    Description

    Welcome to our dairy farm! We've got 40 cows to milk, cats, dogs, rabbits and chickens to pet. Farm is surrounded with typical Finnish country side where you can enjoy the peace and quiet, fish or pick berries.

    There's one hour drive to the city of Jyväskylä. Me and my husband, we both work on the farm, we've got three kids and also the grandparents live on the same house. We are ordinary family, like to stay at home and in the nature.

    Help

    We need help with farming, caring for animals, cleaning animal shelters, making fences, taking dogs for walks, gardening, cooking, cleaning and babysitting. Also farm web-pages would be great if somebody knew how to make them. You don't have to do all these, only the things you know how to or want to learn.

    We would like you to help 4-5 hours a day five days a week, no early wake ups if they don't suit you. The lady of the house is familiar with traditional Finnish textile crafts and picking herbs and dying plants if such activity interest someone.
