Letters to Iketani

Photo_56 Letters arrive in the village of Iketani from around Japan.  People who ordered rice from the village send grateful messages to farmers, sometimes with smiling pictures.  Those warm messages circulate through the village on their community bulletin.  The farmers are delightful to learn that the rice they had raised with the utmost care has brought happiness to people around Japan.

One of the purposes of the direct distribution of rice from Iketani is to create a link between farmers in the small village and people in big cities.  Since January, customers receive not only rice but also “Rice News”, a handmade newsletter from farmers.  Let’s write a letter to the farmers!
