Owner description: La Plantation is a social and sustainable family project, the perfect combination of traditional farming and modern processing. At La Plantation, we produce Black, Red, White Kampot pepper and the exclusive Fresh Salted Kampot Pepper, Red Long Pepper, Turmeric, Bird Chili and local fruits. Grown traditionally and harvested by hand, our spices are processed with high standards in quality and hygiene and are certified organic by Ecocert. Presentation, tasting and free guided tour in English, French, Khmer and Chinese. You will understand why Kampot Pepper has been elected #1 best pepper in the world. La Plantation has also a social dimension by improving the living conditions of many people in this rural area and by taking care of the primary school. You can enjoy our spices in our two restaurants (Khmer and French), or join a Khmer cooking class. You can also experience a tour in the rural countryside up to Secret Lake in a cart pulled by water buffaloes.

We hired a tuktuk driver to take us to La Plantation. We paid $20 for a return trip from Kampot. Definitely worth it. The tour at the plantation is free and you don’t need to prebook a slot. You get to learn about the plantation, taste the peppers, walk around the grounds and see all the fruit as well as pepper fields. It’s a great 1.5 hours. Your tuktuk driver will wait for you no doubt as the plantation has a hut for them all to relax in. They get some drinks and snacks too so they are not just waiting around doing nothing in the heat. You can also eat at the plantation and take a water buffalo trip. And yes, the road to the plantation is very bumpy, but all worth it.

Rented a scooter from Kampot Souvenirs and headed out here on the way to Kep. La Plantation is accessible through a long dirt road that will rattle your bones and cover you in orange dirt.

The place itself is very new and impressive, with a few restaurants, nice restrooms, and a large main open air building. The talk and tour are free and every informative, especially since you see Kampot pepper all over the country. You have the option to buy refreshments or souvenirs before and after your tour.

This place is definitely worth a visit! The road from Kampot is dusty but we enjoyed the country scenery and the friendly locals. Loved the well kept grounds of the organic farm La plantation. The free tour guide was funny and knowledgeable. You could tell he loves his job. It’s a very interesting place to witness the pepper cultivation and the labor and processes it goes through to make it to your table. We really enjoyed the whole experience :)

Firstly, the road here in bumpy with sharp rocks and unsealed. It will take a while to ride if you are a novice moped rider or have 2 people on the moped

The views are amazing the tour was highly interesting, the pepper tasting was quite fun. Beautiful scenery, some of the best we've seen

Had a 1/2 roast chicken lunch at the restaurant as well, $14 for a 2 persons meal and we were both completey full.

It’s a bit bumpy on parts of the road to get there (we went in a tuk tuk). It’s definitely worth a visit. You get shown to a big area where you can get a drink and look at the things for sale. You then get shown a presentation about the place and to taste some pepper. After this it’s a tour round. You don’t get to see in the factory bit (not sure why ) which is a shame as id like to have seen the processing. I’m glad I went as the views are amazing.
