The Art Farm offers memorable art and nature experiences to people of the modern age. The key to a good experience is ease and simplicity – the feeling of not needing to be anywhere after the sauna, the smell of the wheat fields on a summer night, or the natural artwork of a noiseless star filled sky.
Relaxing traditional sauna
In our traditional sauna you can allow the warmth to soak in surrounded by the wonderful smell of the nearby birch trees. The experience includes a guide to warming the sauna, making birch “vasta,” and of course a cold drink to go with the hot sauna.

”At the beginning of the 1900’s the fields were planted using a horse drawn seed drill. As the operator couldn’t stand on the machine, they would have to walk alongside, sometimes up to 30km in a day. The Aijasaho Farm bought its first tractor in 1947, and it was the first tractor in the village.

”The Aijasaho Farm has been in Aapo’s family for 4 generations. Aapo’s great-grandfather Tobias bought the farm in the 1900s and married Aino – Aapo’s great-grandmother. Aino lost her husband very young in a car accident. Their son Antti, who should have taken over the farm, tragically fell during the war. Which left Aino alone to take care of the large farm. Through the war in the male dominated countryside, Aino held her own and was strong and hard.

”Music has always been played in the main building of the farm, Annikki – Aapo’s grandmother – was a lover of music and taught the family to play. Some of the music Eveliina plays in the private concerts is from Annikki’s old notes. Eveliina is a professional musician and has done her conducting studies around Europe. Eveliina has performed in many places and times, and because of that our concerts personal and interactive for the listeners. A joint musical art moment involving an accordion was what brought Aapo and Eveliina together in the first place!
Music lessons in the Art Home
Music lessons are a great way to start playing music as a hobby. One lesson is 45 minutes long and the instrument may be piano, guitar, or violin. Music lessons suit everyone, no matter what age they are, and the student can always take home clear instructions so they can develop themselves more.
