About

We have a farm size of about a hectare by the lake Kemijärvi exactly on the Polar circle. The distance from here to Rovaniemi is 90 km and to the city of Kemijärvi is 30 km. At Kemijärvi we have railway station which is also the final destination for the train traffic.
Earlier times we had sheep, a dog and two cats. But now we have only a dog called Poncho (beagle). We grow naturally potatoes, carrots, onions, flowers, salads and so on. We have a compost. We don't use artificial substances. On our farm is growing many, many willows. Our yard in front of the house is large and we have to cut grass one or two times in a week.
In autumn we are gathering mushrooms and berries in the forest nearby.
And we have a boat and we are fishing very often during summertime. In the winter we fish on the ice making holes. We eat fish almost every day or week.
We have three saunas. One inside of our home, one by the lake, also one at our cottage (6 km from here).
We have three sons, all of them are studying in the universities in southern Finland.
I am 65 years old and now I am retired. I have worked 28 years as a secretary of deaf-blinds in Lapland. My wife (59 years) is working as social worker in eastern Lapland commune of Salla. Her cardriving from here to Salla is 100 km.

The working prospects in our farm include making wood for saunas and the oven, picking berries, taking care of the garden and our dog, Poncho. And in the winter we have snowworking ( to move snow away from our yard), cleaning our home and helping foodcooking. The length of the work day is some 5 hours.
