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
原っぱカフェでは、地域の農家の野菜をやお米を使い、ビュッフェで提供する料理に使用しています。その上で、足りないお野菜については、近隣の時々、お手伝いしたりしている農家さんや、近所のスーパーなどでも購入しています。(原っぱカフェで使っている野菜は全てがオーガニックというわけではありません)
At Harafield Cafe, we use vegetables and rice from local farmers for the dishes we serve at the buffet.

WE ARE IN URGENT NEED OF WWOOFers!
世界中、日本中の料理大好きウーファーさん、大募集です!
料理が上手でなくても、料理をするのが好きなら大歓迎!
原っぱカフェのキッチンで一緒に楽しく料理をしてみませんか?
このレストランでは全てのウーファーさんが「シェフ」です!

【大分・湯布院】7月26日以降で、私たちのカフェのキッチンをお手伝いいただけるウーファーさんを緊急募集いたします!

私たちの場所は(農場ではなく)カフェとなります。ウーファーさんの活動の90%はお料理に関わることで、残りの10%が知り合いの農場にお手伝いにいくことです。なので、料理に興味があるウーファーさんを募集します。(お料理が上手かどうかは問題ではなく、お料理が好き、あるいは興味があればOKです)

当店のキッチンでは、ウーファーさんたちは単なる「料理補助」的役割ではなく、それぞれ全員が「シェフ」として毎日自分の作りたい料理を作ることができます。(通常、毎日お昼までに、少なくとも2、3品のお料理をご自分で考えてお好きな料理をつくっていただきます)そしてそのお料理は、店長が確認した後で、そのまま当店のビュッフェに並ぶことになります。

ちょっと長い説明になってしまいましたが、言いたいことは、ここではウーファーさんは、毎日、料理を自分で考えて、3時間近く料理することになるので、料理が好きな人、あるいは興味がある人にとっては楽しい場所になると思いますが、もしそうでもない人にとっては、楽しくない場所になってしまうかもしれません。
そのため、最初に、念のため、これを説明しています。

自然と温泉の豊かな場所でお料理を一緒に作ったり、農作業をしたりしませんか?
活動内容は、コミュニティレストランでのお料理りづくりや準備、片付け、お皿洗いや掃除、地域の高齢者との交流、その補助などが主なものです。

---------------------------------------------

大分県の湯布院という場所で「原っぱカフェ」というコミュニティレストランを運営しています。ここでは食を通じて、世界中から集まった人たち、地元の住民、老いも若きも、障害のあるなしにかかわりなく、様々な人たちが交流し、その交流を楽しむとともに、そこから、日常の暮らしの中での助け合いの関係を生み出して行きたいと様々な実験的取り組みを行っています。


<この場所であなたが得られること、体験できるかもしれないこと>

・湯布院の地元の様々な世代の人たちも一緒に参加したり、お客さんとしてカフェにもくるので、そういったローカルな交流もできます。

・日本の料理だけでなく、様々な国の料理を他のウーファーさんたち、地元の人たちから学ぶことができます。また、料理にあまり興味のなかった人たちも料理の面白さを知ることができると思います。

・朝、昼、晩と、ランチで作った料理の残り物や、もしそれがない場合は、自分たちで好きな料理を作って食べることができます。ベジタリアン、ビーガンの方ウーファーさんも歓迎します。

・通常はカフェでの活動がメインですが、野菜をカフェに分けてくれている農家さんから依頼があれば、お店を休んだり、カフェが終了してから、農家のお手伝いにいくこともあります。

・カフェのスペースは通常、夜の10時ぐらいまでウーファーさんのために開放しています。いろんな国から来た人たちや地元の人たちとゆっくり話しをしたり、お酒を飲んだり、ゲームや音楽をしたりといった交流もできます。

・wifiがカフェにも、ウーファー用シェアハウスにもあるので、インターネットに不自由することはないと思います。

・経済効率や利益追及、競争の場とは、反対の方向を目指している場所なので、そういった暮らしに疲れた方にも、ちょっと一息ついて、自分の暮らし方を見直してみるきっかけになるかもしれません。

