Corn Picking Near Sapporo Hokkaido with Private Transfer

Harvest your own summer vegetables near Sapporo!
Hokkaido corn is very popular for a good reason!
Enjoy sweet, freshly harvested corn with the kids.

Private Transfer service available from your hotel in Sapporo!
Just a 40min drive from central Sapporo, you can be surrounded by fields of produce for as far as you can see. Harvest fresh corn yourself, and taste the corn right on the fields! Collect enough to take home as a souvenir, too!

The farmer's tip: "The sweetest and most delicious corn are the ones picked early morning!" You'll be harvesting the "Sweet Corn Megumi Gold” type of corn, that has a sugar content as high as 17 in the early morning! Wow! That means this corn is even sweeter than a melon!

"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.

We would love for you to enjoy the true taste of Hokkaido's popular sweet corn through this harvesting experience. The harvest is ready from July in greenhouses, and from August to late September you can harvest directly on the fields. Put your farmer's hat on, take a deep breath of the morning fresh air, feel the warm sun above you, and look for some big, delicious corn! You can even take a juicy bite into the freshly picked corn raw! Yoshida Farm will also prepare the corn boiled or charcoal grilled. You are sure to be shocked by the sweet taste of Hokkaido corn!

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!
