Many generations of the family have been living here before us and each generation has left its mark in the history of the farm.
In the 90's my parents became aware of the possibilities that the beautiful setting and the excellent location close to main roads had. The tourism started to supplement the farming livelihood. My dad renovated traditional farm buildings for their new usage serving as accommodation for guests looking for the unique experience of the old days. As a skilled builder my dad also constructed new log cottages for accommodation. He also planned and built the large lakeside cottage Loma-Pälsilä, which had to be done by lifting one log at a time. Close to the Poikkijärvi lake was built a hut for guests to enjoy open fire and barbeque. Visiting guests had the chance to bath in the traditional lakeside sauna and dip in the water in between.
I spent my childhood here surrounded by pets and happiness. My roots grew deep in this ground. University studies and jobs took me to cities and abroad but I always knew that one day I would return. Now the farm has shifted to the next generation of the family and it is my time to continue the story with the same enthusiasm, perseverance and energy as already for the last two centuries. We honour the old and get inspired by the new. Respect to the environment and sustainable way of living is the guiding star of our life.
