無農薬有機栽培は15年前から、3年前からは不耕起の稲作・野菜栽培に切り替えました。ホストはワーキングホリデイの経験と通訳案内士の資格がありますので、英語学習のコツもお伝え出来ます。
・ホストは1人なので忙しく、説明や対応時間に残念ながら限りがあります。当農場に合うウーファーは、1人でもある程度自分で責任を持って考えて動ける人、自分から必要な作業を提案出来る人を望みます。勿論一緒に作業をする時は出来る限りのウーファーの質問に応えてウーファーさん達の当農場での時間を後の人生に役立ていただきたいと願っています。
・'24の不耕起稲作は田んぼ全面に刈り草を敷き詰めて草を抑えて土を肥やす作戦に決めました。冬の間にどれだけ大量の草と山の落ち葉の堆肥を作れるが勝負の分かれ目と考えています。
・もし刈り草で不耕起稲作が成功したら、これからは落ち葉や草を農家の厄介物と見るのではなく、宝物にすることが出来ます。どうか力を貸して下さいませ。

があるのか、どんなことが好きなのか、ウーファーは何ができるのか、どんなウーファーが合っているところなのか、どういうウーファーは合わないところ
15years of organic farming.
I've been running my farm just by myself. So, wwoofers at my farm are expected to be independent.
I make koji, amazake to sell. I make miso(when it's cold), nukazuke pickles,
umeboshi for myself.
WE ARE IN URGENT NEED OF WWOOFers!
