    Young farmers bring new life to rural Hualien township  (2021/04/07)


    Chung Yu-en is a man with a mission: to revitalize his rural hometown in Hualien's Fuli Township. Brought up in Taipei, Chung returned to his family's sleepy hometown after his father fell ill. Since moving back, he's established a thriving agricultural co-op and organic rice company. Together with a group of similar-minded youths, he's organized a music festival to build community within their rural township.


    For Chung, who raised in Taipei, Fuli Township was just a distant childhood memory. That’s until he decided to return and run an organic rice company.

    I had always thought I wanted to be a Legislative Yuan assistant, but then my life changed. On Sept. 9, 2010, my dad got sick. He had an aortic dissection. It’s quite a dangerous condition. But that’s what got me to start thinking about returning to the countryside.

    After returning to his hometown, Chung began working at his father’s agricultural co-op. His family sold rice, and he gave their brand a meaningful name that conveyed gratitude.

    Fuli farmer
    My father fell ill so I came back to take over the family business. We’re a farming family. There were some matters that nobody was tending to, so I came back to give it a try.


    Just like Chung, Chen Lu-yuen is from out of town. He returned to Fuli Township to work the family fields. When he started, he couldn’t even irrigate the crops. But now he’s brimming with confidence, with his own philosophy on farming.

    After coming back to the country, I found this group of friends. Our motivations and direction in life are quite similar. We’re birds of a feather.


    Chung has renovated an abandoned sugar factory here in Fuli. It now houses his offices, rice warehouse and marketing company.


    Chung has also started his own music festival. It’s an event not to be missed, and it helps foster community in the rural township. He and his friends call themselves Fuli 983, after the township’s postal code. Together, they’re working hard to build a home for themselves as they work the land.

    富里983"凝聚認同感 返鄉青農改造家鄉

    廢棄糖廠也能有新風貌,花蓮返鄉青年鍾雨恩,為了打出自有稻米品牌,承租了糖廠作為米倉和產銷公司,更舉辦音樂節凝聚鄉民認同感,一起來看。

    富里對在臺北成長、求學的鍾雨恩來說,只是童年 (childhood) 的回憶,但現在他卻是富里有機 (organic) 米品牌的主要經營者。

    “我一直以為,我要當國會助理,可是沒有想到其實,就人生有些意外。我爸爸在2010年9月9日,那天生病,主動脈剝離,是算一個滿危急的病,可是也因為這個事件促使我,有機會開始思考回鄉這件事。”

    回鄉的鍾雨恩,接下了爸爸原先籌畫的農產合作社,並將他們的稻米,取了意義深遠的名字,帶著敬天謝天的含意。

    “我爸爸生病,所以我就回來接家業,然後也是務農這樣子,家裡有這些事業,放著沒有人管,那就回來試試看。”


    陳律遠也是返鄉的青農之一,繼承了家裡的田地,從一開始連替田裡放水都有問題的菜鳥農夫,但現在可以侃侃而談,講出一本自己的種田經。

    “我覺得返鄉就是有個伴,既然我們這群朋友們,初心或是方向其實是相同的物以類聚。”

    一座荒廢多年的舊糖廠,鍾雨恩將它改造之後,成了他們的辦公室、米倉和產銷公司。

    鍾雨恩還號召在地年輕人,舉辦「穀稻秋聲山谷草地音樂節」,凝聚鄉民認同感。他們以全臺灣最大數目的郵遞區號為名,自稱「富里983」,成為一股改造家鄉的年輕活力。
