Overview

See how famous Kampot Pepper - Green, Black, Red, and White - is produced, without chemical fertilizers or insecticides, taking a tour in Cambodian, English, French, German, Japanese, or Spanish. We use solar and wind energy. We have one simple bungalow - inquire for prior arrangements. We can be reached from Kep (or Kampot) by tuk-tuk or taxi; many visitors come with locally rented motorscooters

I found Sothy’s Pepper Farm interesting, as I had never thought about where pepper comes from! You can see the whole process, from vine to pepper pot. There is a cafe and a small shop.

Amazing free tour with a guide (different languages are available based on volunteers spoken languages) about how pepper is grown and the whole (surprisingly) long process that is undertaken before it's ready to be eaten! There's pepper plants, pineaple plants, lemongrass; a store where you...More

The farm is simple, but very well kept. They have a very clear and objetive tour showing why Kampot Pepper is one of the best in the world. The food is simple and veeeery tasty, specially those preprared with their pepper. A very nice experience.
