An historic year! We had animals on the farm for the first time in over 60 years. This time Olli, Miina and Elviira spent the summer with us - taking care of the grass in the pasture behind the old cowhouse. The sheep returned to their home in Lohja in mid-August. We're planning to have more sheep next summer.
