Ice Cream at Hejia Ranch

Big Cow
A couple weeks back Cathy and I checked out the Hejia Ranch [禾家牧場] on Yinghangshan [銀行山].  The ranch was established twenty years ago and specializes in dairy products such as milk, ice cream, yogurt, and popsicles.  Yinghangshan is located on Baguashan [八卦山], making this a popular spot for families and cyclists.

Directions: If coming from Changhua, travel along 74 jia [74甲] and turn left at Line 139 [139線].  You’ll see a sign pointing up to Yinghangshan.  Here’s its location on Google Maps.

  1. man, i really need to get out of taipei and explore more! now that i’m back for good i gotta figure out how to get out into the countryside where there’s less smog and more fresh air.

  2. Definitely do yourself a favor and get out of Taipei City as often as you can! The city takes a serious toll on one’s physical and mental health! Luckily there’s a great transportation network to help escape!
