  • Description

    Description

    We’re a couple (Georg 31 & Jannica 30) living in South Coast of Finland. This small area is called Herrala, it’s in village of Sipoo. We live in a countryhouse and we have a small farm with some hobby animals. We are interested ecological farming, this season will be our second season we are goint to grow organic products.

    We favor ecological food, grow own vegetables and eat own chicken/duck eggs. We are also interested about self-sufficiency, herbal medicine, wild food and we'll learn more about things like these. We are taking a small steps towards to be more self-contained.

    We have had just several workawayers, but the experinces with them has been wonderful! We think that sharing daily life and doing things together are the salt of life!

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    In our main house we have wifi. Also the surrounding area is great to do outside activities, the nature is close. We’re also living near a lake and the sea, so it’s possible to join us on the boat to take a trip to the sea. We have a car so it’s easy to grocery store or somewhere else, also we don’t mind if you want to do something around the farm on your own.

    Distance from our place to the small centre of Nikkilä is 3km. There is grocery store, cafe, library, hairdresser and so on.
    You can borrow a bike from us if you want to take a small bicyckle excursion to our village.
