The surname “Shito” was given by the Oshu Fujiwara-shi family as a proof that they were treated with hospitality. It is said that Daichan Farm started when Daisuke, family’s eldest son, who had lost all his dreams, tilled the land with his father. The farm helped him become mentally and physically healthy. Today, we ship the cherries and apples we have grown with great care throughout Japan. Please see our website for more details
