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

Hello! We are a thirty-year-old married couple whose firstborn son was born last year in September. We have been entrepreneurs in our dairy farm for just over a year (34 cows, calves, and young cattle, so a little over 60 head to feed everyday) which offers us a living. Before Mikko`s parents retired and we started to hold this farm, we studied (for example, tourism and catering, natural resources and construction), were in paid employment and traveled. We also have 2 dogs and 3 cats, who live inside with us.

Our farm is located in Eastern Finland a small village called Tohmajärvi (fewer than 5000 people) not far from the Russian border. The closest shops are seventeen kilometers away, while Joensuu, the closest bigger city, is 72 km away (nearest airport), the nearest train station is at Kitee about 30 km away. There isn`t really public transportation, but we will take you to places every now and then, if needed.

Here, we spend the days quickly in the work of the far... more inside

We are a Finnish family living with the renovation project of an old school building. Our family is Antti and Antje, and the children Touko 13, Louna 10, Loviisa 8 and Akseli 6 years old.

Our house is close to the biggest lake of Finland, Saimaa (100m walk) and surrounded by forest. The next bigger city Lappeenranta is around 25km away and the nearest shop about 8km. In the free time you can enjoy the lake-side nature: swim, paddle, row, hike or bike.

The help we would need is to make fire wood, gardening, warm up the house, playing with the children etc. We always have some renovation job as well. If you are an artist or a craftsman, you would be interested to work in the forge or in the metal art workshop.

To join this project, please, write to us and ask for more information!

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.

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
