✔️ About us

We believe in the healing power of nature that satisfies the biophilia drive, and our farm serves as a place to heal people’s hearts through agriculture. Surrounded by mountains and with pristine streams on both sides, inhabited by crayfish that dwell only in Grade 1 water and fireflies visible in the summer, our farm remains untouched by environmental damage. Visitors to the farm often experience a sense of healing just by sitting there, thanks to its natural setting.

Our main produce is the Daebong persimmon tree, and since 2018, we have been cultivating it using natural farming methods without chemical fertilizers or pesticides. Although the appearance of our persimmons may not be as visually appealing as some, we take pride in their high sweetness compared to any other persimmon in South Korea.

I, personally, lived in the city for my entire life until 2018 when I returned to the countryside with my family to establish a healing farm. Prior to this, I spent about 15 years working as a middle school teacher. Currently, I operate the healing farm with qualifications as a clinical psychologist. I am wholeheartedly running programs to help visitors find psychological stability in our farm setting. In the hustle and bustle of modern society, I hope that individuals can find solace in nature, accepting that ‘it’s okay to slow down a bit.’ We run various healing programs not only for preventive subjects (individual and family healing) but also for special-purpose subjects (developmental disorders, schizophrenia patients, mild cognitive impairment seniors, etc.).

My life motto is ‘Let’s be warm.’ Despite being an amateur in farming, not particularly skilled in physical labor, I enjoy connecting with people, listening to their stories, and empathizing with them. If the warm-hearted could visit our farm, it would truly bring happiness.

✔️ Farming Method

Every early winter, we sow green manure seeds to manage weeds on the farm and contribute to soil enrichment. We do not use any chemical fertilizers, herbicides, or pesticides. We cultivate Daebong persimmons using only compost as fertilizer. Additionally, each late autumn, we sow green manure seeds such as barley, rye, and hairy vetch to improve soil fertility and enjoy the benefits of landscape agriculture while enhancing overall farm productivity.

✔️ Organic Lifestyle

1. Use a tumbler instead of disposable cups.
2. Use recyclable items.
3. Conserve energy.
4. Strongly oppose indiscriminate rural development
