Our Partnered Farms for Organic Tea Leaves
Maruyoshi currently holds contracts with five tea farmers in the Tsuchiyama area. These partners are some of the region’s most committed members devoted to making top-quality tea while preserving local tea industry traditions. Currently, 3 of our 125 total contracted acres of farm land grow tea leaves purely organically. The organic farms are located separately from the others, and apply special growing methods such as carefully maintaining soil quality and cultivating with environmentally friendly methods. This is all to achieve the utmost quality, even by organic standards. These five farms work together closely, sometimes even in competition, in the ongoing pursuit of quality improvement, to eventually expanding organic production throughout the area.
