  • Description

    Description

    I own a farm, farm-to-the-table-restaurant, B&B, cider brewery in the Finnish archipelago. Farm is not yet 100% organic but is aiming to become one in the NeXT 2 years.
    The nature around us is that of incredible natural beauty, both winter and summer seasons! We have several boats and a quad you can borrow to explore the sea, its islands and the beautiful nature around. Fishing here is also fantastic! Artists live the uniqueness and the picturesqueness of this corner of the world.

    The next project for the spring will be building 5km of new fencing for our livestock! The work is hard, but rewarding. The help with animals is ongoing daily and takes around 3h daily.

    We are completely renovating the main farm building and building a new barn for our goats, quails, chickens and ducks. Setting up fencing for new meadows. We are planting new apple and pear orchards. We are expanding our berry farming.

    Help caring for the animals, rabbits, chickens, quails, milking goats, sheep and ducks. We have 4 high energy working dogs.

    What else ...

    Nearest two culture rich cities are Turku and Uusikaupunki, both 1h away. Local islands have sights including coastal fortresses, lighthouses, bird and seal watching towers and tours. Islands truly are a paradise for nature lovers!

    Can possibly accept pets

    Yes, as long as they don't harm our livestock. We have working dogs, which are used for hunting, working with the goats and who guard the farm house and livestock. For this reason, hosting other dogs will be difficult and will depend on gender and breed.
