✔️About us
We believe in co-existence; whether that being with the nature or people in the world. As a part of the ecosystem, we cannot live alone. On our farm, we grow organic blueberries and succulent plants, make products with blueberries, and run a wood-working studio where people can come and learn. We also invite children from low-income families to participate in farming and wood working.

✔️ Farming Experience Farm : since 1977 / Host : since 2016

✔️ Host Type
An educational farm: blueberries, succulent plants, wood-working studio

✔️ Main Crop
Blueberries, succulents, polyalias and various flowers and deer.

✔️ Farming Method
We believe that what we eat determines a great deal of who we are. Therefore, we do not use any chemical fertilizers or pesticides. Instead, we utilize wood waste from wood-working studio, deer manure from our farm and EM ingredients as the natural fertilizer. Also, the residues such as blueberry leaves are fed as a part of deer food. The toilet at our farm is built environmentally friendly, and implements EM-purifying system.
