Korteniemi Heritage Farm

Korteniemi Heritage Farm

Korteniementie 270, 31350 Liesjärvi
+358 (0)20 639 5270

Visitors of Korteniemi will learn about everyday life at a forest ranger's estate in the 1910s. The area's cultural landscape is maintained at the farm through traditional farming methods. 

The grounds, including the buildings etc. crops of the former forest ranger estate, have remained almost unchanged. It's been like this for over hundred years. During summer, life on the estate is very much like it was in the 1910s.

During summer the farm is also a home to indigenous Finnish farm animals: horse, cows, sheep, chickens, and a rooster. Old, traditional, Finnish crops are farmed in both the estates gardens and fields by traditional methods. Rye is cut with scythes, dried on racks and threshed with flails in the drying barn.

The purpose of this heritage farm is to preserve the cultural landscape. It is keeping the old buildings and cultural heritage save.
