We are a family living on an organic farm in Juva, Finland. Our family consists of mom Alexandra, 31, dad Frans, 34, and our two children Saga, 3, and Oliver, 1. 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 in the house
We are a bilingual family and speak both finnish and swedish at home. Our house is surrounded by beautiful nature and there are for example good hiking and paddling routes nearby.
For the summer of 2020 we are especially looking for someone to cook for us and help around the house; cleaning, laundry etc. During the summer we will have a trainee and various volunteers so there are a lot of mouths to feed and cooking isn´t the task we are most passionate about :D
Since we have a farm there are always a lot of work and volunteers will be helping with different tasks outside as well.
finnish, swedish, english
We can offer accommodation in our guest room inside the house. If you prefer more privacy and being close to nature our small log cabin in the wood beside the house is also free to use. The cabin has electricity but no running water and there is a dry toilet close by. We have wifi inside the main house.
We eat mostly vegetarian food but every now and then also fish and meat. Vegan food is however no problem.
On your time off you can enjoy the nature, maby go fishing on the lake, take a swim or even heat the sauna by the lake to enjoy some Finnish culture. You can also borrow our car to explore the surroundings.
