Pillow Mountain is rich in agricultural products. There are mulberries in spring, red guava and lotus mist in summer, persimmon and dragon fruit in autumn, golden dates and citrus in winter, and peaches and plums during the early years, and flowers are especially abundant in spring. Tourists call this place “Huaguoshan”, and TV dramas and movies often film here. In addition, the natural scenery of places such as Leigongpi and the natural springs of A Lan city, guided by the unity of the local residents, form the basis of the development of the whole district, making the Pillow Mountain Recreation Agriculture Zone, which includes the three agricultural villages Zhenshan Village, Tongle Village, and Toufen Village, a model of cooperation.
What is worth admiring is not only the natural environment and agricultural products, but also the small courtyards and landscaping in front of every house, all gathered to form a beautiful leisure agricultural district. Director-General Xu Yuhao said that the villagers have a mutual understanding where each family manages not only the area of 2-3 meters in front of their door, but also the 20 meters before and after. The recreational area has developed well, attracting more people to return to their hometowns to work as flower farmers and fruit farmers, and at the same time bringing in more aesthetics, decorations and other concepts. This is not only the earliest established leisure farm in Taiwan, but also one of the most beautiful.
Features of Agricultural Tourism
There are many orchards in the “Pillow Mountain Recreational Agriculture Area”. Visitors can experience the fun of picking fruits and vegetables across the four seasons, including red guava, and DIY straw brooms. Groups can participate in the Four Season Feast. Mothers in the community transform into chefs before your eyes and introduce wonderful dishes made from the freshest local ingredients in Yilan, including golden dates, bamboo shoots, three-star spring onions, pumpkins, etc., with cherry duck, biscuits-wrapped duck, and vinegar ginger too. Honey products such as roselle not only help reduce the carbon footprint, visitors can also enjoy rare orchard meals and listen to the local conversation and learn about interesting rural culture and life.
Picking of the golden jujube fruit is a very important part of the tour, as Yilan golden jujube accounts for 90% of the national production, with a very wide range of application whether it is made into golden jujube rice bread, golden jujube ribs, or the production of preserved jujube, jujube vinegar, etc. For flowers, succulents in leisure farms have become very popular in recent years. Leisure farms with insectivorous plants such as pitcher plants and Venus flytraps, which are hard to find on the market, are also very much worth visiting.
