The story focuses on shorts episodic anecdotes of the author's childhood and early adulthood in a farmer's family in Hokkaido, an islandic region of Japan situated north. The drawing style is very simple and thus fit well with the humoristic and daily-life feeling of the manga, and all characters are expressive and recognisable. Every chapter is centered around Hiromu Arakawa and her family, drawn as cows, and their daily life as she narrates to her editor Miss Ishii, who is often bewildered by their antics. The humor of the story lies on the differences between the lifes of farmers and townfolks, often about how hard
is the work in the farm and how they get to eat luxury fruits and vegetables for free. Many aspects of countryside life are depicted without getting boring, each in their own funny ways. With that many informations, the reader will also learn a lot about farming techniques and japan-specific traditions.
