In a country where international trade exchanges are developing quickly, developing and promoting a local and sustainable food directly from producers is a major issue to ensure food sovereignty of Korean people. The project is led by small-scale organic fruit farmers in Chungju. Majority of the farms are family run, and characterized by small-scale land areas (less than 2 has). Farmers are willing to plant a great diversity of fruit trees in combination with their cash crops: apricot, blueberries, apples, pears, grapes… to diversify their production and incomes.
