The Experience

Yup, Hong Kong has farms ^^ We are building an organic farm in busy Hong Kong, you will stay with us in the cottage inside the farm, very quiet and peaceful, but 10 minutes bus ride can take you to the busy city. Jacob is a farmer, Iris is in Finance, we are friendly, very outgoing, easy to get along. Please write to me if you are looking for a new way of exploring Hong Kong. Farming is not a easy job, think clearly before you apply. Cheers!

It's hard to leave a review as a helper for Iris and Jacob because they are actually family to me, I stayed 3 full months with them in their lovely Hong Kong farm, they were extremely patient with me, took care of me when I got sick, they were extremely generous regarding food, flexible with time management and tasks, the location is stunning and peaceful, specially considering the difficult situation Hong Kong is going through, you can easily get into the city as well if you want and need to, the accomodations are also cosy and they definitely care that you're comfortable. Awesome place!

Is unbelievable that places like those still exist in HK, nice air, nice view, just to many mosquitoes 🦟😅; Iris ad Jacob are really nice and caring people they make you fell at home, there are many different things do be done, and for sure is a physical work and you have to love to be uncomfortable and dirty! Become a farmer for some weeks!
