  • Description

    Description

    We have an organic farm specialized in growing cereals and peas on 89 hectares. We are very interested in regenerative farming and soil health and we try our best to implement these methods on our farm. We have a vegetable garden as well. In July we are also opening up our farm for visitors by having a summer cafe in a cottage that hosted Russian prisoners in world war ll. The cafe is very small, less than six chairs but it is mentioned because it brings people interested in organic farming to our farm and you have to be open for meeting new people and maybe showing them around. The cafe is open only in July.
    Our farm has been in the family for seven generations so the farm is also my childhood home.
    We have a thirteen year old son and three adult sons so we are in our fifties. If you like to play football you will have a friend here😊. If you do any kind of music please tell us, we like live music at our cafe in July.
    My husband is running a business, so he is not working full-time on the farm.

  • Help

    Help

    We expect volunteers to help us for about five hours a day. From May- August it´s mostly gardening. We are growing vegetables mainly for our own use but also for the local Reko market. There can also be other kinds of help, for example making firewood or painting/renovating buildings on the farm. Since the machines and tractors on our farm requires drivers license we do not expect you to help us with the field work.

    What else ...

    We live one hour west of Helsinki and 20 minutes (by car) from the nearest small town. A grocery store is 2 km away. We have bikes that you can borrow, but really, this is a quiet and peaceful place with not so many happenings and attractions.
