  • Description

    Description

    It's a place you could go hiking and camping among the magnificent mountains covered with bamboo forest.
    - Bamboo sprouts
    - Tea leaves
    - Peaches
    are the best souvenirs if you have the chance to stop by.

    We have several
    - beautiful waterfalls
    - Divine tree forest
    - River Tracing spot
    around where you should never miss out

    What’s more, If you are interested in primitive living, you might have the chance to
    - go to the natural night market in the forest
    - meet some local indigenous hunter.

    And our daily mission is to provide people fresh and yummy veggies which carefully nursed by our mother nature :
    - Birds as the guard,
    - the microbes as the doctor
    - the spring water, the dew ,
    - the wind, the sunshine and your big hand

    Before decided to stay here as a farmer, I love to WWOOFing around, get to know different culture , meet people and share the experience about their life style.

    My daily life is farming in the field, but also loving to do cooking and any kinds of DIY stuff (especially natural building, and handcraft)

    My manager Hank is the expert at nursing the bamboo sprout and we are trying to learn more about the variety use
    of bamboo, if you have any interest or experiences, please let us know.

    Hank & his spouse with their energetic kid sometimes will stop by, recently they are running a traditional house in Daxi as a fusion space for people to realize the culture , to taste the local food, to display artist's craft and you are welcome to be the teacher if you have some special skill and talent could perform to the people.

    Sometimes we have an outdoor woodworking class for the kids to build their tree house. Occasionally, we host various activities for people to come. And anybody is welcome to share their talent and experiences here. Please enjoy your time during your stay.
