About Tra Que Vegetable Village

What sets Tra Que Vegetable Village apart from its counterparts is the absence of any chemicals or harsh fertilizers used in the growing process. This mean less harmful, fresher and cleaner produce to your table, ensuring you will only be consuming food the best of quality.

Instead of using these chemicals, rather the farmers use a special type of algae found in the nearby lagoon in Tra Que. Each morning the locals head to the lagoon and harvest the algae to assist with the growing of vegetables.

Lastly because of the rich soil in Tra Que Vegetable Village it also assists with the growing of produce, ultimately resulting in the 8 tons of vegetables sold solely from this village each year.

The tour they run to the village is not free, though you do get a really hands on experience, which for me would have been worth the money.

Alternatively, you can just simply ride your bicycle or walk around the pathways. There are plenty opportunities to people watch and you will for sure be impressed by the immense producing grounds and the techniques they used. I know I was and I am from the agriculture based country of New Zealand. Just remember to bring your camera!
