Doi Mek Farm
Our first farm, Doi Mek, which means “Cloudy Hill” in Thai language, was established in 2011 on the lush green hillsides of Chiang Dao. Today, it’s home to over 140,000 coffee trees.
Doi Mek Farm’s truly natural forested grounds is a great way to learn more about coffee production and Thailand’s northern landscape, even if you are not a coffee or tea lover.
At Doi Mek the main crop is coffee, but tea lovers will be delighted to know that the land is also shared by tea trees. Doi Mek’s beautiful hillside locale covers 300 Rai (119 Acres) with an elevation of 1,000 – 1,400 meters above sea level with the forest canopy providing shade over pesticide-free soil, which allows for organic growing conditions at an average 28˚ centigrade.
What began as 25,000 coffee trees has grown to between 140,000 – 150,000 trees tended by a team of over 20 staff and farmers, while its tea trees have numbered at a stable 30,000, yielding an annual 110 tonnes of coffee cherry (in two varieties) and 15 tonnes of tea leaves, respectively.
