We are very excited to share our adventure of opening up the first Buffalo Dairy in Laos with you! It has been an exciting process with every day a new challenge or surprise, and we are pleased to say that we are close to our launch!
Our dairy will be located in Muang Khay Village (Ban Muang Khay in Lao language), right on the road to Kuang Si Waterfall! We have been getting everything ready to welcome our first buffalo – our first few will be arriving this week!
We have over 4 hectares of land in Muang Khay. Our first job was to clean up the mess left behind by the previous renters – endless plastic garbage bags and tubes dug right into the ground. We had no idea what we were in for!
It took us 5 days and over 15 staff in the heat of Laos in May (over 40°C/104°F) to collect all of the rubbish. Just look at how much garbage we collected on just the first day of work!!
No need to worry, our sustainable and environmentally friendly business will look after the land much better!
We are planning to post our farm and dairy updates here, as well as share the story of how we got to where we are, so please check back for more blog posts!
