History

mffarm

Highland Experimental Farm is located in Ren'ai Township, Nantou County, Taiwan. This farm was initiated in 1937 during the Japanese colonial period. Between 1952 to 1956, the faculty members of National Taiwan University (NTU) surveyed the characteristics of the farm, and concluded the necessity to renovate it. The farm was formally named “Wu-She Highland Farm” in September 1961. It was managed by NTU Experimental Forest which was relatively close to the farm from 1966 to 1973. The infrastructure of the farm was repaired to provide the need of teaching and practical training for the students of the Department of Horticulture in 1973, and renamed as “Highland Experimental Farm of National Taiwan University's College of Agriculture”. In 2002, it was renamed as “Highland Experimental Farm of National Taiwan University's College of Bioresources and Agriculture”. Nowadays, it is an wonderful place for research and education of highland agriculture and natural resources.
