Details

Learn about the art of rice cultivation, rice field irrigation, and the corresponding land management system known as SUBAK. Familiarize yourself with the local belief system embodied by the many shrines and temples built around the farmland and dedicated to the Gods and Goddess of fertility and prosperity. Bali Agritour uses a creative traditional farming method to preserve their culture and the environment by using compost fertilizer, buffaloes, or traditional tractors for plowing and ancient husking mortars instead of chemical fertilizers. In addition to learning about the local method of farming, you can also enjoy other pastoral activities such as a trek through the rice paddies or trying freshwater fishing. At the end of the farming experience, you will prepare local dishes along with your host. These yummy dishes are the staple of the locals making for another great insight into how the locals live and eat. You will finish up the day with a cup of coffee made from freshly roasted local beans. By joining this activity you are directly helping the sustainability of Bali's environment and supporting the livelihoods of the small traditional farmers.

Unique traditional farming and cooking

Bali Agritours is an experience like no other. I visited with my wife and three young kids (3, 9 and 10). It was an amazing day that had something for everyone. The kids loved walking through the rice paddies, fishing and making and eating sate chicken for lunch. Drinking fresh coconut water right off the tree was a nice treat as well. More importantly, they learned about how food ends up on the table - the fish they caught was eaten for lunch. My wife and I loved the cooking (e.g. banana root soup) in addition to actually planting rice seedlings and spending time with some of the locals. In particular, Gede runs the place and was an amazing host. He and his staff were so welcoming and made us feel like family. If you are looking in addition to the monkeys, beaches and temples, Bali Agritours is authentic farm to table experience and so much more. Highly recommend!

Great day with genuine local people We were looking for something a bit different and away from the general tourist attractions and found this gem. We were not disappointed. Gede and his wife met us at our villa, in Sukawati with no additional cost. Most organisations did not want to pick up from where we were staying as it was a bit out of the way. We had a good trip to the farm and enjoyed the experience with all that it involved. It was a chance to get up close and personal with the traditional farming life. Don't expect to keep clean as you need to get involved and muddy in the rice paddies, walking through the fields and picking fresh salad vegies as well as many herbs. Learn about their uses and how they are grown. seeing how food is prepared in the traditional way on the outdoor fires was a treat, and sitting and roasting our coffee gave a different appreciation for the flavours. From helping make the satay, catching the fish, collecting the greens, grinding the herbs and spices and planting rice it was a fun interactive experience. It would certainly be something special for families to do together. We thoroughly enjoyed the day and the conversation.

Must Try Local Balinese Activity! Friends If you are tired or bored of those temple hoping, island hoping and etc, why not try to be like a Balinese who lives by the nice and soothing paddy field? Bali Agritours is one of the hidden gems where you can experience to be a local who lives by harvesting the rice field for life. Not only this, they also provide fishing experience and harvesting of naturally self sown herbs and vegetables. The Bali Agritour is a collaboration of two local senior citizen who are very knowledgeable and experienced in the activity the provided. You may even cook from the harvested vegetable and fish you get from the pond! Do try the Satay Ikan and other delicacies. You may even ask for some fresh blended fruit juice, roselle and coffees! Highly recommended for family and Friends who opt for a true village life activity.
