Grandma’s Fruits Farm | Thailand


Grandma's Fruits Farm | Thailand

Last week, my mum took us to visit her Fruits Farm. We set off early in the morning as to avoid the Sun heat, around 8am. When we got there my mum got the kids busying at feeding the fish with some fish food pellets. The problem was that there was only one trowel between them. Ethan & Evelyn could not wait and just used their bare hands as a trowel.

When the kids emptied the fish food bucket, we strolled around the fruits farm and discovered that one of the main fruit grown there was lime. Lime is a becoming more and more in demand for a healthy lifestyle alternative. Here, mum shown Ethan how to pick the ripped lime off the lime tree. He was very good at it. He could totally work there for his Summer job when he is a little grown up I guess – haha 😉

Amongst, many other fruits we stumbled upon mangos and star gooseberry. If you are intrigued of what star gooseberry are then I have written a little blog post here for you to find out more.

I’ve also learnt that land is so precious and every inches are used. These concrete tunnels along the gravel road are used as plant buckets for housing small tree such as lime and other herbs.

Ethan finally got his solo water ride with his Great-Uncle, as he irrigate water on to the cultivated crop-stripe of lands on both side of his floats. ‪#‎ExplorerKids‬ If you would like to see the black and white version please pop over to my Instagram.

Whilst Ethan was on his ride – I was able to capture this image of my mum and Evelyn stood side by side. I love this photo of them together. You could see that Evelyn is a little jealoous of Ethan as she is too small for the water ride. Bless her.

When we got back, Ethan wanted to taste the lime that he had picked. So I cut it in half and got some salt. His impression of the sourness was so immensely funny! I guess – not long now until he’ll be doing it with vodka. Haha

I have also saved the fourth sequence photo of this on: My Sunday Photo: Lemon Squeezie. Please pop by to see his reaction.

Our morning has been a good one and for lunch mum took us to another floating market – this one is not in Bangkok and so there are no foreigners (Farlangs) at all. But this is for another post entirely which I will post to you soon.

Have you been to a fruit farm before? Where did you go?

For more photos of the event, please follow us on Instagram and/ or our Facebook.

    I have only been to my Grandparent’s coconut farm in Phils., but looking through at this fruit farm sound so interesting. I miss mangoes a lot, the type we get back home which is really sweet. E&E really enjoyed spending time with your family and exploring the place. Lovely post! #FabFridayPost

    • 25/04/2016 / 12:41 pm

      Wow! Coconut farm! That’s awesome! I would love to go and see a coconut farm one day. Ethan ate mango everyday when he was in Thailand. Grandma kept buying them for him. lol!

    What a fabulous experience for your children. We went back to Africa a couple of years ago and the children thoroughly enjoyed it – I’m so glad we got the opportunity to show them where they were born. My in-laws also have a fruit farm in Portugal – it’s an amazing place and there nothing like eating fresh good straight from the land! Beautiful pics, as always! xx #fabfridaypost

        Wow! That’s amazing! Being born elsewhere and having raise in a completely different country. Yes, I agree nothing like eating fresh good straight from the land! I would love to see pics of your in-laws fruits farm too! 🙂 xx

    This looks like a wonderful experience. I love the great uncle/great nephew photo (think I’ve seen a B/W version too on either twitter or instagram which really struck me. I was lucky enough to go travelling to Thailand following my uni days and posts like this make me want to return with my kids now we have them.

    • 25/04/2016 / 12:48 pm

      Thank you so much. I couldn’t quite believed that I have captured that either. Yes, the b/w version is on IG. I think Thailand would make a great memories for the kids. 🙂

    It looks amazing, it’s some important the kids see where food comes from and very impressive he likes the sour lime x

  8. 01/04/2016 / 8:43 pm

    Oh wow, what a special experience!
    I think it’s so important to teach kids where food comes from, and what a great chance for your kiddos to learn about all sorts of fruits. This really looks like so much fun, and what beautiful photos. #fabfridaypost

    • 25/04/2016 / 12:57 pm

      Thank you Savannah. It certainly was an experience, and a very hot day out experience it was! lol!

    Wow lucky children to be able to experience this! I absolutely love Thailand, went there on honeymoon (Bangkok and Hua Hin) in 2009 and had such a wonderful time there.

    • 25/04/2016 / 1:06 pm

      I am so glad that you had a nice time on your honeymoon – wish that I could have afford a honeymoon too! 🙂

    That water ride looks like so much fun! I want to try it! What a love experience for your kiddies, making memories together. #fabfridaypost.

