Hello, we are Heikki and Merja Nykänen, the owners of Lahdenpohja Holidays and Lahdenpohja Farm. We have raised three wonderful children at our place in the beautiful Finnish countryside. The farm has been in the Nykänen family since 1722 so we represent the ninth generation of the same family living in this estate. We respect the work of our ancestors and keep on developing our farm in a modern way. As the nature means everything to us, we naturally take environmental aspects into consideration in all our operation.
Lahdenpohja Farm is a dairy farm, producing quality milk to Valio, the top Finnish dairy company. The nutrition of our cows is based on grass silage and grass and they get the protein they need from oilseed rape or turnip rape, not from soy. Healthy cows, excellent feeding and good hygiene help us to produce the best milk in the world - every day year round. When staying at our cottages you can visit our farm, see our curious cows – as well as our friendly pets - and discuss the farming with us.
