Originally, RPF focussed on farmer career development together with the provision of new agricultural research and training, distribution of plant varieties and livestock to farmers.
Research results have been transferred to the farmers immediately. Formerly, RPF villages were called visiting village visited by volunteer members and researchers from various organizations .

Currently, RFP is implementin in 38 development centers located in 5 Northern provinces; Chiang Mai, Lam ung, Chiang Rai, Pa young, and Mae Hong Son, at an elevation of up to 700 meters above sea level in the watershed forest area.

RPF Development Centers aime at encouraging farmers to earn enough to be self-reliant and to live with sustainable forest. There is the demonstration of agriculture and livestock at each development center in order to be learning and training center for farmers and officers.
