Nonomikai was built in the Uchino area where fresh vegetables abound and can be used in making delicious products! Members of this group are centered on three ladies who have worked in orchards, as strawberry growers and as beekeepers. ”We want to deliver delicious and safe products”, is the thought that goes into growing organic vegetables.

”Every morning for 10 minutes, I use chopsticks to remove insects from the chili peppers I am growing!” says Ms. Michiyo Nagano, a member who has been with Nonomikai from the beginning. Once every month, Ms. Nagano holds a cooking class where she teaches students local cuisine and about the traditional diet. As this cooking class is extremely popular, a lottery is held to determine who can participate! Among those lucky ones chosen have been students from Aichi Prefecture!

The goods Ms. Nagano learnt from the wisdom of her grandmother as a child have won high praise, including many awards in the Fukuoka Prefecture Agricultural Products Finished Goods Competition. ”The Japanese people should be thankful for yeast” is the belief of Ms. Nagano. Hardly using any sugar in her goods, Ms. Nagano lets yeast ferment which is healthier for the body.

There have been many enquiries from people who have received souvenirs from Nonomikai. Nonomikai has also taken orders from all over Japan. One of the most popular items is Jyangara Natto. This dish is made from natto (fermented beans), rice-malt, chili peppers and soy sauce and small amounts of burdock root and carrot. Whether with bread or rice, this dish is delicious!
