Chuang Hsueh-Fu, who used to work in the construction industry, established Mushroom Garden. Due to his health, he settled in Xinshe with the beautiful mountains and clear water around him and got involved in mushroom growing. He said that in the ecological cycle, mushrooms play the role of decomposers, helping plants absorb water and nutrients through symbiosis and coexistence. Mushrooms can convert pressure into energy for growing and breeding, completing the ecological circulation.
Although mushrooms are the decomposers in the bottom layer of the food chain, they have amazingly strong energy. The Farm grows up to 13 different kinds of mushrooms in shiitake bags, including regular mushrooms, brown swordbelts, king oyster mushrooms, oyster mushrooms, black fungus, ganodermas, and more. Adults and children visit here to learn about the ecological function of mushrooms and the different types of mushrooms through appearances.
Tourists can pick mushrooms on the farm, feel the texture of mushrooms, and have a fun time. They can also experience the feeling of a mushroom by putting on a raincoat while a pressure water jet falls on them to understand more about how mushrooms grow. Under the concept of a circular economy, the Farm connects mushrooms and chickens by offering simple and interesting cooking activities, during which they can also learn more about food and agriculture.
After harvesting mushrooms, the Farm produces a series of goods, from delicately packaged dried mushrooms, mushroom crackers, mushroom chilies and other specialties, to a variety of mushroom dishes. The Farm offers a full experience, satisfying tourists’ senses.
