the edge of the world renowed Khorat Plateau at the tip of the South-Western corner, nestled between Tublan and Khao Yai National Parks, the entire region of Wang Nam Keow is famous for its natural beauty with almost year round cool weather and enchanting morning mists.
During the first five years of farmland development the emphasis was on matching ground and infrastructure improvements with crops and zoning, seriously taking into account the conservation of the nature and environment on the property and its surrounds.
The first crops of the Village Farm where actually sweet corn and potatoes, whilst the ongoing, step-by-step developments began, soon the property started to take the shape of an exotic landscape. This coincided with the first stage of building construction at the property, the farm home, the barn, granary and workshop were all completed and instantly became the focal point of our country village life.
Currently, Lychee, Mangosteen, Longans and other fruits are ‘wild grown’ in amongst the natural forests preserved on the Wang Nam Keow estate. They have turned out to be of a much higher and more desirable quality in this way.
1997 was a landmark year for the Village Farm, a group of visitors and friends from France came with advice urging us to immediately expand the vineyards to lay the foundations for wine production on the farm.
The significantly cooler-climate high up on the slopes and ridges of the plateau, with its cool breezes and low night time temperatures, coupled with good winter rains and morning mists, help to create ideal conditions for the long, slow ripening period required to produce premium quality wine grapes and just one year later, the vines began to yield their first grapes, opening another important chapter in the evolution of the Village Farm.
Today, almost another decade on, we have in our hands the rare and precious gem of a country farm estate, with stunning vineyards, a fully functioning country village -complete with country accommodation for guests and friends and a winery built of stone in the French style. Apart from producing wines that are gaining recognition for their quality and flavour, the farm also produces oranges, fruits, arabica coffee beans and market flowers, with Kisana plantations for essential oils and an olive grove for the production of olives, olive oil and infused oils, already part of the immediate future at our new Wang Nam Keow farm extension. Recently, the Village Farm also opened its country health spa, utilizing local techniques, traditional remedies and natural oils.
Further recent adaptations to the farm add more of a European wine country feel to the winery, which itself looks like a classic French chateau and is named Chateau des Brumes (chateau in the mist). These physical improvements include laterite roads connecting the vineyards, stone walking paths and a cobblestone ‘Roman’ road around the chateau.
The village barn, which is the major building on the farm, was also recently adapted to become a restaurant, wine tasting area and cellardoor sales area. This caters to the hundreds of visitors from all over Thailand and around the world who visit or come for a ‘farm stay’ with us each month to take in the unique and beautiful experience of winery life and Thai village farm life.
