Locates around Protected content north east of Ho Chi Minh city, 28 hectares of land belong to Binh & Ut at Da Trang village, Song Binh commune, Bac Binh district, Binh Thuan province promise lots of agricultural potentials.
Beside 15 ha planting around Protected content fruit trees, and 2 ha planting chili, will be harvested one month later, Binh & Ut are looking for investors for remaining land.
Resigned from a real estate job in HCMC with high income, commute by car, Binh accepted to come to a far away place, sleep in tent with oil lamp, fighting with sunlight & wind, determine to do agriculture.
Binh wants to build a modern farm with few ideas below:
+ Planting simultanously short term and long term tree, using the short term to support the long term, currently Binh selects nanfenmiju – short term, chili – long term. These 2 kinds of tree are fit with weather here, high profitable, as well as Binh has deep understanding and good skills to plant.
Chili is easy to die if there are lots of rain, so this time at Mekong Delta, people can’t plant chili, lead to price of chili increase. Taking advantage of not raining at Binh Thuan, Binh plants chili.
+ Planting simultanously short term requires higher initial investment, but save time, effort and management. At the same time, save land: long term tree is higher, short term tree is shorter.
Time to plant chili up to harvest is 6 months.
Time to plant nanfengmiju up to first time harvest is 1.5 years.
+ Tourism agriculture:
Locate at the middle of well-known tourism destinations of Vietnam: Phan Thiet beach and Da Lat, Binh plans to make his farm to become the resting stop of tourists, on the way Phan Thiet – Da Lat.
To do this, Binh contacted Trien – who has many years of experiences in tourism industry, to help promoting to tourists in the future.
+ Agricultural real estate:
With the advantage of the land is higher than sea water level 200m, there is a natural water stream pass by, the land of Binh & Ut will increase value, when sea water level increases, Mekong Delta will be in danger, people will look for higher place to do agriculture.
Binh wants to and plans to buy the whole surrounding land, to expand to 60ha, make the untouched land to become ready-to-use land with water supply. People just need to come, rent the land and plant what they want.
But he wants to build his farm successfully first, so people have examples to see.

Binh & Ut are looking for investor for their farm with investment range from few hundred million VND to few billion VND. Depend on the investment, they will use with following purposes:
+ Planting on all current land which is still empty.
