Sloane’s has been working closely with the Mae Fah Luang Foundation advising them on a new Doi Tung project using a special breed of pig gifted to the foundation. The Chinese breed called a Meishan was given to the hill tribes in the Chiang Rai area by the Mae Fah Luang Foundation and over the past few decades they have been raised in the hills of Northern Thailand.

As part of the foundation’s Doi Tung sustainability projects, the pigs have been raised on their permaculture farms, eating spare Macadamia and producing excellent compost which is then used for Doi Tung’s various products and to keep the Mae Fah Luang Gardens in Chiang Rai healthy. A great example of using the land to create healthy pigs, and using pigs to create healthy soil, sustainability at its best.
