Torstila has been our family's home since 2017. That's when we decided to "up-shift" and left behind the city lights and dusts of Helsinki. Since then we have gotten into the fascinating world of organic farming, slowly renovated historical buildings on the farm and explored the lakes and forests around. Every day we are amazed by the beauty that surrounds us, and it is that amazement that drives us to farm in a sustainable way, preserving the land and the waters, and that on the other hand makes us want to share this uniqueness with travelers, visitors and friends.
