A stone’s throw from Fengguidou [風櫃斗] is Xinyi Township’s Liujia Plum Farm [柳家梅園]. Liujia is home to a huge plum farm which covers a small hillside. You may recognize this area from China Airline’s 2008 Calendar featuring supermodel Lin Chi-ling.
In addition to the plum trees, the road from the parking lot to the farm is lined with venders selling fresh vegetables, various plum products, refreshments, and grilled mountain boar.
