To summarize the owner's story as he wrote on the website, the owner, Mr. Jeon, moved to Daegwallyeong during the summer of 1988 when he was 37 years old. He was a normal worker at a company in Seoul and he did not have any basic knowledge of how to operate a farm. However, his passion and love for sheep made everything possible for him.
