What’s your story?
Samppa and I are both originally from the city. We wanted to move to the countryside and found the perfect spot in 2010 here in Petäjävesi. We took in three sheep for the first summer, a summer that was mostly spent chasing them around, but we were hooked.
We then started to build our farm into a travel business. Our first lambs came in 2012, and in 2016, we started our Day at the Farm tours. It took us until 2019 to open our customer facilities.
