北海道の東に位置する弟子屈町にて2018年に新規就農し、放牧体型での酪農を営んでおります。
家族二人で回すことが出来る程度の大きさの牧場で、ワークライフバランスを重視した生活をしています。
冬は寒いですが、四季折々の自然を感じることが出来る場所だと思います。

I am running a family owned farm in eastern part of Hokkaido, Japan. This farm was established in 2018 (previously owned by a different owner till 2017)
The farm is
Feeding grass on pasture during the summer time
Feeding grass silage during the winter time

I am focusing on maximizing the quality of life therefore, the working hour is usually 3 hours in the morning, 3 hours in the afternoon.
Teshikaga town is very cold in winter. The coldest temperature in the year goes below -20℃ sometimes.
However, you can still enjoy the great nature in eastern Hokkaido.
WE ARE ACCEPTING WWOOFers
