We are a group of individual small-scale farmers who collaborate and support one another regularly. We aim to adopt eco-friendly farming practices as much as possible. We each have our own thinking and approach to sustainable agriculture, but with a common goal to be kinder to the environment. No chemical products are used on our farms. Our produce includes rice, taro, water bamboo shoots, vegetables, pomelos etc.
