Experience content The name "Yuki no Sato, Bishoen" reflects the program affiliates' wish of "expressing gratitude for the organic vegetables born from carefully-managed soil and the relationships formed with people encountered here." Soil that has been mixed with fertilizers made with due consideration for the ecosystem is soft and even has a sweet aroma.

The vegetables in the fields here are cultivated based on the principle that the quality of crops stems from the quality of the soil, and their freshness and sweet flavors have earned them a stellar reputation among locals.
