The pursuit of freshness is sweeping across China. In the past decades, rural farmhouses called nongjiales have been popping up all over. They cater to the growing urban desire for fresh food and air, and they’ve been heavily promoted by the government as a way to bridge the income gap.

We visited a couple of these farmhouses and got the inside scoop. And killed a chicken while we were at it.