-----------------------------------------------------

 私たちのカフェには、お料理の値段表示はなく、代金は食べた後にお客さんが自分で決めて箱の中に入れます。また、お店として雇われているプロのシェフもおらず、ウーファーさんらを含めて、スタッフ全員がボランティアとして料理を作ります。それぞれがその日、自分の作りたい料理を自由に作り、提供されます。
 その時の経済状態に関わらず、地域の中で健康に暮らすための基本的な食事を保障していこうという、この試みは2016年1月から行っており、少しずつ定着しつつあります。

浦田龍次

<10月から3月にかけて、ウーフされる方へのご注意>
私たちにの街は標高が500mあり、夏は涼しくて快適に過ごせますが、冬は朝や夕方の冷え込みは厳しく、一番寒い時は最低気温がマイナス10度くらいまで下がる寒冷地です。
冬の期間にウーファーとして来られる方は、くれぐれも暖かい服装を忘れずに用意してください。特に、夜、寝る時にしっかりと体を温められる服装を忘れずにご持参ください。宿泊する部屋が各部屋に石油ファンヒーター、ベッドには電気毛布、防寒用のベッドサイズのテントなどを設置してますが、それでも寒い日もありますので、防寒にはくれぐれもご注意ください。
Calling WWOOFers who love cooking from all over the world, come together!
You don't have to be a good cook, but if you like cooking, you are welcome!
Why don't you join us and have fun cooking in the kitchen of the Harappa Cafe?
In this restaurant, every WWOOFer is a "chef"!

【Yufuin, Oita】We are looking for wwoofers to help our cafe kitchen after July 26th.

Our place is a cafe restaurant, not farm.
90% of WWOOFers activities are cooking,and the other 10% is to help our friend farmers or residents
. So those who are interested in cooking are most welcome here
!(You don't have to be good at cooking. But we need WWOOFers who love cooking or interested in it.)

In our kitchen, each of the woofers is not merely a cooking assistant, but a "chef" who can make any dish he or she wants to make every day (usually, by lunchtime each day, the wwoofers will make at least two or three dishes of their own choice). The dishes are then checked by our manager and placed on the buffet.

This is a bit of a long explanation, but what I want to say is that here, all the WWOOFer will be cooking for almost 3 hours every day, thinking up his own dishes, so if you like or are interested in cooking, this place will be a fun place, but if you are not, it's not a fun for you.
That is why I am explaining this at the beginning, just to be sure.

------------------------------------------------------------

We run a community restaurant called "Harappa Cafe" in a place called Yufuin in Oita Prefecture. Through food, people from all over the world and local residents, young and old, with and without disabilities, enjoy interacting with each other, and through this interaction, we are conducting various experimental efforts to create a relationship of mutual support in daily life.


<What you can get out of this place and what you may experience

You will have the opportunity to interact with local people of various generations from Yufuin, as they will participate in the event together or come to the café as customers.

You will be able to learn not only Japanese cuisine, but also various cuisines of different countries from other woofers and local people. I think it is also a great opportunity for those who are not so interested in cooking to learn how interesting it can be.

The program includes breakfast, lunch, and dinner, as well as leftovers from the dishes prepared for lunch, or if that is not available, we can prepare and eat our own favorite dishes. Vegetarian and vegan woofers are welcome.

We usually work mainly in the café, but if the farmers who share their vegetables with us in the café ask us to help, we sometimes take a break from the store or go to help the farmers after the café is closed.

The café space is usually open for woofers until about 10 pm. You can talk, drink, play games, and listen to music with people from different countries and locals.

Wifi is available in all cafes and shared houses for woofers, so you will never have a problem with internet access.

It is a place that aims to be the opposite of a place of economic efficiency, pursuit of profit, and competition, so if you are tired of such a lifestyle, this may be an opportunity to take a break and reevaluate your way of living.

-----------------------------------------------------

 In our café, there is no price label on the dishes; customers decide what they want to pay and put it in the box after they eat. Also, there is no professional chef employed by the restaurant, and all staff members, including Woofer and others, volunteer to prepare the food. Each person is free to prepare and serve whatever dish he or she wishes to make that day.
 This attempt to guarantee a basic meal for a healthy life in the community, regardless of the economic situation at the time, has been in place since January 2016 and is gradually taking root.
