Sheep and hydroponics farm in Maenam

Sheep and hydroponics farm in Maenam


Recently we visit the sheep and hydroponics farm in Maenam on a regular base.

The sheep farm is a great trip to make with your children in this very child friendly sheep farm! We mainly go for the hydroponics (a subset of hydroculture and is a method of growing plants using mineral nutrient solutions, in water, without soil. Terrestrial plants may be grown with their roots in the mineral nutrient solution only, or in an inert medium, such as perlite or gravel) and buy various sorts of green salad!

An overview over the sheep farm

The sheep farm has obviously a few sheep running around, but also a few goats and some rabbits. For children a great day out, with plenty of opportunities to interact with the animals, feed them and play at the various playgrounds at site.

Some of the hydroponics

The sheep farm is literally surrounded by hydroponics, the main attraction for us. Currently one kilo of mixed salad greens or hydroponic produce costs as little as 120.-THB. A very good deal indeed and we can make 3 large salads out of this. Which we do on a regular base now. A healthy food choice as well!
When you wander through the hydroponics part it almost feels as the greenhouses in the Netherlands but without the glass.

More hydroponic produce

There's also a restaurant on the premises at the sheep and hydroponics farm in Maenam, where you can order drinks and various great salads. It's a nice place to kick back, relax and keep an eye out on the kids or the young ones can play with toys and a small playground at the restaurant.
The restaurant can also be used for birthday parties of your little ones!

The sheep pen

The prices are very decent, 40.-THB for a child and 80.-THB for an adult to visit the sheep and other animals and use the facilities and playground within the farm grounds.

A view on the restaurant

The location of the sheep and hydroponics farm in Maenam is fairly easy to find, at the traffic lights in Maenam at Soi 4, turn away from the ocean, towards Wat Maenam and just before the Wat or temple entrance, you hang a left and follow the road until you arrive at the sheep farm after about a kilometer at most.

Inside the restaurant

There are excellent posts along the side of the road, guiding you to the sheep farm. Very easy to follow. Once you find this, you can find your way back to the main ring road via various different ways that lead to Maenam Soi 3 and 2.
