*Accelerating depopulation and aging. Agricultural business in “Kyushu’s least known village” and the road to carbon neutrality. * I am DIYing a 100-year-old cowshed and using it as an office.

Nora Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Yamae Village, Kuma District, Kumamoto Prefecture, Representative Director: Junya Yanagawa) wants to spread its products to many people under the name “Norashigotojin”, and has established an official website and shop site. (scheduled to be released in May) has been launched. Furthermore, we actively share information about our production, harvesting, and other activities on YouTube and other SNS platforms.

* Norainu x Norashigoto person (farmer) = Nora Co., Ltd.*

Our company, Nora Co., Ltd., has agriculture as its main business. The three co-founders, who were originally self-employed farmers, felt the freedom and hunger of a wild dog that was left to roam free without a collar, and this was the reason why the three co-founders were originally self-employed farmers. Because it matched.

The official website of Nora Co., Ltd. can be accessed from the link below. https://nora-fromyamae.co.jp/

V (broadcast on October 28, 2023)” Yamae Village, which was chosen as the city with the least number of hashtags in Kyushu and Okinawa, is actually a chestnut village. Located in the southern part of Kumamoto Prefecture, with a population of over 3,000 people, the village’s specialty is “Yamae chestnuts.” The Yamae Chestnut Festival, which is held once a year, attracts about 10,000 people from inside and outside the prefecture. They are also known as the chestnuts presented to Emperor Showa, and at the time, production exceeded 100 tons, but due to aging, depopulation, and old chestnut trees, the harvest is now only about one-third. I did.
Meanwhile, in April of this year, we received GI certification (Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries). Anticipating further growth in demand from this fiscal year, Noramoe Co., Ltd. is working on production and sales preparations for Yamae Chestnuts.

*GI certification: Geographical Indication Protection System. A system that protects as intellectual property the names of products that have characteristics such as quality and social evaluation that were born from natural, humanistic, and social factors unique to the region (Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries)
At the entrance to Yamae Village, a signboard reading “Kuri no Sato” will welcome you.
* Selection of ingredients with high nutritional value and low distribution volume*

Nora Co., Ltd. mainly cultivates chili peppers, wood ear mushrooms, sweet chili peppers, and mountain chestnuts. As mentioned earlier, Yamae Village is located in a mountainous area, and the agricultural area is only 4% of the total area. Therefore, we select, produce, and sell crops that are easy to manage on limited land and that are easy to pursue profit. In addition to the traditional online sales for individuals, the sales route has shifted to direct wholesale sales to restaurants and confectionery shops within and outside the prefecture, as well as sales to corporations. We hope that this will increase profits and lead to job creation for young people in Yamae Village. Amacho chili peppers are being planted. As a seasonal item, it is in high demand from restaurants such as yakitori restaurants.

In addition, the current mayor of Yamae Village made a “Zero Carbon City Declaration” in December 2020, and we are actively working on decarbonization. At Nora Co., Ltd., we are promoting decarbonization in the agricultural field, such as “biochar” that utilizes agricultural waste such as rice husks, pruned chestnut branches, burs, and wood ear mushroom beds, and “extending the mid-drying period in rice fields.” We strive to protect the environment and create new added value.
At [2024 Decarbonization EXPO in Tokyo Big Sight], we asked CTO Nishida of TOWING Co., Ltd. about future decarbonization trends. For inquiries, please contact: ������ nora.yamae60315@gmail.com
