5年前に廃屋だった古民家を見つけ、2年ほどかけて改造して、移り住んできました。
私は20代のころ、バックパッカーとして3年間ほど海外を旅行した経験があります。いろんな人たちと出会い、いろんな価値観とめぐりあえたことは、貴重な体験だったと思います。多くの人たちに助けられながらの旅でしたが、今度は私が誰かにお返しをする番だと思っています。
農業は野菜作り中心です。広さは約30アール、近くのスーパーなどに、葉物、ネギなどを出荷しています。放棄田、イノシシ、シカの害などの問題はありますが、土作りにこだわっていきたいと思っています。
ウーハーと畑で一緒に汗を流すことを楽しみにしています。

As a farmer, I grow mainly vegetables, and I make a living by selling them. Some things I grow currently include togarashi peppers, corn, tomatoes, and mushrooms, but I am constantly trying out new things and grow various types of fruits as well. My field is about 0.8 acres. There are many problems, such as damages caused by boars and deer, but my main focus is on organically creating good soil, which in turn produces better vegetables and fruit.

Twelve years ago, I found an old traditional house that had been abandoned for years, and I decided to renovate it. After the renovation, I started to live there with my family.
I had always wanted to live in a place in the mountains by running water, and this village was the perfect fit, nestled between mountains with a running stream right by the home.
I have gained precious experience from traveling abroad for three years as a backpacker. Many people helped me, so now it is my time to give back to someone.

I’m looking forward to working with you!
