Introduction

Highland Experimental Farm of National Taiwan University has been established since as early as 1937 during the Japanese Colonial Period. The Farm is situated at between 900m and 2,700m altitude with a total acreage of 1,092. The climate varies greatly and there are four distinct seasons at this location, and the Farm contains diverse and abundant ecological resources. For a long time, the Farm has been devoted to the teaching, researching, and demonstrative management of cold and high area horticulture, with the focus on deciduous fruit trees, alpine vegetables, temperate flowers, fruits and horticultural plants. In spring, all flowers bloom together; in summer, the plants grow branches and leaves; in autumn, the mountain is covered with red maple. The Farm is an excellent place to know and appreciate temperate and alpine plants.
In recent years, the Farm has been working on the investigation and research of the natural resources of the site, forestation and restoration, specimen collection and preservation, and other related work. In addition, since 1998, the Farm has held natural ecology camps and promoted environmental education. Moreover, the Farm acquired MOA organic certification in 2014 and promotes environmentally-friendly farming.

Characteristics

Vegetable

The vegetable cultivation zone in the farm uses “recycling resources” and “rotation farming” to grow organic vegetables, and uses the natural smell of the vegetables to repel pests, achieving a production process that does not use pesticides and fertilizers. In this way, not only does the planted spinach, beetroot, kale and other seasonal vegetables become organic and fresh, but it also achieves the concept of ecological conservation and sustainable agriculture through a friendly farming method.

Fruit

The farm is about 2,100 meters above sea level. It mainly grows apples, and uses simple greenhouses and Y-shaped pruning methods to cultivate peaches. In recent years, the introduction of “safe medication and rational fertilization” cultivation management has greatly improved the quality and sweetness of fruits. In addition, if there are inferior products after the harvest, they will be assembled and processed into jams and fruit vinegars, and hand-made gifts such as low-temperature fried apple slices will be developed. In addition to being widely acclaimed, they will also achieve the goal of cherishing food and resources.
