Our business is a small home-based husky farm. Our dogs are friendly
with a variety of personalities.

We constantly train dogs for the winter. The training consists of
running dog teams with cart or ATV mostly every day in the warmer
months. In preparation for winter, we build more kennels for the dogs
and chop firewood.

Volunteers share a bedroom and share the rest of the house with the
host. Internet access is available in the evenings. Volunteers join in
kitchen and housework. Hours are divided through the day, and it's
physically hard, but very rewarding.

During winter 2017-2018 we will work at two different places. At home
in Suomussalmi, and in Kuusamo, where we will be organizing husky
safaris.

In the middle of November I will move to Kuusamo with most of the
dogs, and another guide comes to Suomussalmi.

In Suomussalmi our farm is located in a remote place in the forest
surrounded by swamps. There are good options for hiking, spending time
in nature... more inside

We run an internship program for people interested in working with huskies in a semi-professional capacity. In other words, we don't just take people as volunteers and expect them to poop. Rather, we have a systematic training system in place which is an extension of the system in place for paying clients who want to participate in the husky lifestyle for short periods of time.

Interns learn about and participate in the daily and weekly tasks that need to be completed on the farm. The first week is a bit of a baptism of fire guided by a daily mentor in which there is complete immersion into every aspect of life here.

The degree to which people can participate in the range of roles available on the farm depends on the length of their stay, their expertise coming in, and the level of interest in the various roles.

Duties change with the seasons from one-on-one dog training and construction / maintenance work in the summer, to dog-conditioning and safari preparation work in... more inside

LOOKING FOR HELP NOW (STARTING AS OF AUGUST 6)

I have a small farm in a beautiful location right next to a lake in Central Finland. When I was a child, we had dairy cows, then beef cattle. When the animals had to go, we continued growing oats and barley for many years. When my dad died, I rented out most of the fields but kept three hectares to myself so I could still be a farmer of some sort. I planted Phacelia, which is a good nectar plant, and got some honey bees. Then I went to a beekeeping school and got my beekeeper’s diploma. Currently I have about ten beehives.

Accordingly, you’ll have to feel more or less comfortable with thousands of bees buzzing around your head if you decide this is your thing. But not to worry, I will provide you with a full bee suit and gloves. If you want to learn beekeeping, I can teach you.

The work depends very much on weather. There are no fixed working hours or days off. When something needs to get done with the bees, it gets done, be i... more inside

Hello!



Not available for hosting summer 2017 anymore.




We live in a small farm-like house in South Karelia. This is home for two adults and one dog.

My small business is to produce berry, wild herb and wild mushroom and I am looking for helpers to learn and participate picking up and processing herbs etc. I am also growing up veggies and my green garden needs attention on regular basis. I also do catering sometimes.

Other jobs at our farm are e.g. making firewood, garden, lawn moving, painting, handy crafts etc. Depending on weather we choose the suitable job for the day.

The season for wild herbs has started :) Already there are some herbs and salads available and more is growing all the time. Help is needed to pick up all the good stuff growing so fast :)

Our farm is not officially organic, we produce part of our food here and we don't use pesticides.

There are few places to dip in to refreshing lake close by, unfortunately not walking distance... more inside

Hi, I live in Savitaipale, which is a small town located in south-eastern Finland by a lake (appr. 2,5 hrs from Helsinki).

If you want to get familiar with Finnish people, nature, language, way of life, cats and dogs, heating up the sauna, chopping firewood, mowing lawn, and lend a hand in various household and garden chores, you are more than welcome to experience all this! :)

What you will get is a peaceful accommodation in beautiful surroundings in a small cabin with all necessary things (electricity, water, etc.). My house is situated about 3,5 kilometres from the town centre. It takes only 10 minutes by bike.
Special diet, like gluten or lactose-free, is no problem.
In your free time you can hang out with young people in the neighbourhood, do all kinds of sports, like frisbee golf, tennis, or badminton (to name just a few), and dance in a traditional outdoor dancing place with live music :)
Best time for your arrival would be August! :)

I look forward to hearing fr... more inside
