What's Currently Happening in the Välimaa Sámi Farm

In summer 2015
Metsähallitus Parks & Wildlife Finland restored the buildings on Välimaa Farm and cleared the surrounding area, repairing the structures that were in poorest condition. Metsähallitus also mapped the flora of the farmyard and will use the information collected as the basis for a management plan of the site.

The electrical installations on the farm were modernised in autumn 2015. A basic temperature is maintained in the restored main house to keep the roof and base floor structures in good condition.

Year 2016
Work will continue in summer 2016 with mowing, clearing of the thicket by the river and fencing in the farm.

Year 2017
In summer repairing work continued with the fence. There were also sheeps to taken care of
