  • Description


    2014 Yam harvest is around the corner!

    We need more helping hands from late November till December or mid January. During this time, there's a great chance to meet more local people and at the same time have the opportunities to take part in many outdoor events. Feel free to contact us if you are interested. :D

    If you are into a different farming experience, it'll be it!

    We grow rice and we have already built up our reputation on web. Besides rice, we are eager to try different plantation and also very into developing processed products of rice. In our place, you can not only learn the reality of farming, but also engage in local communities.

    Adding to that, we have experience in veg production of CSA operation, even though we have scaled down our veg production and focus on rice, we are still very willing to share our know-how to whoever is interested.

    From time to time, there might be young students and families coming to our site for experiencing farming or just to have personal gatherings.

    We also hold different activities in different seasons, and we are trying to build up our brand from these activities so that more people can be invited to know more about agriculture.

    We are not only close to local government and local farmers' association but also to the public.

    The last hit: easy transport to city.

    About accommodation: helpers will be settled in dorm room and sometimes might have to share the room (no beds) with our friends.

  • Help


    Volunteers would be asked to do farm works mainly, details depending on the progress or seasonal projects. We'll also teach volunteers to do pickles or local cuisines.
    **There are quite a few changes in the factory so the accommodation site is a bit messy. I'll still do my best to make volunteers comfy.**
    ***Since I'm getting busy, there might be not much time for me to cook so volunteers might be asked to prepare meals on their own.***

    Volunteers from Taiwan are welcome here.
