  • Beehive farmland and crop house

People in penghu would use every single lao-gu stone or basalt rock to build the wind proof wall to fight against the strong northeast monsoon. Agricultures for dry crop usually scatter around their houses and are therefore called "crop house". And all these agricultures are so close that the whole land looks like a beehive with those walls and then people call it beehive farmland.
