We are a young couple living on an apple orchid, with our 5-y old son, 2 dogs and 2 Arabian horses. Occasionally we can host volunteers to help with apple orchid tasks, stable work and gardening. The farm is located by the sea, about 180 km west of Helsinki.

Projects involving children
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
If you stay with us you will help out with tasks at the farm, which vary along the year. At the apple orchid we in the spring cut branches and support trees and in the autumn we pick apples. The horses need some care every day. When there are no urgent work at the farm we might do something in the garden around the house.
Normally: 3 small guest rooms at our family´s house, shared bathroom for these rooms.
What else ...
The location itself offers calm landscape, hiking in the forests and rowing a small boat.
The area is beautiful and there are many interesting sites to visit. Notice that this is a true rural area. The local grocery store and bus stop is 1,5 km away, from where buses depart to the nearby villages and the cities Turku, Salo and Helsinki, but only a few times a day.
