✔️ About us
Our farm informs students and urban residents of the importance of natural ecology and environment through eco-friendly farming methods and operates a healing farm with horses, dogs, and cats. After a three-year family trip to the world, I have been operating a school for young people and teenagers since 2009, and in 2022 it has been designated as a social farm and a rural study center in Yeongwol.
Our farm also provides care for the vulnerable in social farm activities and education on basic farming activities. The school is a wooden school built in 1944 and has a residential facilities.
As I have a lot of experiences traveling around the world, I can inform foreigners of Korea well, especially about the activities on environmental issues.
✔️ Farming Experience Since 2020
✔️ Farm Type etc
✔️ Main Crop Ogafi, sweet potatoes, corn, cabbages, radishes and other household crops
✔️ Farming Method
We practice free, pesticide-free, herbicide-free, and do natural farming. I’ve been farming for three years by making and using EM and liquid fertilizer, and the soil is being well prepared.
I will not use chemical fertilizers or pesticides in the future, and I will study farmer-culture. So far, there is a difference compared to ordinary field crops, but there is pride in growing healthy crops. In particular, pepper farming works well without fertilizer or pesticides so we are promoting the brand of medicinal products.
We are practicing to become an open farm that anyone can eat while passing by.
✔️ Organic Lifestyle
Saving electricity and water, reducing food waste, making compost, reducing disposable, recycling rainwater, etc.
