Great to see a positive story. God Speed Durrants.

I have thought of doing something like that myself, of course "organic farming" is actually less sustainable than conventional farming and the claim that pesticide-free dried corn is a "healthy alternative" to store bought popcorn is just pure nonsense. Without using any fungicides on corn there is probably a lot of fusarium infection resulting in deoxynivalenol (DON mycotoxin) which is something you best not eat. Japan has very strict limits on DON in popcorn sold in supermarkets.

Nice as a hobby. But Japan needs much more professional farmers with high productivity to feed its population.

Good luck for expansion.

I myself like to grow vegetables and fruits in my 200 square meter garden.

Good to see more articles like this JT on biracial couples doing business.

We need more dairy & beef farming here and fewer handouts to inefficient rice farmers. Good luck to these two.
