Customer's Review

We received many compliments from customers. Thank you so much.


This is our first purchase.
It was delicious as we expected. The price is also affordable for an organic product.

It is also nice to have everyone in the family to be able to eat it without any worry.
We will purchase it again.



I am glad that it is at an affordable price, even though it is an organic product.
I also like the taste.
Although I don't know much about rice, I keep enjoying the taste every day.



I have been eating Koshihikari rice for several years. Without thinking deeply, I continue to buy Koshihikari rice.

But since I saw a TV documentary of a farmer who is cultivating Sasanishiki rice on the other day, I became strongly attracted to the Sasanishiki rice.

I purchase this Sasanishiki rice because it is pesticide-free and radiologically tested.
The rice fit well with side dishes and I also like the taste. The delicious taste spreads well the more you taste and chew it.



I eat it with a mix of multigrain rice.
Or eat white rice together with brown rice when I'm hungry.
I eat it at almost every meal, but can't get bored of it. I think the taste is also good.



I have 4 years old and a 6 years old daughter, so I try as much as possible to choose the food for us to eat. This is rice that you can purchase without worry. I think the taste is also good.



I was relieved that the radiation check test results were published.
I think the taste is also good.

The Sasanishiki rice cultivated in the most suitable soil for rice production is cultivated with four farming methods.

1. Natural Return Farming Method

This method is done by doing farming as close to natural environment as possible.
- Done by increasing the amount of indigenous bacteria that have been established in each land.
- Radically improve the weak energy value of irrigation water.
- Cultivation takes measures that correspond to crop physiology as much as possible.
That is the 3 basic pillars for doing natural return farming method.

2. Aigamo Farming Method

A farming method is done with releasing Aigamo ducks (cross-breed of wild and domestic ducks) to the rice fields to feed on pests and weeds.
Because the ducks are swimming there, the water's turbidity produces a suppression effect.

This Aigamo farming method could suppress weeds which is the biggest problem for producing rice or doing pesticide-free / chemical fertilizer-free cultivation.

The Aigamo farming method really does kill two birds with one stone because it is a farming method that doesn't need to use pesticides at all.

A farming method that produces rice without disturbing the soil through tillage.
By doing this, you can see a traditional and natural scenes such as fireflies and loaches breed in the paddy fields and many birds passing by the field.

This method is very attractive because it only requires half fuel for the farming work, and suppress the methane gas which has a strong environmental impact.

Message from Rice Producer

In recent years, the concern for the safety of agricultural and livestock products has grown enormously.
The modernization and productivity improvement principal of agriculture from the postwar era turned agriculture products into chemical-based products, so consumers will have to pay for the consequence.
Considering those backgrounds, the price might be cheap although it is in large quantity.

Meanwhile in present, people become more consumptive.
Maybe it is best to not only concerned about the taste and quality, but also about the food safety as well.
Because there are people who are concerned about the food safety, agricultural products such as “pesticide-free” are currently in trend.
However, there are standards for those "pesticide-free" products. And there are many different cultivation methods.
We are building a safe and delicious farming method from many of those methods that are pesticide-free and doesn't use any chemical fertilizer.

須田 ミエ子 由利本荘産 農薬・化学肥料不使用 無農薬ササニシキ

  • 1. Keep on maintaining the field's fertility to make the constitution of rice stronger.
    It will make the rice plant become strong against diseases and pests.
  • 2. Reduce the number of chemical fertilizers and use natural fertilizer instead to harvest rich and nutritious food.

It is The Suda Corporation's way of thinking about agriculture.

Rice can actually grow even without pesticides and fertilizers.
It can grow with the original power from the rice, and it can still grow without human's hands.
That is the awaken power from the plants.

Besides, if you give only natural fertilizers to it, you can make safe rice grown only with substances that exist in nature.

With this statement as our base, we are providing brown rice, white rice, and black rice based on the four farming methods (Natural Return Farming Method, Aigamo Farming Method, No-till Farming Method, and Paper Multi Farming Method).
