With an abundance of knowledge and a passion for sustainable farming, our farm is more than just a haven for organic produce and happy animals. It's a vibrant learning hub where we open our doors to cooking students and island scholars alike, eager to explore the world of sustainable agriculture.

Nestled in this idyllic island group of Oki-noshima, our farm becomes a living classroom. Here, we don't just grow vegetables; we nurture minds and inspire hearts. Cooking students are welcomed into our farm, where they discover the art of transforming fresh, organic produce into culinary delights.

Our commitment to education doesn't stop there. Island students, curious and eager to embrace sustainability, find their classroom amid the rustling leaves and the gentle bleating of our goats. Here, they learn about the delicate balance between nature and agriculture, gaining insights that will shape a more eco-conscious future.

And our animals? They are more than just residents; they are our teachers. Years of experience have taught us the art of caring for these gentle souls, and we're thrilled to share our wisdom with the world.

Ideally, you have been working on farms before and bring great interest and knowledge in organic farming and working with animals. We work every other day on seeding, watering, planting, harvesting, and packing vegetables. Moving goats across the grazing land where we have to clear brush and woodland to build electric fences. Make new fields for more crops. Clear woodland. Built structures on the farm or renovated parts of the house.
Having a driving license is a great advantage.
