Azuki beans are the crude material of bean paste for Otabe. We want to grow such important ingredient with only one kind of Azuki produced by one farm producer. By doing so, we want to share the passion of making “Otabe” together.
(Otofuke-cho Tokachi, Hokkaido)
Azuki beans made at Kotake Farm are used to make coarse sweet red bean paste for Otabe from May 28th (till and the beginning of July).

Our perfect production of Auki beans is the result of the contribution of 80% nature and 20% humans.
