Asparagus is a famous spring vegetable, loved by many in Hokkaido.

"Yoshida Farm" has more than 20 years of experience in farming activities for the public. The farm especially wants children to know the true taste of healthy vegetables, and makes it a goal to grow them organically with low-pesticide.

This asparagus harvesting activity invites you to enjoy the great vegetables of Hokkaido's spring. The harvest takes place in greenhouses or out in the fields, depending on the point in season.

Take a juicy bite into the freshly cut asparagus raw, boiled or charcoal grilled; three ways to enjoy one rich vegetable! You are sure to be shocked by the natural, fresh taste of this Hokkaido asparagus!

The farm is not usually open to visitors from abroad, but we will have our English-speaking staff joining you from Sapporo as your personal translator, making this special activity available to you!
