Hello from Kyushu

Post by qshoefarmer » Wed Jan 24, 2018 9:11 am

Hello I'm originally from San Francisco but ive been in southern Japan for three years now. We started a small organic farm on about a 1/3 acre a few months ago. The land used to be used to grow green tea. I'm interested in learning more local farming techniques and connecting with farmers. Feel free to message me.

Hello qshoefarmer!
Hope the farming is getting off to a good start!
Welcome to the forum, lots of nice folks here.
Where in Kyushu are you? Would love to see some pictures if you have time.

Welcome to Japan Simple Life qshoefarmer,

Thank you for joining our little community, we might not be the liveliest forum but it's quite a friendly place and we don't get any of the drama some larger communities seem to get.

What are you looking to grow on your land ? Now is a good time to start preparing for potatoes if you are thinking of growing them this year.

You'll need to make a certain number of posts before you can use the private messaging system, it's an automatic anti spam measure that the forum software institutes. Can't remember what the exact number of posts is but think it might be around 10, it stops spammers signing up and immediately spamming the entire membership with offers of viagra and such like :lol:
