More than a dozen villages in the town plant watermelons, melons, peaches and other agricultural products, which form the"Taitou Town of Water Charm" characteristic brand.

"Beierbao Village is located in the hinterland of the town, with limited cultivated land area and characteristic agricultural products. However, the ecological environment and farming culture are its advantages. We will promote the common development of every village, promote tourism through agriculture, and benefit farmers through tourism," said Jiang Yao, Secretary of the Party Committee of Taitou Town. In recent years, the town has held agricultural tourism activities such as"Watermelon Festival" and"Harvest Festival" in the village, attracting many tourists from the urban area.

Health & Nursing Industry Brings Benefits to Farmers

Liu Jinkui, the old village director of Beierbao Village, after seeing the good development of the health & nursing industry in Qinhuangdao and other areas, wanted to introduce intelligent physical examination, health & nursing treatment and other equipment to the village homestays. After contact, the rural health center was successfully built in the village committee.

Through medical health testing and intervention equipment, the center can screen for the risk of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases and early Alzheimer's disease for villagers and tourists free of charge. Starting from 2021, the village has used advanced devices to conduct physical examinations for all villagers every year and compiled the"Manual of Self-Health Management for the Villagers of Beierbao Village" to grasp the big data of villagers' health more comprehensively.

In addition, health & nursing devices are combined with homestay, so that the farmyard becomes a"nursing home". The project has provided more jobs for villagers in Beierbao Village and neighboring villages. At the beginning of 2023, in the face of the concentrated release of tourism demand, five idle houses in the village were transformed to build boutique homestays which provide 50 health & nursing beds. The village collective income can reach 2,000 yuan per day. More and more villagers are applying to upgrade their small courtyards into health and nursing homestays.

Beierbao Village continuously improves the health & nursing management system, and implements centralized management in nutrition diet, mental health, scientific sports and other aspects. It has built a number of health tourist attractions integrating"eye care, health care, beauty care and heart care", such as Baoshang Family, Hezhou Coffee, Erbao Canteen, and Cage Football Field.
