A Chihshang farmer uses a sickle to weed her rice field. Irrigated by the Hsiuwulu River flowing through Taiwan's East Rift Valley, Chihshang is famed throughout the country for its award-winning rice, which is Taitung County's most important crop. Farmers are increasingly turning to organic rice production.
Chihshang rice also forms the basis for the renowned local specialty, the Chihshang Lunch Box, which includes carrot, lean meat, fried pork, pork liver, and a preserved plum. (Rick Green photo | View slideshow)
