”We want to grow what we eat, what our children eat with our own hands.”
-This brought us to move to Ryujin-mura village, Wakayama in 1993.
We have grown our vegetables without using any pesticides at “Monpetokuwa farm” since we opened our cafe 25 years ago.
Thanks to you, our beautiful children are all grown up!
