A fundamental of this farm is the use of organic fertilizers. The shell of Takezaki Crab, a local specialty of Tara, is rich in chitosan and is mixed into the compost. By feeding asparagus chitosan, immunity is increased and cells are activated! This fills the asparagus with vitality and makes it possible to reduce pesticides and fertilizers. Growth also becomes healthy and quality is greatly improved. Takezaki Crab helps a lot when it comes to the deliciousness in "Forest Asparagus".

[Producer Introduction] A-noker
The farm's name is A-noker - pronounced "A" for apple "no-ka". The "A" stands for "agriculture", "asparagus" and "Ando", the name of the farm's representative. Also, "A" is the first letter in the alphabet, so represents being first and being at the top, and therefore is used with the hope of wanting to be at the pinnacle of asparagus production.
Mt. Tara is counted as one of the "100 best forest water sources" in Japan chosen by the Forestry Agency. This clear water from the Tara Mountains is used to feed this "Forest Asparagus". The forest on the mountainside is perfect for asparagus cultivation as it is not overly hot in summer, has good wind exposure and its temperature remains constant. Due to this, the asparagus do not become easily diseased or rotten. With safety & security at the fore, it is possible to grow asparagus with the minimum amount of pesticides here. Asparagus that have absorbed lots of water from the Tara Mountains are filled with energy. They grow steadily as they soak up the sunlight.
