"On the cheese" is a farm hotel where guests can stay on the second floor of the cheese factory of Sakane Farm, which focuses on pasture-based dairy farming.
They started this hotel with the hope that many people would experience the beauty of nature as well as the life with cows.
Guests staying at the hotel can tour the farm and experience milking for free. Of course they can purchase dairy products.
The house is equipped with a kitchen, toilet, bathroom, and drum-type washing machine, and long-term stays are also possible.
Sakane Farm is in its fourth generation of dairy farming in Taiki Town. The land is rich in nature, with a beautiful view of the Hidaka mountain range.
We make our living by raising cows on pasture and milking them after they give birth.
First of all, we are particular about the soil that forms the foundation for the cows' feed. The soil on which the cows graze is regularly inspected to ensure that microorganisms are active, and is managed to provide only the necessary nutrients.
We aim to create a dairy farm that can be passed on to the next generation by operating an environmentally friendly dairy farm without placing an excessive burden on the land.
Furthermore, at Sakane Farm, we are working to create an environment where cows can fulfill their natural behavioral needs and spend their time with less stress.
We have acquired the "Animal Welfare Livestock Production Certification," a certification system for farms that provide a comfortable environment for livestock animals, and aim to create a farm where cows can spend their time comfortably and healthily.
