We are a family of five (mum, dad and three kids (born in 2010, 2012 and 2015)) living in Eastern Finland on an old historical farm. Here we run a business in agriculture, forestry and tourism. We have rental cottages for tourists and smoke sauna area for arranging functions by a lake. At the moment we are concentrating on sustainable tourism at our lakeside area. In our gardens we grow fruit, berries and some vegetables for our own use. In the summertime we also have sheep on our fields.

Our farm is located in a small village, and the closest shops are seven kilometers away. Joensuu, the closest bigger city, is 60 km away. There isn't really public transportation, but we will take you to places every now and then, if needed. Here at our place you can do activities such as cycling, hiking, swimming in a lake or rowing a boat.

Depending on the time of the year you come, the tasks may include landscaping, gardening, babysitting, housework, building and renovating, painting, taking care of the sheep etc.

You will be living in our home with our family. Please note that we have a cat living with us in the house. We will provide all the meals and an accommodation in your own room (well, shared, if there are two or three of you) with a double bed, sofa and a private shower/toilet. We hope our helpers to be flexible in terms of working hours and tasks, and capable to work independently at times. We are happy to take a few helpers at a time, and couples are welcome, too!

Welcome to spend some time with us in the beautiful countryside of Tohmajärvi!
