The Farm Visit was the first visit in HKSQ World Quality Month on 5 Nov 2011. The visit was organized by HKSQ and co-organized by Hong Kong Food Science and Technology Association Ltd. (HKFSTA) and ASQ-HK.
We started in the Fanling East Rail Station.
Mr. Kwok Ming Cheung (Managing Director of HK Hi-Tech Poultry Development Ltd. and HONWAL Healthy Agro Products Co. Ltd. 康和健康農產品有限公司) introduced the environment during the travel.
We saw a Mangrove (紅樹林)
Passing through Lau Fau Shan (流浮山)
We walked to Uncle Po (波叔) fishpond.
Uncle Po explained the fish feeding and characteristic to us. The water quality was maintained in different salinity.
The small fish was used for feeding
Uncle Po demonstrated the fishes.
It was sea fish feeding in pond.
When some larger fish were found, they would feed in the net which located in the middle of the pond. The pond would remove all water annually and exposure under sunshine for about 2 months.
I represented HKSQ to present the souvenir to Uncle Po.
Group photo took in front of Uncle Po's pond.

The lunch was arranged by Mr. Kwok Ming Cheung for local farm food.
