The philosophy and practice of Natural Farming arose from Mokichi Okada's research, in the late 1930's and 1940's. He discovered that if our agricultural methods respect the soil and enhance its innate power, then our food will always be rich in natural energy and will nourish and support our health. Human beings can thrive only by living in harmony with Nature. 

Okada discovered that everything on Earth, including vegetables and fruits, has a visible, physical side and an invisible, spiritual side.

Healthy uncontaminated crops have an abundance of this invisible energy, which gives more energy to those who consume the crops.

Unlike some of the practices of organic farming, Nature Farming holds this view of Nature as fundamental. Although we in MOA formulate Nature Farming Guidelines and certify the crops of Nature Farming in Japan and in other nations, we never forget that Okada's view Nature is the basis of this Nature Farming practice.

 In the United States, MOA has published the Hawaii version of the MOA Nature Farming Guidelines. In conjunction with the Hawaii Department of Agriculture and the University of Hawaii's College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources, MOA is working to establish a model of sustainable agriculture through Nature Farming that is suitable for the tropical climate.

Here in Fresno County, an important agricultural hub of the U.S., we began Nature Farming in 1999. Though still a beginning, crops are enjoying the power of Nature, and we are receiving excellent comments from consumers.
