Nutriheal, an organic shop in Kota Kemuning organised for some of their customers to come to the farm for a visit yesterday, April 5th.
We were a little upset to see so many children, as DQ Farm is a working farm and we do not run a seperate "demo" farm. What-You-See-Is-What-You-Get. In our farm, you are going to have weaver ants (Oecophylla smaragdina) , bees, killer wasps, 7 inches centipedes and cobras to name a few of the worries we have with kids around.
Weaver ants build huge nests the size of footballs in our durian trees. We do not get rid of them as they protect our fruits from insect and animal damage. But on occasion, a huge nest will just drop down for no reason whatsoever, and if it were to land on a kid...!
On top of that, we are continously running our retort to make biochar and I shudder to think what will happen if a kid were to place his palm on the 400 degree celcius surface of the retort.
We hope future visitors follow our instructions strictly and not bring kids. It is just too dangerous!
