SERVICES (Mon-Sat 7am-6pm; closed on Sundays)
Apart from trying to grow nutritious, organic food for our local communities, and where possible delivering to people's homes,we also aim to educate people about organic farming through participating in farming activities.
We can make same-day deliveries to anyone living in the Mui Wo area between the hours of 7am-6pm from Monday to Saturday. Please note we are closed on Sundays. We also deliver to other parts of Lantau, such as Tung Chung, Discovery Bay, Tong Fuk, and any other of the South Lantau villages if suitable locations and times can be organised, as for these areas we don't deliver to people's homes due to the difficulty of transporting large amounts of vegetables about. A minimum total order of $100 (not $100 for each person) is required for deliveries outside Mui Wo. There is a $10 charge, and we usually need one day's notice. Just contact us by email (see Contact Us) or Facebook: Farm
and we'll do our best to accommodate you.
Vegetables,Fruit and Herbs
In an age when fast food and supermarket convenience is taken for granted, it can be difficult to re-educate ourselves into buying local, in-season food, especially if we're not familiar with some of the vegetables. We hope to entice people to try angled loofahs, silk gourds and water spinach, as well as the more familiar vegetables like lettuce, cabbage, broccoli, eggplant, sweet potatoes and beans. We also have a range of fine herbs, including chervil, rosemary, basil, oregano, chives, mint and Italian parsley, depending on season, of course.
We have fewer fruits, but bananas, mulberries and passionfruit are occasionally available.
Switch off the TV and indulge yourself with some delicious local foods that will bring your taste buds back to life!
We give an introduction to organic farming for school students, which can be adapted according to the age of the students and requirements of the school. A short, one-hour programme can be organised, or we have a three-hour programme in which we highlight some of the differences between chemical and organic farming; focus on the stages of compost-making; talk about the importance of bees as pollinators and show the inside of a working hive; get the students to prepare and plant a vegetable bed; and, depending on how long you stay, finish off by making scarecrows.
We also offer weekend or holiday activities to encourage kids to get away from the computer and spend some time in the countryside. If you want to get your kids in touch with nature for a while, bring them along for 1,2, or 3 hours. You will need to bring your own snacks and drinks, and it's more enjoyable if there is a small group of children rather than just one or two individuals. We have various activites, including:
1 - composting and planting
2 - making a scarecrow
3 - dipping for tiddlers in the local stream
4 - art work using items collected from nature
5 - square-foot gardening for rooftops or balconies
6 - observing bees in a working hive
All of this can make an enjoyable setting for kids' birthday parties. Bring your own food and drinks, and get the kids doing some fun activities on the farm.
