Our farm in the province of Yilan has been farming and producing tea for generations. Since childhood we have lived and worked together with nature, and within our village self-sufficiency is the normal way of life. My parents are experienced and much esteemed farmers, and their tea making techniques are very revered. At 400m altitude, far away from any factories, our 5 acre farm uses a long history of organic methods to primarily produce green tea, as well as tea tree, pineapple and rice. We learn and cooperate with nature, and insist on keeping our land as eco-friendly as possible. We also hope to exchange experiences with those who have great interest and love for farming. We hope you can feel at home here at our farm working together with us. We welcome you to join and exchange your cultures with us.
