Buffalo Dairy Farm


Buffalo Dairy Farm

Founded in 2014 by two American friends lament­ing the lack of cheese in Laotian cuisine, this dairy farm has grown rapidly. Each buffalo is rented from local farmers, providing them with an income and the dairy with a source of milk. The Laotian diet is devoid of dairy, and curious locals began to sample some of the farm’s products – milk, cheese, yogurt, etc. Word spread quickly, and what began as a pair of odd foreigners selling foreign food exploded into a fully-fledged business. The Buffa­lo Dairy now supplies dairy products to local restaurants and hotels, with plans to expand internationally with support from the Chinese government and Japanese investors. Daily tours give visitors a glimpse into life on this  remarkable farm, and a chance to learn its incredible story. Every tour ends with free ice cream and a chance to sample other products.
