The Village & Rice Field Day Tour in Tabanan, Bali
The Organic Farm
Just a 10 minutes drive from the more touristic Heritage rice fields of Jati Luwih.
For decades this village has been producing organic red rice, fresh fruits and vegetables, simply because the farmers couldn’t afford chemical fertilizers and pesticides.
