WORKING HOLIDAY AT TOUCHENG LEISURE FARM

 

Return to Nature’s Embrace

Have you ever pondered about the co-existence of man, and earth;

When over-development surrounds us with dirty waters, and polluted air?

Have you ever wanted to escape from the cities, to nature;

When over-burdened with the fast-paced lifestyle, and mounting stress?

Here, we have the closest retreat away from Taipei—

This, is where nature meets man; where you forget the hustle and bustle.

This, is where mountains meet the sea; where valleys cleanse the tired soul.

This is a natural paradise beside the metropolis.

This is Toucheng Leisure Farm.

 

Learn from the Nature

We are all humble beings against the grandeur of Mother Earth. It is from the solar terms that we understand the practice of ploughing in Spring, sowing in Summer, harvesting in Autumn and storing in Winter; it is from hands-on farming that we can truly empathize with the Chinese saying “every grain in your plate is the fruit of the farmers’ hard labour”.

 

Working Holiday

Riding on the trend of working holidays, Toucheng Leisure Farm offers you an opportunity to work in the the farm in exchange for meals and accommodation. It is hoped that through this experiential learning can we promote farming, and allow like-minded individuals interested in agriculture to understand more about it and learn from each other. If you are looking for an unconventional retreat, a working holiday at Toucheng Leisure Farm could well be for you.

 

Crops in the Farm

Crops of the farm vary across seasons, but here are some examples of what we have:

Fruits—Kumquat, Tangerine, Calamansi, Pomelo, Wax apple, Peaches and Plums etc.

Vegetables—Water spinach, Leek, Roselle, Sweet potato leaves, Cucumber, Eggplant etc.

Others—Rice, Makino bamboo forest, Landscaping plants etc.

 

 

TOUCHENG LEISURE FARM WELCOMES YOU ONBOARD

 

On the fields, you will experience the satisfaction from your sweat and labour; after work, you can take stroll around the farm or fish by the pond; and as the night falls, bask in the sounds of nature and let them be your lullaby.

If you are wondering how you could spend your rest days, many exciting activities await! To name but a few: surfing at the beach of Wai’ao, enjoying the sea view at No.9 Café, paragliding for the more adventurous, and not to forget savoring the seafood at Daxi Fish Harbour.
