About our Farm.
Thank you for visiting our website.
Our farm is one of the few apple farms in the Kanto area. Please visit us in the charming town of Sayama in Numata city in Gunma and enjoy being surrounded by the calm beauty of nature. It’s been 60 years since we started this farm and we have dedicated ourselves to studying the intricacies of apples ever since. Our dream has been to be a farm that creates warm memories of apple picking experiences, and a lasting impression of what a delicious apple ought to be.
How we make delicious apples
In order to produce good quality apples, the apple farm must be 6-14℃ average throughout a year and have a variation in temperature within each day.
Japanese apple farms (such as those in Aomori and Nagano) average around 10℃.
Our apple farm in Numata meets these temperature standards.
Typically apple farms utilize chemicals to produce larger crops, but we are committed to producing apples that are completely organic. This results in apples that contains more sugar and ripen quickly.
The apples require particular care all year long. This includes removing subpar fruit in the spring in order to maintain the quality of the apple harvest, regulation of the colors of the apples, and the utilization of Smart Fresh technology.
