There are numerous flower, vegetable and strawberry farms accessible to visitors in Cameron Highlands.The tour takes about 3½ hours and covers the Cactus Valley and visits to different agricultural farms for hydroponic lettuce, strawberries, flowers, watercress, and more. Be sure to wear comfortable walking shoes, as there is a good amount of walking up and down steep steps and terraced footpaths. The Cactus Valley is home to a wide variety of unusual plant species, like oddly shaped cacti, lantern flower (otherwise known as“freesia”), passion fruit (also known as “lovers’ fruit”), and even grapes. Visitors will learn about different vegetable farming methods practiced in the highlands – aeroponic, hydroponic, conventional and organic. Hydroponic is a modern method and often the costliest, but vegetables are easily grown using water instead of soil. Nutrients are fed to the plants via a circulated water system, giving them adequate oxygen. Protected from direct sunlight, the greens are grown on neat rows of raised elongated planters and protected from pests with strategically placed “fly paper” that lure insects to its adhesive surface. Afetr the enlighhtening Agro-Delight Tour, you would appreciate the fresh,crisp greens even more.Instead of seeing them as just an essential component of our diet, you would see the vegetables as the fruits of many diligent farmers labour in Cameron Highlands.
