The farm is surrounded by the beautiful nature of Lapland, stunning ski slopes as well as cross-country skiing trails, snowshoeing trails and fine hiking trails in the summer as well as waterways for canoeing.

This is my home farm, I grew up here, and I'm only just starting. The farm has been out of use for almost 10 years, so all the land is free of synthetic fertilizers, but everything needs to be started, fixed or constructed. I have goats at the moment, but as things progress, I will get more animals. The living quarters are in good shape, and there's plenty of room. I've hosted backpackers via another site last winter, and everyone seem to have enjoyed. This place is in the middle of Lapland, with accordingly short (and hectic) summers. But plenty of wilderness around.

Continued 20.9.2015: Three years in, projects are evolving, new ones arrive. Oiva, my retired father lives here.
Still taking in volunteers and with good experience of them. This has been a working system. The farm is already producing vegetables, eggs, goat milk, meat, etc. but we also gather lots of food straight from the nature, hunt and fish, so we can offer a very local diet for the volunteers. In addition t... 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!

A small community in Southern Finland welcomes helpers and helpful travelers.

For summer 2019 our projects include gardening, forest husbandry & woodworking and fixing current structures. It is my dream to create some land art or recycled art in the summer, but we'll see. Most garden work is around May-June (planting) and August-September (harvesting). Forests work can be done all year round, but isn't much fun when it is minus temperature outside.

We are at the moment 4 adults, 2-3 kids, a dog and some cats. Words and ideas like permaculture gardening, recycling, arts & crafts, sharing economy, sustainability, LGBT+ rights, anti-discrimination, critical thinking etc perhaps tell you a bit of what we are. Also fixing motorcycles and engines, reading science fiction and watching horror movies :D.
We wish our helpers to be openminded, tolerant, co-operative, active and able to do stuff independently if needed. We can offer only rather modest housing and very modest vegetarian... more inside
