私は、農業試験場の研究者だった父が始めた有機農家の2代目で、現在は独立し、ミニトマトを中心とした有機農業をしています。実は、父&妹も隣町でWWOOFホスト(h2375)をしており、羨ましくなり始めてしまいました!
我が家のウリは山の中での有機栽培。おそらく、我が家以上の山の中でミニトマトを栽培している農家は日本にはいないと思います。野生動物も沢山生息しています。ミニトマトは栄養価コンテストで2019年に日本一になりましたが、そのミニトマトを一番食べてるのはタヌキやテン。その他にも日本カモシカ、熊、猪、猿など、日々色んな動物に出会えます。アカショウビンやアカハライモリ、サンショウウオなどの希少種もよく姿を見せます。
僕はこんな自然が好きで農業を始めました。自然が好きな方、子供が好きな方、安全で美味しい野菜が好きな方!お待ちしております!!
I am a second-generation organic farmer started by my father, who was a researcher at the Agricultural Experiment Station. Actually, my father and sister are also WWOOF hosts (h2375) in the next town, and I'm starting to envy them!
Our strength is organically grown in the mountains. I don't think there are any farmers in Japan who grow mini tomatoes in the mountains deeper than ours.
Many wild animals also live here. In the 2019 nutritional value contest, our cherry tomatoes were the best in Japan, but raccoon dogs and martens know their taste best. In addition, you can meet various animals every day, such as Japanese serows, bears, wild boars, and monkeys. Rare species such as red kingfisher, red-bellied newt and salamander are also common.
I started farming because I love nature. Those who like nature, those who like children, and those who like safe and delicious vegetables! We'll be expecting you! !
