“Mei Feng Fun Travel”: 2018 Spring Festival at Mei-Feng Farm Begins on Mar 16

The Spring Festival is a grand celebration held annually by the NTU Highland Experimental Farm. This year, the festival will be held at Mei-Feng Farm from March 16 to April 1. The festival exhibits various flowers and provides guided tours to the farm. During this period, visitors may take the Nantou Bus’s “Puli Station-Songgang” route or “Taichung Station – Puli Station – Cingjing Farm” route to our farm. More information about bus routes and schedules can be found at http://www.ntbus.com.tw/cjfm.html.

The theme for this year’s festival is “Mei Feng Fun Travel,” and we offer a variety of activities at 8:30–15:00 every day during the festival. You can buy the tickets and get a small gift at the entrance if you take the bus to our farm. For the 2018 Spring Festival, we have planned areas devoted to specific flowers and plants. For example, visitors will have the opportunity to admire the beauty of Taiwan pleiones, ornamental cabbage, and anemone chinensis in the Temperate Flower Area, Organic Agriculture Area, and Sanyaso Area (“sanyaso” refers to wild plants growing in fields and mountains). One of the highlights this year are the guided tours offered in the Temperate Flower Area and Field Treasure Hunt Area daily every 10–20 min except lunchtime during the period.

In addition, the festival presents two special activities this year. At the Forest Conservation Activity on March 19–20, each participant will get two seedlings for free before the seedlings run out. At the Air Purification Activity on March 26–27, each visitor wearing a top or jacket with animal image(s) will receive a potted air-purifying plant before the offer runs out.

Mei-Feng Farm is located at an elevation of 2,100 m about 14.5 k into Provincial Highway 14A. Visitors planning to drive to Mei-Feng Farm are advised to make a reservation for parking space inside the farm; otherwise, they may have to park their cars around 17.5k into Provincial Highway 14A and take a shuttle bus (NT$ 40 roundtrip) to Mei-Feng Farm instead.
