Sustainable and unique farming methods
Microorganisms live in the reeds.
Especially in summer, reeds contain a large amount of microorganisms, and when cut and mixed with rice bran and water, they ferment and become good compost.
Crops grown without the use of any pesticides, herbicides, or chemical fertilizers have a much different taste and last much longer.
Ancient rice includes red rice, black rice, and green rice.
These are varieties that have inherited the characteristics of wild species and contain rich minerals and vitamins.
These are blended together with other minor grains and sold as a product called "Kokumotsu Zanmai".
Just by mixing a little of it with white rice, you can enjoy it even more.
Normally, when we take our home-grown soybeans to soy sauce, miso, or tofu manufacturers, they won't buy them because their production lines are designed to meet the standards for imported soybeans, and they have to readjust their soybeans every time they use non-standard domestic soybeans.
So we make our own soy sauce, marinate chopped garlic from Kyushu, and sell it as "229 Soy Sauce," which is slowly aged in a tunnel in Karatsu, Saga Prefecture.
We also produce other products, such as "Ito's Salt," which is made by adding rock salt to salt from Nagasaki's Goto Sea and adjusting the magnesium content to an appropriate level, all of which take into consideration the effects on the body.
