Our aim is to not only create year round employment
and produce locally grown chemical free vegetables but to lessen the dependence upon the uncontrolled importation of vegetables from neighbouring countries.
From humble beginnings
We started with a barren rice paddy field and began digging reservoirs to catch the rains and nurturing the land back to health with biochar and organic compost. After the first crops were planted we began preparing an area to build the first of the climate controlled hydroponic greenhouses.
High and lows
Our self taught farmers face many challenges,unpredictable weather, competition from uncontrolled imports, high power costs and many other unique obstacles. Daily perseverance has paid off and today they are positioned to meet the growing demand for their healthy vegetables.
The Happy + Co Farm employs over 40 women & men who plant, harvest and market its increasingly varied produce, in addition they also build and equip greenhouses to allow for year-round harvesting.
The stars of the show
The farm has already helped Dara, a former tuk tuk driver, qualify as a chef; Sompah, a young girl who supported her elderly parents, become a teacher; and Sokha (pictured), a hotel doorman, complete his business degree and become the manager of the Happy + Co Farm. And this is just the beginning...Shop vegetables
