100% 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

なるべく自給自足のものを工夫して食べています。石窯でパンを焼いています(冬)。部屋の暖房には薪ストーブを1台入れています。太陽光発電を入れています。水や電気は節約しています(シャワーの湯はあまり使わない、夜9時には寝るなど・・)。ホストはたばこは吸いません。

  • Other

食事の準備や後片付けは積極的に手伝ってもらいます。そこで学べることも多いので。食べ物を育て、収穫して終わりではなく、それをおいしく料理して「ごちそうさまでした」と感謝するまでが、食べるものを育てることだと思います。

Ask us when contacting us We can cook for WWOOFers who can eat honey, Niboshi for Dashi but cannot eat meat, fish, eggs nor dairy products We give ingredients and WWOOFers cook meals themselves, so they can cook anything they like usually

Yes, at a designated location

まったく縁のなかった土地で、縁ができ、ゼロから始まった新規就農。あれやこれやでもう20年が経ちました。今、ありがたいなあ、と感じることは「継続」できることです。初めのころは「あれを始めました、これを作り始めました」と新しいことが出来る喜びを感じていましたが、ここ2~3年は、「ああ今年もこれを作り続けることが出来た、今年の秋も落ち葉をこの場所で集めることが出来た、この冬も石窯は変わらずにパンのためにこんなにも温かい息を吹きかけてくれる・・」と。「続く、続けることが出来る」ということは、当たり前のようでいて、今まで気づかなかった喜びであるなあと感じています。
こんな私たちと一緒に暮らしてみませんか?
