100% organic


We are alternative people, and live an organic mentality


It is practiced to the extent that it is possible to lose weight of garbage, and hardly watch TV, the heating and the bath use firewood. In addition, we aim at a self-sufficient life such as handmade seasoning or doing carpentry work.

  • General diet including meat and fish
  • We put great effort into how to cook and what to eat
  • Our own grown vegetables generally
  • We always cook homemade meals
  • We never eat pre-made foods from supermarkets and department stores
  • We never buy obento (lunch boxes) at convenience stores and supermarkets
  • We never eat fast food such as McDonald’s and KFC, etc.

It is a small plantation in the foothills of Yatsugatake and 1000m altitude.

We grow over 50 kinds of vegetables, rice, and cereals with would grow and non-chemical fertilizers with our families. The reason why I insist on organic vegetables is that I want the food to be safe first and foremost, and the food is delicious and enjoyable every day. We, our children, and the Earth, we want to be healthy... Because I think so. Rinse the vegetables and cook the dishes... 

Surely there is a true abundance in such daily life. We are looking for people who will be working on the farm together. I want to learn together.

This is the Mt. Yatsugatake, Fujimi Plateau, about 1000 meters in altitude.
Since 1996, we have grown rice and about 50 kinds of vegetables. The house is an old private house of about 150 years. We renovated the second floor so that we could stay with WWOOFer. Summer is cool and comfortable. We would like to work together as a member of our family and have a vegetable dish.

The self-sufficiency rate of food is quite high, including seasonings.
Basically, only one woofer at a time is acceptable, so I have a lot of time to talk to you.

We do want to invite a WWOOFer to our place for 1~3weeks between August 21 and September 5.
