Où se trouve votre ferme?

My family farm is located on the southern tip of Japan in Kumamoto Prefecture.All ofour fields are located with a 28 rayon de km de notre ville natale

À quoi ressemble votre ferme? Quelle est la taille de votre ferme? Que cultivez-vous ou élevez-vous?

I work with my father and two older brothers on our family farm. I currently produce Japanese Green tea on 10 ha with the traditional method calledKamairi-cha. We also raise about 20 beef cattle -for breeding which feed on forage as well as homemade rice silage.

I believe that the Roundtable will be an awesome experience. It is exciting to learn about the agricultural scene in various parts of the world.
