Jangchon Vegetable Farm
This is one of the North Korean farms tourists can visit and specialises in growing vegetables.
It is located in Sadong District outside of Pyongyang.
The drive here takes around 20 minutes from the centre of Pyongyang.
The Taedonggang Beer Factory is located not far from the farm; you will pass it on the way.
The farm was reconstructed beginning in 2014 at the direction of the North Korean leader with the purpose of turning it into the farm of the future.
With the focus of the farm being vegetables, it has hundreds of greenhouses so that it can grow fresh produce all year round. The amount of greenhouses was significantly expanded on during the reconstruction.
As part of the reconstruction it was turned into a model farm with new or upgraded supporting facilities for the farmers. These include a health complex featuring swimming pool, barber, beauty salon and spa. The farm also has a volleyball court, roller rink, park with fish breeding pond, shop, theatre, revolutionary museum, research centre, nurseries and a school.
A typical tour of the farm usually involves visiting the revolutionary museum, a farmer’s house and one of the greenhouses, but is subject to vary depending on what the workers can make available at the time.
There is no cost to visit.
