100% organic
We are alternative people, and live an organic mentality
We basically eat Japanese meals using our organic vegetables. We rarely eat meat but sometimes we eat fish which our friends fish at the sea near the shore. We prefer seasonal and natural foods and use non-food additive seasoning. We don’t have TV (but we read newspaper every day for instance). We get up with sun rising and sleep at 9 p.m.. We try to keep our health with self-healing power and foods instead of chemical medicine. Our basic needs are mainly suppled by nature, farm, and local community. We try to reduce dependence on money.
  • We do not eat meat but we have meals with fish occasionally
  • Our own grown vegetables generally
  • We always cook homemade meals
When we have a party or an event, we might drink with WWOOFers but these occasions are not so often

こちらにステイのリクエストをするときに、私たちが重視することは、何故他の農園でなくSHO Farmなのかという目的意識・モチベーションです。私たちは横須賀市で無農薬無化学肥料の農業をしています。家畜・養蜂・薪料理・農産加工品の製造販売もしていますが、野菜は多品目で季節のほとんどの野菜を生産しています。代表である妻と夫が中心となり数人のスタッフで運営しています。農業でビジネスとして成功するというよりも、自給的でシンプルな生活をすることを人生の目的としています。
We are organic farmers in Yokosuka, Kanagawa. We grow a lot of variety of seasonal vegetables. My family, I, my wife and my father, manage our farm. We don’t have employer.
Our aim is to achieve simple and self-contained life, rather than to get success on business.
We’d like to challenge everything related in agriculture and foods, for example, building a pizza oven, boring a well, breeding house animals, making processed foods, holding event and party, nursing, construction, cultural exchange.
I and my wife were WWOOFers in Germany, Philippine, New Zealand. Form this experience, we decided to become a WWOOF host and hope to host many foreign people. We are very welcome whoever has interest in Japan and agriculture. We are looking forward to discussing about agriculture and your country.
we are waiting for WWOOFers who have strong motivation of organic farming and zero waste (eco friendly)life style and tiny house life.
Wwoofers who are self motivated, hard worker, open mind, love cooking and kids are welcome!
