  • Description

    Description

    We have a small family farm in the Lahemaa National Park in the northern part of Estonia. Our farm is old and young at the same time - there has been a farm here for centuries, but our family came here only a few years ago.
    We raise sheep and goats for fiber that we process ourselves, we also have chickens. We have veggie garden, fruit trees, lots of berry bushes and we seasonally forage forest berries and mushsrooms.
    Other activities involve farm tours and nature tours around the area. We occasionally participate in fairs and markets.
    Our farm is constantly changing as we have more ideas than workpower to implement. One day we hope our farm will be self-sufficient so we don't need to work outside home anymore.

    We are located in the middle of Estonia's largest and oldest national park Lahemaa. Nature here has something for everyone!
    We are happy to share local traditions, food and cultural related. Also we can suggest some sightseeing places that are many times better than in any brochure.

    Help

    We mostly need help with different farm works - tending to animals and pastures in the summer, gardening depending on the season. On the other hand we are happy to welcome someone with construction experience to help us with rebuilding and renovating our farm's buildings.
