  • Description

    Description

    We are a family living on an organic farm in Juva, Finland. Our family consists of Alexandra, 33, Frans, 35, and our two children Saga, 5, and Oliver, 3. Our farm is situated in the beautiful Finnish lake district and a workaway-stay at our place could be perfect for someone who enjoys the silence of nature or just wants to get away from the big city life for a while. On our farm we grow organic vegetables, mostly garlic, onion and potato and we have also eastern finncattle; a small traditional cattle that has been close to extinction. In addition to the products we sell we also have lots of berries and apples for our own use.

  • Help

    Help

    On our farm you will be able to help with many different tasks. During the busy summer months we always need someone to cook for us and help around the house; cleaning, laundry etc. During the summer we often have trainees and various volunteers so there are a lot of mouths to feed and cooking isn´t the task we are the most passionate about :D
    There is also a lot of work outside; planting, weeding and harvesting in the vegetable field, building fences for the animals, general maintainance etc.
