Description

This project is co-organized with "Sugiura Farm" that engages in organic farming for pursuing food safety and an environmentally friendly society. The owner of the farm is Mr. Sugiura, who is the only one man taking care of 2 hectares of farmland abandoned by local people because they became too old to keep working on the farm. He cultivates, harvests crops, even makes fertilizer and processes the harvest into products. He is working not only for crops, but also for conserving the environment and the beautiful scenery of living fields in the countryside of Japan.
