Jim Thompson Farm Tours

For about three weeks around New Year the Jim Thompson Farm is open daily from  from 9.00 am until 5.00 pm.

In 1988, to ensure a steady and reliable supply of raw materials for silk production, the Thai Silk Company decided to invest in its own mulberry plantation and silkworm egg production center. Situated in the Pak Thong Chai district of Nakhon Ratchasima province, the project area initially covered 600 rai (about 96 hectares/237 acres).

The Jim Thompson Farm was opened to the public for the first time in 2001 and has since evolved into one of Isan's most popular agrotourism and ecotourism attractions. It is open to visitors once a year during the peak of the cool season.

The tours provides a unique opportunity for visitors to observe up close and personal the full life cycle of the silkworms and the silk farming process as part of the Isan way of life. Other highlights include a tour of the vegetable plots and ornamental plant nursery. A great variety of delicious fresh fruits and organically-grown vegetables come into season at this time of year. In addition to cut flowers and ornamental plants, a selection of fresh, high quality, organic vegetables and fruits and wholesome farm-made snack foods are also available on sale at the farm.

Jim Thompson Farm Tour 2016 is now open for public from 3 December 2015 to 8 January 2017 at Jim Thompson Farm, Pak Thong Chai District, NakhonRatchasima Province.
