  • Yamakoshi Alpaca Farm

    Nigata Pref. Nagaokashi Yamakoshitakezawa Party 169
    The Yamakoshi Alpaca Farm is open to visitors between May and November each year. The Farm came into existence as the result of a donation of three alpacas from a donor in Colorado in the U.S.A., who expressed the hope that they might help to cheer people up in the village of Yamakoshi (which had been seriously affected by an earthquake a few years previously). The community of Yubu began looking after the three alpacas. The number of alpacas has grown since then, and Yubu is now a lively area that large numbers of tourists visit to see these fluffy, adorable animals. The Yamakoshi Alpaca Farm is located around 25-minute drive from the Ojiya Interchange of the Kan-Etsu Expressway.

    Nigata Pref. Minamiuonumagunyuzawamachi Kandatsu 750-1
    This all-weather pick-your-own strawberry farm, Uonuma's first, is a five-minute drive from Yuzawa Interchange. Open from January to the end of June, people of all ages can enjoy picking strawberries rain, snow, or shine. Guests can pick sweet and juicy Echigohime strawberries (a variety exclusive to Niigata Prefecture) raised with great attention to their watering and cultivation in the farm's three big greenhouses. The farm is wheelchair accessible, as the strawberries can be picked without bending over and the greenhouses were built with wide passages. Visitors can choose to either take home their strawberries or enjoy the all-you-can-eat option. The farm also has a rest area where you can eat your strawberries.

    Very nice family run business with delicious strawberries you can pick by yourself. We weren't able to have the all-you-can-eat option but we got three punnets to take back to the hotel. Very quick...

    Niigata Prefecture Myoko City Suginozawa Sasagake Peak
    This ranch in the Sasagamine Highlands is a 40-minute drive from Myoko-Kogen Interchange. The ranch, which was founded in 1902, is located along the promenade that circles Sasagamine. It sits on a 1,300 meter-high gently sloping plateau surrounded by a number of mountains over 2,000 meters tall, including Mt. Myoko, Mt. Hiuchi, Mt. Yakeyama, and Mt. Kurohime. The ranch puts its cattle out to pasture around June each year. Visitors can watch see them leisurely chew grass all over the ranch from early summer when the yellow buttercups first bloom until the fall when the trees get their autumn foliage. The ranch is home to a number of large Japanese elm trees, creating a scenic beauty evocative of some far-off European country.

    10月第2週の土曜日に訪問。木々が紅葉し、牧場の緑、空の青とともにとてもきれいな1日でした。笹ヶ峰グリーンハウスに車を止めて1時間程度散策。宇棚の清水、清水ヶ池を経由してグリーンハウスに戻ってきました。中でも宇棚の清水は平成の名水百選でもあり、地中から水が湧いているところや、清らかな流れを見ることができました。

    Niigata Niigata-shi Kita-ku Niizaki 2757
    This farm tries a lot of different things, focused around their years-long development of fruit tomatoes, with strawberry cultivation, dried fruit tomato production, ham and original sausage making, and more. Their efforts are cultivation in a low chemical, low fertilizer environment, they were certified as an Ecofarmer by Niigata prefecture in 2004. They have been working on fruit tomatoes, as sweet and flavorful as any fruit, since 1985. They grow in an environment designed to increase the sugar content of tomatoes, making them every bit as sweet and aromatic as any fruit. Most years, you can also enjoy strawberry picking in the greenhouses from February through May.

    Several friends and I visited here in the spring. Many of the strawberry greenhouses had been picked clean by holiday travelers but there were still enough for us to pick and eat our fill. Would have...
