  • Description


    I'm Noora and I'm 20 years old. I live by myself on a old farm with a 100 year old house in Southern Ostrobothnia.
    I'm starting my own little "hobby farm" with two icelandic horses. I will be getting sheep and chickens at some point too so there is a lot of building and fencing that needs to be done!
    I also have two dogs that will mostly be at my house but some weeks they will stay with my parents.

  • Accommodation


    have space for 1-2 workawayers and you will be sleeping in the kitchen/livingroom during wintertime and during summer there will be a guestroom available. The guestroom does not have any heating so that's why it's not in use during winter.
    During winter my house is quite cold and drafty, so i recomend warm clothing to wear inside too!
    I hope you like cooking food and baking because i don't really enjoy spending much time in the kitchen.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    During summertime there is a huge amusement park named Powerpark nearby and a few museums too. My family has a summercottage by the ocean where we can visit too!
    During winter there aren't as many activities but you might see some northern lights and hopefully enjoy some snow!
    I live "in the middle of nowhere" so on a walking distance there is pretty much nothing, but within a 10-15min drive there is a little town with shops and other activities.
    I work quite a lot from home but also work at some farms nearby (i work 2-3h in the morning and 2-3h in the evening so i do come home in between)
