Guide : Michel KAISER

Hello everyone, I am Michel, a french guy who likes nature, simple life, and organic food ! I came to Miyama in 2018 and started organic farming because I think that if you want to make things change, you first have to change yourself.

In my fields and greenhouses I only use organic fertilizers :
- Rice husk ash, which I make myself
- Okara (soy pulp), which a get from the local tofe makers

I don't use any chemicals to prevent desease or pest only :
- Wood vinegar
- EM (Effective Micro-organism) which I also "grow" myself from molasse

Miyama is surrounded by moutntains, that's why we have a very good and clean water, it makes the rice and vegetables taste great.

I want everyone to eat tasty and healthy fryits and vegetables. Eating organic food is a simple start to change yourself, preserve the environment and support local community and small farmers.

I would be happy if you want to come to my field, see by yourself and having a little chat!

Thank you !
