In Hong Kong, second-graders might have once begged their parents for a trip to Disneyland on weekends. Now many of them want to go to an organic farm instead. A local entrepreneur has discovered a way to make growing healthy food wildly popular: Add a Hello Kitty theme.
The Hello Kitty Go Green Organic Farm, a 50,000 square foot farm that opened last June and was reported on in Modern Farmer, is plastered with the cartoon character—wearing overalls and a straw hat, and holding a carrot in her paw—at every step. Even some of the produce grown at the farm is sold with Hello Kitty stickers.
