Under Phoenix Mountain in remote suburban Beijing, there is a farm called Little Donkey Farm.
A panorama of hard farm work unfolds before visitors' eyes in spring, but the farmers are not real local farmers. In fact, they are people from downtown Beijing, and they come here only in their leisure time.
They rent plots of land to plant and harvest their own produce in suburban Beijing in their spare time. However, what they enjoy most is not the organic vegetables, but rather the healthy lifestyle.



Yu Shuchen, a 71-year-old retiree, hoes in the field. She rented a plot of land 30 square meters in the Little Donkey Farm in 2009, and then doubled the plot and planted more vegetables. She says she is particularly pleased to farm there and usually works from dawn to dusk. [Photo: CRIENGLISH.com]
Children are busy with watering in the Little Donkey Farm. They are attracted by the charming rural scene and unique entertainment and leisure, and they can learn so much more than in the cities. [Photo: CRIENGLISH.com]
Some people work in the Little Donkey Farm out of concern for food safety, and only organic vegetables are planted at this place, a place where no chemical fertilizers will harm the soil or the vegetables. [Photo: Courtesy of Little Donkey Farm]
