🌱 Producer Introduction：
Back in 1993, when Pat Fan was 12 his parents stopped farming but continued living on it. Just under 20 years later, Pat Fan returned to farming the organic way, using the skills that were passed down to him by his mother all those years ago. As with many farmers in HK, due to the ever changing climate there are many challenges - and Pat Fan is not immune to this. He is now in the process of transitioning towards regenerative farming on his farm, where he aims to develop a sustainable system and long-term solution.
Pat Fan believes that as long as he actively focuses on rebuilding the farm’s soil microbiome and reclaiming soil health, he can better control pest issues and eventually grow healthier, tastier vegetables. He admits that there are less customers now at the outlets that he sells, but he is determined to keep improving his produce and attract more customers to support regeneratively farmed food.
