Farm Kazuto is located at an altitude of 900 meters above sea level in the valley between Mt. Iizuna and Mt. Reisenji in North Nagano prefecture.
Even the summer time, the temperature here is only 15° Celsius in the morning when we harvest. A big change in temperature from morning to afternoon is part of what makes the vegetables so sweet. And from the national park above, the runoff from melted snow and the abundance of minerals pours into the well-drained lands.
In addition to this natural environment, Farm Kazuto uses our own original organic fertilizer that we developed, full of nutrients. It is made with byproducts from a local cattle farm, residue from a local fish market, and naturally fallen leaves. We only supplement with inorganic fertilizer from the market when the naturally produced nutrition is not sufficient.
Our ideal vegetable is a well-balanced vegetable. A vegetable that has both amazing taste and reliability can be hard to find. Once you eat ours, you will realize the difference between the natural tastes we grow and what can be found at any market.
Eating fresh vegetables is a wonderful experience.
But we understand that not everyone can visit us and enjoy the fresh and light flavors we provide.
That’s why we developed a way to ship our freshly harvested vegetables each morning directly from the fields. They are delivered to you through a refrigerated delivery service. Now you can enjoy freshness at home!
Farm Kazuto uses the minimum amount of agricultural chemicals for the maximum amount of nutrients.
We use special care, but because of our natural practices, you might see small bugs in the box or inside of the shell. It is rare, but if you experience this, we do sincerely apologize.
In order to maintain the quality of our vegetables, Farm Kazuto believes that it is riskier for our customers to use the crops that even bugs don’t want to eat.
We hope you understand our policy and agree with our practices.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
