50代の夫婦がのんびりとペットと暮らしています。
自然が多く果物が美味しいところなので食いしん坊な私たちは、春は山菜取り、夏は桃、梨を秋はぶどう、柿を近所からわけてもらいたくさん食べます。
農作業も麦や米、えごま作りに季節の野菜、しいたけなど多岐にわたり、食品加工もしています。
ウーファーにはそんな私たちの体力的な手伝い(草刈りや収穫)と日々を楽しむための精神的なお手伝いを望みます。食事や仕事を通してお互いの国や習慣につて気さくに話し合い、個々を尊重し、一緒に過ごせる方がいいなと思います。

We are in our 50s, spending days with our dogs at ease.
Nature around us is so much and fruits are delicious. Our prefecture is famous for fruits. We eat a lot of wild plants in the spring, peaches and pears in the summer, grapes and persimmon in the autumn.
Agricultural work in here covers a wide range of growing seasonal vegetables, shiitake mushrooms, rice, prrilla, and food processing.
We would like to have your help such a physical aid (grass cutting and harvesting) and also enjoying days together. We think that it is nice to talk about each other's countries and customs through meals and work.
We respect individuals and we would love to know what your country like during your stay.
WE ARE ACCEPTING WWOOFers
特に10月、11月の受入れは大歓迎!

えごまを作り、収穫した実を搾り油にして販売しています。
そのほかにも米や麦、椎茸や野菜などを作っています。
Especially acceptance in October and November is welcome

We grow perilla and sell it as perilla oil by squeezing fruits harvested.
In addiction to that, we grow rice, wheat, shiitake mushrooms and vegetables.
