Wild and field
Wild and Field was established in January 2011. The key members are YOYO、偉志、大頭, who are not the natively born but enjoy the life in Meinong and have been rooted in here for more than 7 years.
How interesting could a life in the village be? Could we, the younger generation, appreciate the beauty of farming village? For the answer, we rooted ourselves here and begin our journey to discover the riches of Meinong. We immerse ourselves into the Hakka and farming culture here. From newbie to local old hands, fun things and novelties never stop coming to us. We document the life here in Meinong everyday and share with the world in many forms, from creating art works with farm, publishing a local zine “野上野下” to designing various field trips, to have the outsiders to experience and appreciate the inner beauty of the village more. We are ready to share all of the discoveries and beauty of Meinong we enjoy so much to you.
Are you ready to meet and feel the surprise of this charming Hakka village!?
The temperature slightly changes through the year in Taiwan, especially in the south. So it could be difficult to notice the seasons change if you stay in the city. But it is another story in Meinong, though it is only 40 minutes drive from the Kaohsiung city center. Each crop here grows at the proper season, making this Hakka village has four distinct landscapes in a year. Addition to the scenery, local culinary pattern here changes as the season changes.
Let’s deep inside the village and embrace the vivid and fun here!
