A Farm with
Diverse Culture and Food


Base Side Farm

Base Side Farm began with a simple idea: “I want to cook the vegetables that my Australian husband wants to eat.” With that thought in mind, and being an office worker who had never even visited a farm, I started studying farming. I took classes and started training in Mizuho, Nishitama, Tokyo in February 2018.

We’re growing items that are considered “Western vegetables” such as kale, beets and butternut squash. For ex-pats living in Japan, they’re a treat from back home. For Japanese people who have lived abroad, they bring back fond memories. For everyone else, they’re a chance to try something a little different than traditional Japanese vegetables.

You can visit Base Side Farm for a hands-on farming experience at one of our vegetable garden events or a food-based cultural exchange where we welcome adults and children from a wide variety of backgrounds. All of our activities are conducted using both English and Japanese so please join us for some fun learning about farming, food and culture.



You are what you eat

The types of vegetables we grow are high in nutritional value. Because of this, they provide great health benefits even in small quantities.

Little Farmers Project

Children and their parents can experience vegetable farming in English. We start with soil preparation and planting then move on to care, harvesting and clean-up. As we work and learn, we grow along with the vegetables!


Base Side Farm is always looking for volunteers. If you are interested, please feel free to contact us.
