Shincha 2012

March 19, 2012

shincha harvest shizuokaOnly 1 month and a few days left until this year’s shincha harvest. Today, some of our farmers gathered at our house to send out the Shincha Newsletter to our Japanese customers, something we do every year before the shincha harvest. Folding and stuffing the envelopes took an entire day!

Looking at the names and addresses on the labels, we can’t help thinking about the wonderful people who will be getting our shincha. Even though we haven’t met many of you before, we feel like you’re family.

For those of you in Japan receiving these newsletters, please look forward to it!
