Bhutan Peach Wine ZumZin
Peach Orchard is an Integrated Horticulture Development Program for commercial deciduous fruit production in Bhutan. Following the guidelines of the Late King Jigme Dorji Wangchuck.
A policy by the late King Jigme Dorji Wangchuck that was also found in his book, “When Planting an Orchard”; The primary objective in agricultural development should be self-sufficiency and maximize wealth using available land. Abandoned lands and other fertile lands should only be utilized for raising fruit and vegetable crops.
Under this guidelines, Bhutan's orchards is generally located on mountain slopes in between the cultivated fields and the forest cover, dry lands in the valley bottoms, and along the mountain slope contours.
