Through organic farming, we focus our efforts in the production of blueberries and rice. We strictly believe in use of organic measures and refrain from the use of any pesticides.Our farm is surrounded by nature and over looks the Shinshu Alps.

As a WOOFer, you will be helping to harvest the many blueberries we offer. Harvesting blueberries is patient work so we ask that you always bring a positive and hospitable attitude to the many visitors that join us in picking blueberries.

We are also sports lovers! Our children partipate in youth baseball and basketball. We especially invite those who enjoy children, sports, and a good time!

Please join us in July to harvest the plentiful blueberries at our farm!

We are looking for WWOOFers with an enthusiastic and positive attitude towards organic arigulture and life! WOOFers must speak a little Japanese and willing to learn. Otherwise it can be very difficult to communicate with our family and the many visitors that come to pick blueberries at our farm.

We are excited to hear from you!!! Please contact us in a message with easy English.
