Hello!

I live in Uusi-värtsilä, a village in Tohmajärvi, North-Karelia, close to the Russian border. Here can be found forests, bogs, remains of stone-age villages, spring water lakes, rivers, wild animals, clean air and interesting people. Perfect!

I'm a masseur / woodartisan. I live in a house that previously housed several families that all worked in the nerby village foundry. The foundry was run down in the 60:s and the village died. Now this is a quiet place with many empty houses around.
I'm now restoring the house since it had been empty for years and was in relly bad shape, so with the garden. We built two dome greenhouses in the garden, this year we are building a third in the summer. This Summer there is a nearby field that is going to be used for plantig a variety of edibles.

The main project for the coming Summer is to finish off the cladding of the exterior what Andy started last Summer.

Hi there!

We are a young Finnish family living on a historical farm in the Eastern Finland close to Russian border. We are looking for handy helpers to help out with various kinds of tasks on our land.

We run a business in tourism, forestry and agriculture on our farm. We have lakeside cabins that can be rented for spending a holiday and a smoke sauna area for arranging functions in a unique setting. At the moment we are concentrating on ecological tourism at our lakeside area and we want to offer our guests authentic experiences with the minimal effect on the nature.

We have two cats that live in the house with us, but we don't have any other animals of our own. However, in the summertime we have some sheep that we look after. Around our house we have big gardens with apple trees, plum trees, berries and in the summer we grow some vegetables. The fruit, berries and vegetables we preserve for the winter.
Our land is right next to a lake and our home is surrounded by field... more inside

We are Marja (finnish sign language interpreter, homemom, from Finland) and Mick (carpenter, from Ireland) and we have two small kids Leo (born 2014) and Luna (born 2016). We live in the countryside in North Karelia 20 km from Joensuu center.

Our project is to build a small straw bale round house to be our home. We have decided to settle down in Finland and after a few years of thinking we decided to build our own home instead of buying an old house. After that decision was made we bought 5 hectares of land in December 2016. We bought it very close (500m) from where we live now and also close to an organic farm Pikkunuppu where Marja has grown up.

We have now cleared the road to the house, gotten building permission and had the trees cut to boards for the house. After we got the building permission we cleared the building plot from trees and we did a natural stone foundation. The foundation of the house is ready as is the foundation for the chimney. In year 2018 we completed... more inside

Hello !

--- update may 11: summer season is about to begin and we are willing to take helpers to visit Kokemäki. Sorry about delay with the responses, but we will answer to everyone as soon as possible. Quickest way to contact is to call or send text message. ---


I am running a retro-style small hotel/b&b in Kokemäki. Kokemäki is a municipality of almost 8000 inhabitants, situated in the province of Satakunta in southwestern Finland.

We also run a summer cafe in July with our family in an old house called Lääkäri. The Lääkäri house is a unique interior with the original 1930's decor. Traditional finnish old farmhouse with a sauna by the pond. The Finnish movie "Postia pappi Jaaakobille" was filmed in that house.
(movie trailer:http://fi.filmtrailer.com/cinema/1720/postia-pappi-jaakobille.

I welcome English speaking international helpers. I used to work in cruise ships and on those days I travelled for example around the USA. I've lived in New Zealand for four years... more inside
