Ecological Farm
Welcome to the Tropical Ecological Farm. You are visitor number .

The Tropical Ecological Farm was started by the British scientist, Dr. Thomas R. Preston, 6 years ago. The idea was to create a farm that used everything it produced, and to make the best use of what was available locally, rather than depend on bought and imported inputs. The farm has served as a test lab to develop techniques for livestock production which are both kind to the environment and beneficial to small farmers and their families.

The Tropical Ecological Farm is located on the campus of the University of Agriculture and Forestry, Thu Duc, Ho Chi Min City, Vietnam.
