This beautiful quaint village is home to about 150 farmers and 400 owners where they cultivate about 20 different types of vegetables and herbs (including mint, lettuce, basil, cilantro and broccoli among others). More than 40 hectares of land and 8 tons of Tra Que vegetables are sold every year and you will be happy to know that the vegetable grown here do not use pesticides and are not GMOs. Instead, the farmers rely on a seaweed species found in the local river that is harvested every morning. Get the chance to immerse yourself into the life of a local farmer and learn about their daily lives. The local farmers will be happy to teach you their cultivation methods and how you can protect your vegetables from insects and pests. You will also join the farmers in various gardening activities such as raking the field, sowing seeds, watering greens, transplanting, and tending the crops.

Next, you will also prepare lunch with a local family where you will have the opportunity to learn about traditional Vietnamese cuisine. Learn how to make the famous 'Tam Huu' spring roll and 'Banh Xeo' pancake, adding them to the repertoire of your own cookbook as you enjoy your lunch session together with the family. Do help yourself to the delicious food, be sure to bond with the local family and share some of your own stories over the table.
