*There are no limits to attendee numbers for our Tochigi farm events. This will be our last weekend framing event of 2018!
Thank you for everyone who attended / supported our meetup this year! Kokko Farm is onto new endeavours for 2019, and we will be cultivating new farm land with easier access for events. In collaboration with Ikeda Farm, we will be throwing a bonfire grill at the end to celebrate! For this event, we will spend a significant amount of time cultivating an abandoned farmland. After we collect all the weeds, we will create a bonfire with it, and grill some sweet potatoes together.
