We are on the outskirts of Busan, South Korea. We spend our weekends helping and talking to visitors from all over Korea and beyond that want to share strawberries or tomatoes and their culture with you, and vice versa.You will teach them about the fruit and our farm, show them proper picking techniques, then mingle with them as they partake in our enclosed greenhouse environment, and sometimes in the cafe/restaurant with food making activities. You will assist in picking fruit & gardening the plants.

During weekdays you will work with our farmer at our indoor hydroponic fruit farm. All of our farm is inside indoors, so the experience is quite pleasant regardless of weather or season. Weekdays our farmer cleans away spoiled fruit, trims the plants, picks fruit and packages it for customers who have reservations on the weekend. We all receive students from the region's public schools on science field trips.
Every weekend you will spend interacting and engaging with these visitors inside our farm and cafe. Visitors are eager to enjoy the delicious fruit, but more importantly converse with you on a personal level. For the shyer children simple conversation will satisfy their eager parents. You will also have time in the cafe to do activities with the families in a 1 on 1 environment. Opportunities like teaching children to make pizzas, family spaghetti sauces, and salsa provide you with the chance to share conversations with them and see both children and parents come alive as they bond with you in the tranquility outside of the busy city.
Other small amounts of time would be spent assisting in cleaning of our cafe, cleaning of the common areas and your bedrooms, as well as occasionally mingling with interested large families who use the farm for private BBQ parties at night. On weekdays adorable kindergartens will look at you in wonder during the weekday mornings as they do field trips here.
This may be offset by part of the cost of the accommodation offered depending on local labour laws.

We have a new (2018) awesome accommodation available for you. Beds are offered in several private detached rooms above our restaurant kitchen inside our large new greenhouse complex. You will share a room with one other person, or together as a couple. Your living space will include mattress, bedding, new floor heating, as well as cabinets for your personal items.
In addition there is a shared common space that has many amenities available to make you feel comfortable while contributing to the superb atmosphere and cultural experience at the farm. These include purified drinking water, WiFi, laundry machine, movie projector, hair dryer, and bathroom with shower. We will also provide workawayers with free shampoo, body wash, and detergent. We also have a new pingpong table because we're better than other hosts.
Available are excellent meals which will be 40% together and 60% independently. Among these available meals is a catered, seasonal, authentic, Korean lunch. You will enjoy a shared kitchen with staple foods: tea & coffee, bread, eggs, rice, kimchi, noodles, onions. As well as additional ingredients we use to cook while working at the farm. Our shared kitchen has a refrigerator, dishes, cooking utensils, and more to allow you to easily cook, or share in our cuisine when we cook at the farm. We are a 10 minute bicycle ride from a large grocery store.
We will also provide bicycles for quick commute between our green houses (about 500m apart). We also recommend using them to ride along the riverside (20m) where there is an eco park, biking trail, and sports fields that are popular with the local community. If you wish to travel into Busan or further away we are close to the local bus and Busan subway public transportation system, one of the best things about traveling in Korea.
We are located on the western edge of Busan, the 2nd largest city in Korea. It is home to many mountains, temples, beaches, shopping destinations, and restaurants indicative of both Korean and world cuisine. Our farm is a convenient 10 minute taxi ride from the local inter city bus station, which also connects to Busan’s vast subway system. From there you can quickly reach the Busan Airport in Gimhae, as well as travel into Busan, or out to other cities. This makes your off days ideal for scheduling trips to Seoul, or other parts of the country. We would be happy to share suggestions or assist in itinerary planning, or just often drive you somewhere because we feel Korea has a lot to offer a world traveler.
