The originally 2-3 Ha. paddy fields have now been expanded to 6 Ha. The great quality rice produced by the group is called “Tiandong Rice.” During 2014 and 2018, 168 kinds of birds were recorded in this area, nine of which are on the IUCN Red List.
The Farm also serves food by Mama Tian Restaurant. Besides Tiandong Rice, the most popular fermented bean curd, rice alcohol, and melon pickles are pickled by Tiandong Rice. With these ingredients, the Restaurant serves several melon flavor dishes, such as melon chicken soup, melon minced meat, melon steamed fish, etc.
Paddling bucket boats and bamboo rafts are a highlight of the Farm, activities which are inspired by his own childhood experience in the paddy field. When heavy rain submerged the fields, children would use the seedling buckets as boats to race in the field. Adults would also lay out their nets in the water and row out at night to harvest their catch.” These joys of labor from Guan Yaojin’s childhood have now been developed into an enjoyable experience for children.
