July is the season of fragrant melons and fruits. In the countryside of Zongyang County, Tongling City, Anhui Province, there are fruit bases everywhere. The ripe fruits are full of branches, which is not only the gift of nature, but also the hard work of farmers.
At the Qifei family farm in Tanggou Town, Liu Shuangfei and workers are sorting and packing the apples and pears that have just been picked, ready to be transported to other places. A large number of apple pears planted on the farm are on the market. Because of their good taste and ecological cultivation, they can sell more than 1000 Jin every day.
In the 40 mu pear garden not far away, mature apple pears are wrapped in yellow anti bacteria bags and heavily covered with branches. "These anti bacteria bags can not only effectively prevent germs and pests, but also improve the quality of pears. In this way, the surface of the picked pears is bright and clean, and they can be sold at a good price. At the same time, it can also play the role of bird pecking prevention. These pears are very fragrant and easy to attract birds. " Liu Shuangfei said.
Open the bag of bacteria, and a green apple pear reveals the real body. They are small in size, but they are more delicate than ordinary pear flesh. They are also mixed with the aroma of apples, and more moisture than apples. They can be regarded as the cream of the two. "Compared with the traditional Huanghua pear, Xueqing pear and other varieties, apple pear is not only fresh and crisp in flesh, but also juicy and has a natural flavor. It is very popular and in short supply." Liu Shuangfei said. "No, it wasn't long before it came into the market. The owner of the local specialty of Zongyang started a live broadcast in the garden, so that you can see the growing environment of these pears and eat them more at ease."
To plant a kind of green ecological, safe to eat fruit! With such simple feelings, Liu Shuangfei is determined to build a green and ecological brand. Although he was first involved in fruit cultivation, Liu Shuangfei insisted on using organic fertilizer instead of chemical fertilizer, pesticide and expander. In order to ensure the ecological, organic and green fruit products, planting experts were invited to the field for guidance, and ecological management was adopted to ensure the quality and taste of fruit. This year, the farm won the certificate of green food grade a product.
According to reports, a total of 180 mu of land has been transferred from Qifei family farm in Zongyang County. In addition to apple pear, yellow peach, watermelon, mulberry, cherry, melon and other varieties have been planted. "Apple pears, watermelons, melons, tomatoes nd grapes are now on the market. When Apple pears are sold out, Cuiguan Pears will soon be on the market. " Liu Shuangfei said.
Liu Shuangfei never worries about the market because of the good quality and high reputation of the fruit. At present, it mainly relies on the combination of online and offline. Offline supply mainly to supermarkets and fruit shops, online sales through purchasing. At the same time, Liu Shuangfei also innovates the way to release fruit information and related activities through wechat group. Customers place orders in the group. According to the demand of orders, Liu Shuangfei picks and delivers the fruits as they are. On the one hand, it ensures the freshness of fruits, on the other hand, it avoids the imbalance between supply and demand. Pick on demand, so that both sides benefit. "We will send the fruit that the customer needs to the fixed place in the county. When the customer comes, he just needs to scan the code to pick up the goods, which is convenient and fast." Liu Shuangfei said.
Zhu Xia is the group to buy more fruit customers, love to eat fruit, she is very high on the quality of fruit. "The fruit of Qifei family farm is delicious. We order according to our needs and can eat fresh fruit. It's more convenient and reassuring than going to the supermarket. "
"I've been working outside for many years, but I miss my hometown most." Liu Shuangfei said. In 2015, when most people tried their best to enter the city and the world, Liu Shuangfei and his wife Zhu Chunfang did the opposite. They returned from the city to the countryside and founded Qifei family farm. "The ecological environment of my hometown is good, the infrastructure is more and more perfect, and there are more and more tourists. To create an ecological fruit base in my hometown should make a difference. After investigation, we found that there was a large market space for apple pear, so we started with apple pear and gradually expanded the scale. In the field of technology, they cooperate with Zhejiang Agricultural University to supply seedlings and provide technical guidance in the later stage. " Liu Shuangfei told the author.
At present, Liu Shuangfei is mainly responsible for orchard management and surrounding sales at home, while his wife Zhu Chunfang runs the market in Jiangsu and Zhejiang. They work together to make the farm prosperous. They not only made themselves rich, but also promoted the employment of two local poor families, with a daily wage of 80 to 100 yuan.
"I work here all year round. I don't have to work outside. I can get a job at home. They can work to earn money and take care of their families. " Liu Zhongqing, a poor farmer who is pulling grass in the orchard, said happily.
Talking about the future development, Liu Shuangfei said confidently: "in the next step, I will make full use of the location advantage of the farm close to g347, take the ecological orchard as the center, and develop into a modern ecological farm integrating ecological orchard and sightseeing agriculture. Through these small melons and fruits, more villagers will become rich."
