What is Orikasa farm?
The most agricultural zone in Hokkaido, Makubetsu in Tokachi (Makubetsu) in townIt is a plantation that puts emphasis on naturally cultivated farming methods of unique fertilizer-free pesticide using green manure. In the era when mechanization advanced and we began to increase productivity using chemical fertilizer and chemical pesticideBecause of my desire to "regain the rich land of the Hokkaido pioneering era"We introduced green manure that does not use chemical fertilizer to the farm and turned it into a farm producing potatoes. Ten years since natural cultivation began to aim for "safe, secure, self-sustaining agriculture"Ken Orikasa passed down his thoughts and was able to realize the production of natural vegetables that can be pesticide free.
Making farm with green manure
Green manure is not harvested plant cultivated raised in the field, but by plowing along with plowed soil in the field as it isIt is to utilize it as natural fertilizer. As a merit of using green manure · By improving the structure of the soil, drainage, water retention capacity etc. are enhanced.· Increase of organic matter promotes the propagation of microorganisms in the soil.· It improves the balance among microorganisms in the soil and prevents the occurrence of pests. We can keep the field healthy. It is a fertilizer that agrees with the feeling that Orikasa Ken's "want to regain rich land".
Commitment of Ken Orikasa Organic Azuki Producer
Organic red beans bred in Orikasa farm have been carefully nurtured by sticking to organic pesticides and chemical fertilizers. Natural cultivation is still a new field, cultivation with fertilizer-free pesticide is also very difficult,Orikasa also received advice from experts in soil science, microbiology and agricultural research at Obihiro University of Agriculture, Hokkaido,We are constantly conducting research and building the field. In addition to challenging difficult areas such as natural cultivation of agricultural crops, we are certainly stuck with the taste of crops.If consumers feel that taste is not delicious just by cultivating in nature, there is no real spread.Mr. Orikasa thought so, experimentally planted crops of 30 to 35 varieties only potatoes each year,I am studying which one of taste and quality is most suitable for natural cultivation. Mr. Orikasa who thinks "having yourself firmly with reason for deliciousness" is important,I am convinced that the reason will be clearly seen by further research.

"I can not spontaneously cultivate unless I can understand the cycle of nature"The challenge to natural cultivation without using chemical fertilizer has begun. I taught Kimura's clay making from the beginning, repeatedly met with the pioneers of natural cultivationCurrently, 28ha of the total area of 75ha, about 30% of the total has become a field of natural cultivation. In the future aiming for natural cultivation that can continue on a larger scale,I am constantly striving to contribute to the development of agriculture in Hokkaido that is also a wish of Mr. Kimura.
