  • Description

    Description

    We are a family owned organic farm in Yilan, east north Taiwan.
    My father moved to Yilan 15 years ago, since then he is devoted to grow organic crops and I follow its lead.

    We grow organic rice, vegetables and fruits.
    Sometimes we hold education program sharing our way of farming with schools or other farmers.
    Except for plants, there are animals around : we have 2 dogs 2 cats 2 goat, and chickens in the farm.
    So it's fun if you are not afraid of animals!
