(Mandarin version at bottom)


Located on the Changbin Township Hill in Taidong, not far from the Eleventh line, there is a large area of woods in the mountains, which is located in a quiet and isolated residential "Zhuhu Mountain Residence". In fact, it is not right to say that Zhuhu Mountain Residence is a residential accommodation. The "Zhuhu Mountain Residence" is a residential accommodation, a large friendly farm, and more importantly, a whole natural ecological forest area.


Lai Jintian, the owner of Zhuhu Mountain Residence, returned home to the Zhuhu Mountain Area of Binxiang, Taidong County, in 1986. At first, he simply wanted to accompany his mother to take over farming at home. Originally, he was used to farming. Because he contacted the ecological teacher of the East Coast Landscape Management Department, he began to contact the ecology and serve as an ecological commentator in the area. He also began to pay attention to the natural ecology and decided to use the natural farming method to manage orchards.



Typhoon Tim hit Changbin Township in 1994, and almost all the plants and living space in Zhuhu Mountains were destroyed. However, the crisis is a turning point. Lai Jintian takes this opportunity to rethink the relationship between land, man and nature. Lai Dage re-planned Zhuhu Mountain Residence as a "mixed orchard", mixing the tree species originally on the mountain with different types of fruit trees in the Zhuhu Park. In this way, Lai hopes to restore the diversity of mountain forests. Over the past 20 years, Lai Dage has planted nearly 10,000 native tree species suitable for Changbin climate in two-thirds of the land, which is oriented to the symbiosis and prosperity of ecology and environment.


Nowadays, Lai Dage still insists on the cultivation method of friendly environment and creates an ecological farm in Zhuhu Mountain Residence, which is symbiotic and prosperous with the environment. All the way from the eleventh line to the mountain, the left and right sides are like forest environment, full of diverse forests and ecology. Entering "Zhuhu Mountain Residence" can find primitive tranquility and pure natural food. This fruit tree does not spray medicine, artificial weeding, God's irrigation, wait for natural ripening, so that the fruit emits a natural rich aroma.


位於台東長濱鄉山上,距離台11線不太遠的山區中,有一大片的樹林中,坐落了一個與世隔絕寧靜的民宿「竹湖山居」。其實說竹湖山居是民宿也不太對,「竹湖山居」是民宿,更是一大塊的友善農場,更應該說是一整片的自然生態林區。

竹湖山居主人賴金田自1986年返鄉回到台東縣長濱鄉竹湖山區,當初單純地想陪伴母親到接手家中農業,原本是慣行農業耕種,因接觸東海岸風景管理處的生態老師,開始接觸生態,擔任在地的生態解說員,也開始注重自然生態,決心改用自然農法經營果園。

1994年提姆颱風重創整個長濱鄉,竹湖山居植物、居住空間近乎全毀。然而,危機就是轉機,賴金田藉此機會,重新思考土地、人與自然的關係。賴大哥重新將竹湖山居規劃成「混種果園」,將原本於山上的樹種與不同類型的果樹,混種在竹湖園區內。賴大哥希望以此方式,恢復山區森林的多樣性。二十多年來,賴大哥在三分之二的土地上除保留原生樹種外,還又種植近萬棵適合長濱氣候的原生樹種,朝向生態與環境共生共榮的樣貌。

現在,賴大哥仍然堅持友善環境的耕作方式,在竹湖山居打造一個與環境共生共榮的生態農場。一路從台11線往山上開,左右兩側如同森林環境,充滿多樣性的樹林與生態。進入「竹湖山居」,能夠找到原始的寧靜,更能夠找到純淨自然的食物。這裏的果樹不灑藥、人工除草、老天爺灌溉、靜候自然熟成,令水果散發自然濃郁香醇的本味。
