Where does your fresh produce come from?
How can you prepare locally harvested ingredients?
Farm to Table will be conducted in English and is on a trial-basis – it’s likely that we’ll encounter some ad-hoc moments and not everything will be clockwork.
about farm canning
homegrown, women-owned local goodness
As a homegrown, women-owned business, Farm Canning is all about promoting a sustainable food lifestyle for positive social impact. Local foodies may be familiar with their wide variety of seasonal food products (often in distinct glass jars) made with fresh ingredients direct from local farmers.
In addition, Farm Canning offers educational workshops and Instagram-worthy catering focused on organic ingredients, healthy food for all tastes, and minimizing food waste. In the past, they have also hosted learning gardens and farming experiences in Shonan Kokusai Mura (Shonan International Village).

This has nothing to do with sports? Why is Samurai Sports collaborating with Farm Canning?
There is admittedly few direct connections with sports. Partnering with Farm Canning was partly borne from the fact that we know many Tokyo-based triathletes train around the Miura Peninsula – but hardly know the area or the people who live in Hayama, Zushi, Yokosuka, etc. Despite its relative proximity to Tokyo, few are aware of the abundant natural resources that play a vital role in sustaining the local economy around the peninsula, such as daikon radish and maguro tuna. We believe this experience can play a role in narrowing that gap as a means of enhancing community relations and educating foreign nationals about local farming.
