The scenic Jim Thompson Farm, only open to visitors during the peak of the cool season from mid-December to mid-January and offers families a wonderful (but long) day trip from Bangkok. Originally started to support Jim Thompson’s silk production business, the farm has since evolved into a popular agro-tourism attraction in Korat, featuring mulberry plantations, fruit orchards, flower gardens and more. Farm tours cover the life cycle of silkworms and silk farming process, as well as the vegetable plots, including a giant pumpkin patch. Visitors can also mill and winnow rice using traditional methods, and take home their self-processed rice.
