On a small farm in Northern California the workers are putting in long days. 12 hour shifts are the new normal as the staff at Hikari Farms is making sure it’s San Francisco Bay Area clients get the organic Japanese vegetables they need.
The farm, owned by a nonagenarian Japanese couple and managed by their daughter, is certified organic and the team continue to farm by hand. The array of vegetables is typically sold to specialty shops and restaurants in San Francisco.
On Hakari Farms the crops are under large greenhouse tents where the rooms are climate controlled and feel “like your in a womb.” That’s how it was explained to me by my daughter, a farmer & employee at the farm. In this video she takes us around the greenhouses on a tour of her job. Enjoy! 🌱