    • 25/04/2016 / 1:12 pm

      I really want to go on the water ride too! But I think I might be a little too big for it. haha

  14. 02/04/2016 / 4:57 pm

    Wow what an amazing experience and I love the photos! I have never been to a fruit farm but your photos make me want to book the first flight over to Thailand, amazing! #fabfridaypost

    • 25/04/2016 / 1:13 pm

      Thank you so much Laura. I wish I could win the lotto and take all my blogging friends to Thailand too! 🙂

  15. 02/04/2016 / 8:00 pm

    I’ve never been anywhere quite like that – I don’t think lavender and fruit farms in the depths of Surrey are quite the same 🙂 Thank you for sharing a magical experience.

    • 25/04/2016 / 6:04 pm

      It is a pleasure. I would love to see some pics of Surrey fruits farm. I am intrigue what they grow there. 🙂 x

    Oh wow what a fun adventure. Such an amazing experience for them as well and so great for them to be so hands on, feeding the animals and helping to pick and water the fruit. It looks so beautiful there and your pictures are gorgeous! Thank you so much for sharing with #whatevertheweather x

    • 04/04/2016 / 5:20 pm

      Thank you very much Chloe. They really do love it there. Even though Evelyn is a little jealoous of Ethan as she is too small for the water ride. Bless her. Thank you for hosting too. x

    Fab photos! You must have had a great time there with the kids and your family. Love the photo of grandma and Evelyn, she really does look a little annoyed that she doesn’t get to go on the boat, next time maybe! Poor Ethan with the lime though, don’t think he’ll be tasting that again anytime soon. Love seeing all your adventures in Thailand! Thanks so much for linking your travels up to #Whatevertheweather 🙂 x

    • 05/04/2016 / 7:33 am

      Thank you Jenny. They really do like it there. I know Evelyn loves doing her scrunchie face. lol! Thank you for hosting. xx

  21. 07/04/2016 / 4:59 pm

    Wow, your kids are having such unique experiences over there in Thailand! I can’t wait to take my son to India (my dad was Indian) and meet his Indian side of the family and experience things that don’t exist in the UK. I don’t think I’ve ever been to a fruit farm especially a tropical one like this. Looks like your kids had so much fun with your parents and learnt so much! Thanks for linking up #MyFavouriteTrip Polly x

  22. 09/04/2016 / 12:55 am

    Wow what an amazing experience! It must have been so much fun picking limes and then tasting them too 😀 Really great that your family in Thailand gets to share this with your children! #countrykids

  23. 09/04/2016 / 8:07 am

    What a fabulous experience. Wonderful to see family, and also see how exotic fruit is grown. I bet they will be talking about it for a while yet, and connecting their family with the wonderful fruit. Love the watering system and it is a brilliant photo. #CountryKids

  24. 09/04/2016 / 8:53 am

    What a fantastic experience for Ethan and Evelyn to have, it’s great that they could have such a hands on experience too. Ethan looks so excited to be having a boat ride with his great uncle, I’m sure Evelyn will be straight on there as soon as she’s big enough. Ethan’s face trying the lime is hilarious, but it’s great he was keen to try the fruits that he had helped collect. Thanks for linking up with me on #CountryKids.

    • 25/04/2016 / 9:23 pm

      Oh yes, he was so very keen to try it. He really likes lime and have it on everything now. lol! 🙂

  25. 09/04/2016 / 9:23 am

    I thought I had a left a comment on this post earlier in the week but I can’t find it so I will try again 🙂 It looks like Ethan is having such a great time and getting involved. I love his face as he is trying the lime, so funny! I hope that you are all doing ok x #countrykids

  26. 09/04/2016 / 4:05 pm

    What a lovely post, the photo of your Mum and Daughter is wonderful. Really interesting to hear and see how they go about planting, and irrigating the fruit trees. I spent a month in Thailand many years ago, and found it to be a beautiful country with wonderful people, so looking forward to coming back and reading your other posts.

    • 25/04/2016 / 9:27 pm

      Thank you very much. It is very much appreciated. Though Evelyn is looking rather too serious for her age. lol! 🙂

  27. 11/04/2016 / 9:36 am

    Calamansi! I cant help but be nostalgic everytime I would see your post! Reminds me of home. I saw the banana. We always eat on a banana leaf! #countrykids

    • 25/04/2016 / 9:30 pm

      Oh yes! We still do used the banana leaves as takeaway wraps- very eco to both the environment and economical too! 🙂
