Be Different!


This is a pic from our farm in Richland, NY.
One of the chickens lays eggs like the white one in the middle.
It’s actually a small chicken.
Being different means you are special! Don’t be afraid to be a different one even if you are a little CHICKEN!!19702318_10155539960993417_1951572938151002312_nMattison Farm Stay starts on 7/16.

Mattison Farm Stay 2017




Preparations are ongoing at Mattison Farms.
We visited Mattison Farms this weekend to finalize our program.

Everything is  in place.
We’re all excited about this program.
We can’t wait to have our students there!

Let summer begin!!

New Start!


Spring 2013

4 years have passed since I moved back to NY in 2013.

Starting Mattison English in NY from scratch after closing it in Japan was no easy task.
But like this pic right before we left Japan, my lifetime partner Mio and I  both kept our chins WAY up high.

Thanks to everyone for all your support.
4 years after moving back to the US, we’re here today with over 100 students in Harrison, NY + Skype students in Japan.

We have a great summer Farm Stay 2017 going this year, and we’re just thrilled to be working with Mattland Farm and Mattison Corner Farms on that project.

As I was doing in this picture, looking up at the beautiful cherry blossoms as my witness, I promise to do my best for all of our students and family.
Without any of you we would be nothing.

Thanks everyone!

“I sometimes go fishing with my dad. That’s how I got the idea.”
Our kids are so cool!
