After playing the "happy farm" game on kaixin001.com, would you like to put yourself among the real corps while smelling the fragrance of the countryside? Recently, a farm land service called "happy farm in reality" was opened in the suburbs of Shanghai where white-collar workers from around that region can experience the real farmer's life by themselves.

A family of farmers at weekend

Weekend is the time for those who have worked a whole week to be happy with their families. And now there is another good option for them to choose.

Mr. Liu, a white-collar worker who lives in the Pudong district with his family, rented a piece of farmland in the suburb with a 3, 000 yuan membership fee. When weekend comes, the whole family likes to drive to their own farm to have fun. Watering, weeding, fertilizing and worming, each bringing them unique fun. And during the harvest season, they usually take the harvest back to enjoy with their friends and neighbors.

Mr. Liu said they took part in the program on one hand to bring the family and child a special experience, and on the other, so they can eat the products without any concerns about pollution. He also said since the membership began more than a month ago, they have go to their farm every weekend to experience the special happiness.

To monitor farming on the Internet in future

Meng, the representative of this farm land, said they would set up monitoring equipment in the future for their customers' to watch their plants on the Internet.

Meng also said the mode of this farm land is still not mature enough, and they are now seeking better development. He revealed that more than 100 cabins were under construction. When the project is finished, members can not only come here at the weekend, they can also live here for one or two weeks to live a real farmer's life.
