We started farming 9years ago realizing the importance of food, and want to provide safe and healthy food for the younger generation.

Although only me and my wife, a primary school teacher, lives here, sometimes our 2 daughters who lives in Sapporo comes to visit.
There are a lot of warm and friendly people around here. And we have activities such as sports and performances at an ex school building nearby. We do mini volley ball every winter with the community.

On day offs, wwoofers can enjoy fishing, woodwork, nature watching with our good friends in the city center.
