A Unique Farm Retreat Built And Conceptualised
by Two Very Passionate Farmers
In 1964, a 9-year-old boy was watching over his goats in Kulim, Kedah. He enjoyed living in the secluded town, but he aspired to live in a vibrant city. After moving to Kuala Lumpur for his studies, he quickly adapted to the city's hustle and bustle. Excelling in the field of medicine, he was given the opportunity to become a medical specialist in London. Returning a specialist to Kuala Lumpur, he and his colleagues established a private hospital; but, the doctor, deep in his heart, longed for his past. He often thought of retreating from Kuala Lumpur and reliving his days back in Kulim. Putting this idea in motion, he bought land in Hulu Langat: a reclusive town concealed by luscious green trees. He turned his land, with the inspiration of his 9-year-old self, into an orchard and a farm retreat. His memories of his childhood started to grow from the very roots of his land. Residing in Hulu Langat’s silence, the boy's dream still remained unnamed. It only seemed right to call that living memory "Aman Dusun."
Further south, a little girl resides in her garden. Tending to a variety of plants, she became a very passionate gardener and architect; she, however, never thought of herself as a farmer. After meeting with a doctor, she helped him to design his dream: a farm retreat. When given the task to oversee the farm's business, she was reluctant to pursue this new field. Nevertheless, she was quite curious about what the doctor wanted for his land and oversaw his business. Helping out the new workers, she learned the ins and outs of the farm. The farm changed her, and she started to spend more time on the farm during the week. After Aman Dusun was established, she introduced a goat's milk business, a 100% organic revolution, and a farm homestay. Thanks to her, Aman Dusun doesn't just hold a beautiful past. Aman Dusun now holds a gift waiting to be discovered.
