About Pitojen Helmi - the Doer

The roots of the Pietilä farm in Liminka, Ala-Temmes, reach to the 18th century. The farm were once a Guesthouse, which served passing horsemen, offering them food and lodging. Later, the farm has also had a shop serving the villagers, which ceased operations in the 1940s. The farm has been agricultural since the beginning for more than 200 years. The current host couple is the 7th generation of the Pietilä farm. The farm has continued to operate in its current form since 1991, when farm tourism and food service activities were established on the farm. The farm utilizes nearby ingredients and local food. Our service extends from catering to family parties as well as conference and recreation days.
