Why Natural Farming

About Naturally Grown Vegetables

Naturally grown vegetables contain higher levels of vitamins and minerals than conventionally grown vegetables. We also do not use fertilizer to keep the soil and plants healthy. We grow over 40 varieties of

vegetables, such as Momotaro Tomato, Lettuce, Shungiku. Mizuna, radish, carrots, okra and cucumbers.

Mycorrhizal Fungi

Mycorrhizal fungi form mycorrhizal associations and live

symbiotically with plants. This collaboration began 400 million years ago, when plants first lived on land. 

Fungi provide plants with the nutrients and water they need and increase their resistance to pests and disease. 

Plants photosynthesizes sugars and fats in their leaves and transport them to fungi through their roots. This is rich in carbon from the atmosphere. The fungus absorbs more than a third (36%) of carbon

dioxide emissions each year and stores it underground for almost 10 years, even after the mycorrhizal fungus dies.

Why Natural Farming?

As can be seen from statistical changes over the past 70 years, the vital nutritional value of vegetables is rapidly declining. 

This is the result of conventional cultivation using pesticides, chemical fertilizers, and hybrid seeds (F1 seeds). 

Before the widespread use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides, most farmers used natural ingredients to grow vegetables. The vegetables were nutritious and safe. 

Today, mainstream conventional farming emphasizes growth promotion, standardization of harvested vegetables, and mass production. This is the "industrialization of agriculture. Nutritional value is second.

Key points of naturally grown vegetables

Prioritize the growth of vegetables by their own power. 

Harvest time and growth speed are unique to each vegetable.

Longer lasting and less prone to damage

Much higher nutritional value 

*Fixed seeds are seeds that can be harvested from cultivated vegetables, making it possible to grow vegetables that are suited to the local climate.

F1 seeds, which are crosses of different species, grow faster and can be homogenized, but their nutritional value is drastically reduced.

At our farm fields, we repeatedly cultivate and harvest F1 varieties of vegetables to make them as suitable for the climate and climate as possible.

Our Momotaro (usually an F1 variety) is a fixed variety that we grow ourselves.
