We believe strongly in growing healthy, safe organic food. Although our farm is not certified organic, we follow to the letter Japan's organic crop producers and processors regulations. All our spices are 100% natural, 100% pure, 100% delicious! We use preventative pest control methods such as row covers, crop rotation, crop biodiversity, and composting for whole-farm soil fertility. Of course, under absolutely no circumstances would we use chemical fertilizers, GMO’s, or chemical pesticides.
