The little farm sanctuary Project was founded and organized by Arnon Noah in early of May 2016. Arnon has helped to improve the soil and set the landscape plan to make this beautiful local farm friendly. At our little farm, we are helping and caring for many animals in the farm sanctuary such as sheep, goats, pigs, chickens, geese, ducks, rabbits, dogs, cats and many other animals. It makes us happy to see the animals within our compound. In our farm, we have space for playing, eating, walking and relaxing.
The local farm sanctuary is a non-profit organisation. We are here to help provide a safe home for the furry friends to make them feel safe and happy also to allow the worldwide traveler to come for learn more about Thai traditional culture. The purpose is to live in conjunction with nature and whilst working to save the environment around the farm.
The little farm sanctuary is a situated in a rural village in Suanphung suburbs of Ratchaburi Province. The village features traditional culture on the simple life and beautiful area of the countryside. . The town is an area of high ground surrounded by mountains, and adjoining the Thai - Burmese border, about 2.5 hours from Bangkok. It is an ideal haven for those who search an escape into nature.
