10th generations of farmers. It took me 29 yeas for me to look for the best way to make high qualty organic brown rice. I am happy to share my delicious product with all my customers. I hope everyone can enjoy it! I am th eldest son of a farming family from Niigata. I was disabled by polio when I was 2 years old. That didn't stop me from being a farmer. I am growing rice, vegetables and grains, but without any agricultural chemicales. It is pure natural farming. It is my passion, because I love nature, especially the rich soil of my farm. When I was a child, I played in the river. I oftern fished, and loved rolling around in the rice paddies. When I was in elementarly school, an accident occurred to the carps my great grandfater kept. Many of the carps' eyes popped out and their backs were horribly bent. It was a sad memory. We found out that this had been caused by the wastewater from nearby factories. In my thirties, I could start smelling an unnatural muddy odor from the rice fields around my house. Once again, I was confronted to the many damages chemicals were causing to nature. Every year I try to improve my soil and my crops. One day, I saw the story of Mr. Kimura and his Miracle Apple. He is known as a great farmer who grows the most wonderful all natural apples. It inspired me. It convinced me that natural farming methods was the only way to go. It is challenging but I love with a passion the work I do.
