Kuruma Steven brought me to Dongfeng Organic Farm for DIY of Hinoki Chopstick
Aug 2017 • Family
We joined the one day tour to Yilan County on 18Aug engaging Kuruma Travel again. Steven our driver cum guide suggested an organic farm planting pomelo fruit and got outdoor camping ground. The place is called Dongfeng Organic Farm at Dongshan village about 25 minutes from center of Yilan inward to mountain area.

We were greeted by the co-owner who took us for a walk touring the farm. Most of them are pomelo tree and fruiting in season. There also complete range of tents for rental if your interested to camp there. There is a field and surrounded by Pomelo fruit trees. After the tour, we all enrolled for doing our own pair of chopsticks from Hinoki wood. This DIY class fees is NT180 per person. I have not tried before and joined the class with all the children to enjoy the fun.

The teacher taught us on how to use sandpaper to smooth the pair of blank Hinoki wood chopsticks. There are techniques showed by teacher and we follow it carefully. After completing the smoothing, the scent of Hinoki is calming coming out from the chopsticks. Teacher taught us how to design the upper portion of the chopsticks to become uniquely yours. There are wood craving and shaping tools provided and we observed the talented teacher demonstrating it. Within 30 minutes, he completed the design and for the final finishing touch, a coat of natural olive oil was applied on the chopsticks . The results is amazing with deeper wood surface color after treatment with olive oil. We all continue to work on our masterpiece Hinoki chopsticks and finished it well. Teacher also taught us how to care and maintenance of the chopsticks. The pair of chopsticks comes with woven case printed Dongfeng organic farm.

Later, the co-owner/teacher brought us to the drink brewing counter and prepare a special coffee which blended with natural pomelo flowers. The flavor and scent of the freshly brewed pomelo coffee is very nice and smooth. He told us that he used coffee bean from Africa.

We also look for other available organic products selling at the main entrance and plentiful under Muroz brand, ranging from wash foam, shampoo, aroma therapy oil, essentials oils and cream for skin wholly based on Pomelo.

It's a wonderful experience to be able to made and design your own pairs of chopsticks.

If you are interested, feel free to contact Kuruma Steven Sun +886 930-675-038 for tour arrangement. We had a wonderful time under his care and tour.
