山に囲まれた静かな集落で、四季の美しい場所です。
牛の飼料は、ここで採れる牧草と、北海道産のビートの搾りかすだけで、遺伝子組み換えの飼料を与えていません。夏には放牧をしています。持続可能な農業を目指しています。
自分でできることや作れるものは、できるだけ自分でやりたいと思っています。
ターシャ・テューダーがしていた生活に憧れています。
冬は薪ストーブを使っていて、冷蔵庫もオフにします。
食品添加物や化学調味料を使わないようにしています。
反核、平和のための活動や学びの場に参加することを心がけています。
ウーファーさんには、朝と夕方の搾乳作業や掃除、昼間は、日によって夏は家庭菜園や薪割り、牧柵の準備など、冬は雪かきなどをお願いしています。昼間の仕事がないこともあります。
交通の便が悪いので、ウーファーさんが休みの日に一人で出かけられる所がかなり限られます。私たちが出かけるときに一緒に行くことは可能です。夏はハイキング、冬はスキーに一緒に行くことが多いです。
電磁波からのデトックスや、自然な生活をしたいウーファーさんには合っていると思います。便利な生活や交通の便が良いところを希望する人には向かないかと思います。携帯電話の電波は家の中ではあまり届かないです。
同じ時を過ごせる事を楽しみに待っています。

We live in the place the four seasons are very beautiful with our cows and other animals. We are looking forward to have a good time with you! We want to learn English.
WE ARE IN URGENT NEED OF WWOOFers!
今年はコロナウイルス対策のため、基本的には現在北海道に滞在しておられて、そこから来られる方を受け入れています。
ご連絡を頂く際には、現在どこに滞在しているか、その滞在期間、今後の予定が決まっておられたらその予定、こちらに来る交通手段、をお知らせください。よろしくお願い致します。

ご返事は、数日の日数が生じますので、なるべく余裕を十分もってお申込をお願いします。
Thank you for being interested in our farm. We are accepting wwoofers who are in Hokkaido now because of the pandemic of Covid-19. We are happy if you let us know where you are right now, how long you have been there, and how to come here. Thank you for your understanding.

Notice to WWOOFers from overseas.
We want to receive WWOOFers who have been in Japan for at least one week, before coming to our place.
The reason for this, is towards the prevention of infectious diseases to our farm animals from overseas, such as foot-and-mouth disease.
We appreciate your understanding.
