Nongchun Town Ecological Education Farm occupies an area of about 5 hectares and was formally opened for operation in 2000. Besides growing organic vegetables, the Farm keeps chickens using a flat floor breeding method, and the Farm features the largest butterfly garden in Southern Taiwan. It is a classroom of nature focusing on the “rural village experience” in combination with “butterfly ecology.” The Farm has beautiful scenery and subtly presents the life of traditional farmers.
In addition to actual production, the Farm provides a series of activities for adults and children to learn about the precious and vigorous rural cultural assets while participating in leisure activities. Visitors can walk around in open chicken coops to feed chicken and pick eggs. You can walk on soil and grow and pick vegetables in the vegetable garden as well as try DIY steamed bread using a kang yao (earth oven). You can even witness the change of tradition and modern and understand the culture of farmers and the special life experience at the specially built “agricultural tool” exhibition area. In the intellectual, emotional, and interesting trip to a rural village, you’ll get to know more about the connection between agriculture and people and feel the beauty of Taiwan.
No chemical fertilizers and herbicides are sprayed at all. Different vegetables and wild vegetables are planted according to the season, such as: equatorial cherry grass, white purslane, white sweet potato leaves, purple sweet potato leaves, kidney grass, ginseng, white phoenix, red phoenix, etc.
The natural flat rearing method gives chickens a walk space, provides sand for sand bathing, and perches for the chickens to rest at night, and also allows guests to get close to the chickens and interact with each other to further understand the ecology of the chickens.
