100% organic

Yes

有機

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

どうも、設問がチトおかしんだよな。有機であるというのが、決して、目的ではなく、結果に過ぎないんだよね。
大事なのは、人や自然と共生しようとする生き方でしょう。
全然、具体的じゃないか、
まぁ、来て見ればわかるよ!

This question is a little strange. Our organic life is not our purpose but just our result.
It is important that the way of the life sheres with people or nature, we think.
Aha, It is not concretly!
Anyway, come to us and you know!

札幌から2時間くらいのところに、海も山も川も(おまけに最近温泉も)ある素敵なところ。ここに有機農業を目指して新規就農して33年。ホストは若かりし頃、海外放浪4年間、そしてこの地、積丹にたどり着く。
家はボロだが、心は豊かと人は言う。暇な時にはギターを弾きながら、がなりたてるシンガーソングライターにしてファーマーである。
ウーファーは時に適度な疲労、雨の日にはすてきな雨音が聞ける。その気になったら自然と対話。たまには温泉も。そして味にうるさいホスト厳選の純米日本酒。いずれにせよ、何を得るかはその人次第。

It is about 2 hours by bus and train from Sapporo which is a main city in Hokkaido. We have the ocean, the mountains and the rivers and it is such a beautiful place to live. Lately the town opened a hot spring bathing house. I moved here 33years ago and started farming for the first time. When I was young I had traveled over the world for 4 years. They say our house is very old but our soul is rich and playing the guitar makes me crazy in a happy way. I am a farmer as well as a singer song writer.
Wwoofer, you can sometimes get moderate exhaustion and can listen marvelous rain's drops in rainy day and can talk with nature when you would like and can occasionally go to hot springs. And you can enjoy to drink pure japanese sake which the host choose severely.
Anyway, it depends on you what you get!!
WE ARE ACCEPTING WWOOFers
