Shiga Kajiwara Farm is a small husband and wife team farm. We deliver fresh seasonal vegetables mainly to individual customers. Our farm is located in the scenic mountainous
area of Shinshu Matsumoto (formerly Shiga Village) of Nagano Prefecture.
We deliver about 50 different varieties of vegetables from fresh greens in spring to hearty root crops in winter. Our farm season is approximately 7 months.
As a farm that practices organic farming, we do not use chemical pesticides or synthetic fertilizers.
Instead, our vegetables grow on healthy soils with the help of pristine water and clean air this area is blessed with. We focus on building healthy soils by adding an appropriate amount of
organic nutrients, adopting crop rotation, returning crop residues back into the soil and using (whenever possible) cover crops. We use our home made plant based
fertilizer (ingredients: indigenous microbes, rice bran, soybeans and wood ashes).
