NamaYasai LLP

Established in 2005, we are Natural Agriculture™ growers of Japanese vegetables and herbs.

Based in Lewes, in the county of East Sussex, England, our principal range starts in spring with mitsuba, mizuna, karashina, shungiku and wasabina. From May we have kabu, nira and daikon then summer brings shiso, kyuuri, edamame, shishitou and nasu. In autumn kabocha, komatsuna, tatsoi, gobo, hakusai and naga-negi are added to the summer range and we are slowly building up stocks of numerous lesser-known traditional Japanese vegetables and herbs. An unsurpassed range of mixed salad leaves and herbs is available to the catering trade from mid April to early December.

No pesticides, no herbicides and no artificial fertilizers are used and although our methods mean a shorter growing season the result is a taste second to none. Japanese varieties are used throughout. All produce that we supply has been picked from the plant the same day and we do not buy in from other growers or wholesalers – everything we supply is grown by us on our land. We aim to be your favourite place to buy fresh Japanese vegetables.

The first sansho, ashitaba and naga-imo were harvested in 2007 but this was the one year when exceptionally low summer temperatures meant that we had no edamame available for sale. Yields from edamame were however excellent in 2008 and 2009 and we had our first harvests of azuki bean and nigauri (goya) in 2009, this being a very succesful year. In 2012 we started growing wasabi from seed and in 2014 we expect to graft or bud a further 50 nashi pears and will add tsuruna to the veg box selection.
