An Eco- friendly farm

This is a good example of mixed cropping practised at the farm. For many reasons my foster parent prefers to plant various short term crops before the big oil palm harvest brings in the ultimate return. Here banana trees are planted close to the oil palm tree to act as initial shelter and a source of food for wildlife and also for their consumption, too.

All palm trees are tagged for record purposes.

Our farm is called 'Laman Kambatik'. Here my foster parent takes the trouble to create the farm's name on the hill slope, that is in topiary form.
