  • Help


    We need help with farming, caring for animals, cleaning animal shelters, making fences, taking dogs for walks, gardening, cooking, cleaning and babysitting. Also farm web-pages would be great if somebody knew how to make them. You don't have to do all these, only the things you know how to or want to learn.

    We would like you to help 4-5 hours a day five days a week, no early wake ups if they don't suit you. The lady of the house is familiar with traditional Finnish textile crafts and picking herbs and dying plants if such activity interest someone.
