  • Beschreibung


    Hej! My name is Jonna and I have a small homestead situated in beautiful countryside some 40 km from capitalcity Helsinki. My main occupation is my artesan bakery situated on the premises. I am trying to be selfsufficient with meat, eggs, vegetables, fruit and berries. I have adult children, four daughters and two sons, who have now moved away from the farm, but visit regularly.

    At the farm lives with me at the moment:
    2 dogs : The working shepherd bergerblanc suisse Vita and the plaything terriermix Picasso.
    1 cat : Taking care of mice and rats, the cosy barncat Yoda.
    1 rooster and 6 hens, probably some chicken in spring. Nameless...or working names Tuppen and höna ett, höna två etc....
    10 ewes of Finnsheep : Pilatus, Nova, Athena, Räven, Juno, Pim, Aino, Aisha, Aava, Leonida. Lambing in May/June so then a lot more .
    1 pony, Estonian breed, living at my friends place in an Icelandic horse herd some 15 minutes away.

    I have had workawayers staying now for three years in the summers and love the concept! So nice meeting all you fantastic people, here has been people from Germany, Holland, Denmark, France, Spain, Great Britain....Male and female and ages from 18- 54 :-)

    As for the work I need help with the year 2024 :

    Firstly, You would not work in the bakery business. I will be happy to teach you some baking skills though.


    1. Taking down one wall inside the mainhouse to open up more space.

    2. Renovating the guesthouse for workawayers and volunteers to live in.

    3. Renovating the windows, with care of the old patina.

    4. Painting of the main house and barn and stablebuildings.


    1. Housekeeping and taking care of cleaning the house on a everyday basis, cleaning all of the windows in the house. Need to really LIKE to do this kind of work !

    2. Help with the animals when I am at work : walking the dogs (need to be able to handle a large and energetic dog), building and mending fences for the sheep, feeding the chicken and watering both sheep and chicken on a daily basis.Moving the electric fences for the sheep according to rotational grazing system.

    3. Gardening / farming, preferably Permaculture/Regenerative thinking.

    4. If you are good with horses, train my Estonian Pony. She has a bad history from riding schools, and I am now beginning western riding thinking with her.

    If you feel some of these works would suit you, please be in contact :-) You can do all, or some, or ask if I have something else . I am quite flexible, but I like the works to be done happily and well :-)

    Everything concerning the animals will be according to your level, I never force anyone outside their comfortzone, and always with the animals best in mind.

    You will have a room of your own upstairs in the house, own toilet but shared bathroom. Meals together with me or other workawayers or on your own sometimes as I work a lot of evenings.

    My house is in our "Familyvillage" so very friendly people and environment, peaceful forest nearby, beautiful lake where we have a sauna and possibility of cayaking. Helsinki half an hour by car, bus and train connections. Many nice sites and small villages nearby.

    Love to hear from you ! Please have patience if I am not answering right away, as I have quite a lot happening.

    -For the building / renovating works it will be done low budget so you should think reusing, ecological, innovative.

    -For the farmwork, some of it hard and dirty, emptying sheepshed and chickenshed involves a lot of shit.

    - All the animals are very friendly and companiable, but you should be used to atleast dogs.

    -I am not a cleanfreak, and the house gets messy when I am in the middle of heavy work.But I appreciate if you can independently clean and cook. The people helping with building are not required to help with this, although normal hygiene is required... :-)
