私達の牧場は北海道の北の方にあります。
札幌から北に5時間程、旭川から北に3時間程かかります。
冬は多くの雪に覆われ、夏は涼しい山間で
牛、ヤギ、犬、ねこと生活しています。

道南の江差町とお間違えの無いように…

Our farm is in Esashi(枝幸), the NORTH of Hokkaido.
(Please do not confuse another Esashi(江差) which is in SOUTH of Hokkaido.)
It takes about 5 hours from Sapporo and 3 hours from Asahikawa to get here.
We live here with cows, goats, one dog and one cat.
Our place is coverd by much snow in the winter
but in the summer it changes to cool weather because we live near the Sea of Okhotsk.

70 to 90% organic

No

We have an organic attitude of sorts, but we do not go out of our way to be organic or alternative, rather, we do what suits us at the time

牛達の食べる草はすべて牧場で育った無農薬、無化学肥料の牧草でまかない、濃厚飼料にあまりたよらず牛乳生産をしています。堆肥もすべて草地に還元し持続可能な循環型農業を営んでいます。
牛達は夏は昼夜放牧、冬はフリーストールという施設で自由に動きまわリ過ごしています。天気の良い日は外で日光浴をしたり雪の上で昼寝をしたりしています。自然分娩を心がけています。
自家菜園を負担にならない程度にやっており無農薬、無化学肥料の野菜やハーブを何種類か作っています。

We give grass to cows everyday in the sustainable ways and we do care about the grass.
They are organic made in our farm.(But we have also cereals for cows which aren't organic but we don't rely on it too much.)

We put our cows out to the grass in the summer and put them into their cowhouse where the cows can move freely in the winter. However, only in the good weather of winter, they can go out of the cowhouse and take a nap with the sun on the snow.
We care the natural delivery for our cows because it is very important and better for the mother cows and the baby cows.

Only in the summer, we make a kitchen garden in the organic ways without burdens which gives us fresh vegetables and herbs .

  • General diet including meat and fish
  • We usually cook homemade meals
  • We may buy obento (lunch boxes) at convenience stores and supermarkets

We do not drink much. If WWOOFers want to drink, they can bring their own drink but it has to be a little amount and of course it must not interfere with WWOOFing

No, nobody smokes

こんにちは
私たちの牧場は、牛、ヤギ、犬、猫を飼っています。
毎日の仕事は動物たちのお世話です。

天気の良い冬の日には裏山までスノーハイクを楽しんだり、
牛舎の屋根の上で雪下ろしも面白い作業です。

-25℃以下の日はダイヤモンドダストも見られます。
寒いですがとてもきれいですよ!

一緒に田舎の生活を楽しみましょう。
