自然栽培でお米とお豆を作っている農家です。農場を始めて15年目になります。世界のエコビレッジを周った経験から、地球に優しく人に安心安全な暮らしを求めて北海道に移住してきました。

農場では農作業の他に、発酵食品作り、ファーマーズマーケット出店、家造りなどやることがたくさんあり、毎日が学びの場になっています。1日の作業のあとは近くの温泉でゆっくり体を癒すこともできます。

自給自足、パーマカルチャー、トランジションタウン、エコビレッジ、発酵、タイニーハウスなど、いっしょに学んでみませんか。

I am a farmer who makes rice and beans mainly of natural cultivation method. It's been fifteen years since I started farming. From experience visiting the world's Eco Villages, I have moved to Hokkaido in search of a safe, secure, and sustainable life for people and the earth.

Besides farming on farm, there are many things to do, such as making fermented foods, helping farmer's market, building house, and etc. I believe that every day is the place to learn something. After a day's work you can also heal your body at nearby hot spring.

Please join to learn together with self-sufficiency, permaculture, transition town, EcoVillage living, fermentation, tiny house, and etc.
WE ARE IN URGENT NEED OF WWOOFers!
はじめまして。ここニセコはスキーリゾート地として有名な自然豊かな所です。主に自然栽培で野菜やお米、豆類を3haほど作っている農家です。4月から稲の田植え準備、畑作物の定植、山菜摘み、除草、農産物の加工など11月収穫期までやることが一気に増えますので、そのお手伝いをお願いします。
今年はタイニーハウスをセルフビルドで作ったり、完全天日干し塩作りも計画してます。自然豊かなニセコでいっしょに農的暮らしを実践してみませんか。

自然栽培、パーマカルチャー、里山、安心安全な食べ物に興味がある方、お待ちしております。短期長期問いません。
Niseko is rich in nature and famous as an international ski resort. I am a farmer mainly making rice, greens, and beans by natural method, and I need help with rice planting, weeding, seeding, and making agricultural products from April to November. Moreover, I have plan to make the Tiny House by self-build and Complete Sun-Dried Salt also in this season.

Please participate together if interested in natural cultivation, parmaculture, life of Satoyama, and reliable&safe food. It doesn't matter for a short or long term woofing. Thank you.
