A goldfish jumped out of the goldfish bowl.
Where did it go?
Hidden in the red polka dots of the curtains.
Hey, I ran away again.
This time it’s a potted plant with red flowers.
Oh my gosh, I ran away again.
Between the milk and the eggs, in the grass on the farm, inside the Cheese Wonder box…

What is “Inventive Cheesecake” CHEESE WONDER?
After continuing to pursue the possibilities of cheesecake, we finally found the combination and ratio of “Cheese Wonder”.
The key to its deliciousness is the combination of the texture of the raw cheese soufflé, made with pasture-raised milk and free-range eggs raised on our own free-range dairy farm in Hidaka-cho, Hokkaido, the raw cheese mousse, and the crunchy cookies. It’s truly amazingly delicious.
We produce raw materials in-house while working on experiments and problem-solving to reduce environmental impact with an eye to the future.

1) Using pasture-raised milk and eggs grown on our own farm
The raw materials for CHEESE WONDER are cows raised in a healthy manner in conditions close to nature, so we were able to make cheesecakes with milk that is rich in flavor and goes well with sweets. The eggs used for our raw cheese soufflé are also fresh eggs from healthy chickens raised at our own free-range chicken farm.
[Image 8:×1280.jpg] 2) Two-layered structure of fresh cheese soufflé and fresh cheese mousse that are both moist and fluffy.
By not baking the soufflé dough, which would normally be finished by baking, we created a two-layered structure with the rich and moist texture of raw cheese soufflé as the base, and a fluffy texture topped with fresh cheese mousse with the flavor of cheese.
Since our products are delivered frozen, you can enjoy a variety of textures by changing the thawing time to suit your preferences.
[Image 9:×1280.jpg] 3) Pressed almond cookies with a particular crunchy texture
Cookie dough made with rich almond powder is sandwiched between hot griddles and baked to create a crunchy yet moist and rich finish that allows you to enjoy the buttery flavor even more. By applying a thin film of oil to the entire cookie, we prevent the moisture from transferring to the raw cheese soufflé that is placed on top, ensuring that the crunchy texture lasts for a long time.
[Image 10:×1000.jpg] 4) Cookie shape that is easy to eat and represents the brand Due to the large size, I created a split in the “CHEESE WONDER” W motif to make it easier to cut the cookie in half. It is finished in a new form that you have never seen before, and you can enjoy just looking at it.

The secret to Cheese Wonder’s deliciousness lies in its grazing. Our mission is to make delicious sweets without putting a burden on the global environment, animals, or people. Environmentally
regenerative/grazing dairy farming
Utopia Agriculture is an agricultural production corporation that challenges sustainable and delicious sweets making, free-range dairy farming, and cage-free chicken farming under the theme of “GRAZE EXPERIMENTS.” Sweets are something you don’t have to eat. We aim to make truly delicious sweets that you can truly enjoy without having a negative impact on the global environment, because we still want to eat them.
Cow burp contains methane gas, which is said to be about 30 times more greenhouse gas than CO2, and there are general concerns about its impact on the environment, as most of the cow’s feed relies on grains imported from overseas. We are building a system/sustainable business model that creates cycles between cows and soil, farms and poultry farms, and sweets and farms.
[Image 11:×1589.jpg ]
Pastured milk, which is extracted from cows that live freely and stress-free on vast pastures in Hidaka-cho, Hokkaido, mainly eating green grass, is characterized by its delicious aroma and high nutritional value, as it is rich in carotene and vitamins.
We feed the confectionary scraps and strawberry stems from the group’s confectionery manufacturing process to chickens at our poultry farm, and the chicken manure is spread on the pastures of our pasture-raised dairy farm. In addition to chicken droppings, pastures also contain excrement from cows, and as the cows walk around on it, the soil becomes fertile, and high-quality pasture grows again, creating a circular system.
*By feeding the chickens with candy scraps, industrial waste is eliminated, and the eggs themselves become richer and more delicious. Carbon offsets achieved on pastured dairy farms
At our company’s farm in Hidaka-cho, Hokkaido, experimental results have shown that we store 11 tons of CO2 per hectare every year, with a constant CO2 storage capacity of 273 tons/ha.
273 tons is equivalent to the CO2 emitted by 230 cars per year, or equivalent to the CO2 emitted by 100 ordinary households.
Additionally, since each cow emits 10 tons of CO2 every year, a farm with an area of ​​32 ha can offset the CO2 emissions equivalent to 35 cows. (FY2023)
