In our farm, we produce various crops sucha as tea, rice, soybeans, wheat, mikan oranges, and plums without any chemical use. We also use these crops for processing of miso, mochi (rice cake), pickled plums, and koji. We keep hens and roosters for eggs.

We organize our farms in a way that resources such as rice and wheat straws, chicken manure, and weeds stay and circulate in the farm to fertilize soil and feed livestock in order to be sustainable, self-sufficient, and beyond organic. Small scale and multicropping practice of farming enable us to be less dependent on the outside resources.

Throughout a year, we organize various workshops and events such as handpicking of tea, black tea processing, rice planting, rice harvest, chicken workshop, mochi/rice cake making, miso processing, etc. in order to pass the knowledge about organic farming and livelihood.

In our house, we are off the electric grid and solely depend on the solar power generation. It is important for us to be organic and sustainable not only in the production, but also in various phase of our livelihood.

100% organic
We are alternative people, and live an organic mentality
We eat organic vegetables from our own garden. If there is not enough, we buy organic vegetables from a friend farmer. We enjoy good fresh food in season.
In order to promote organic farming and consumption, we work with other organic tea farmers to exchange knowledge and skills to improve our tea. We also encourage young people(farmers, and non farmers) to enjoy the organic farming and healthy eating through working in a common rice field or other food and agriculture related activities/events which are held in regular basis.
