Dairy farming in Aomori began in the early Meiji period (1868~1912) with market milk production. In the Showa period (1926~1989), the Dairy Cattle Improvement Association was established in the village currently known as Shingo, leading the way for furthering the farming industry in the Kennan region. Pre and post-war development allowed for the designation of the dairy industry area in the Shimokita and North Kamikita region, which has persisted to the present day.
“Aoi Mori no Gyunyu” (roughly translated as the Blue Forest Milk) is an Aomori-exclusive fresh milk produced only in the Terugaoka area of the dairy town of Tohoku.
The safe, trustworthy fresh milk from Aomori is a product of the clean cool air and water, as well as the farmers passion in raising healthy cattle as demonstrated by their care, starting with soil management. 90% of the 60,000 tons of fresh milk produced annually in Aomori is distributed across the country and processed in plants in the Kanto and Tohoku regions.
The remaining 10% is distributed within the prefecture for the general public and school lunches or made into products such as yogurt.
