 This time we selected five types of farm, are "flower", "fruit", "ecology", "grain" and "vegetable." Among each category, we have selected more representative of the farm. Since there are many small farmers in Pingtung. We would like to visit a few more, but because of the limited funding and time, so we just picked nine farms to make an introduction. Each farm has different mode of operation patterns. They all operated the farm and conformed to the laws of nature. They  find the best natural control pest methods and let us feel the nature going great.

We are also actively involved in the implementation of many farms course. We not only experienced the farmer's hard work, but also understood that each link has a lot of tricks. It is difficult to understand, if we just to see with the eyes.
