✔️ About us
My family have lived in Finland for about two and a half year and we came back to Korea about 5 years ago. Upon our arrival, we decided to live in rural areas in Korea home five years ago. My grandfather cultivated this chestnut farm, which had not been managed for more than 10 years. We think of ways to live as a farmer just for a quarter of a year, and focus on other things that we want to do in terms of keeping a sustainable rural life for the rest of the year. We aim to be helpful to the elders and children living in this area through the activity of farming. My family is composed of a husband, who studied architecture and furniture design, a wife, who studied hotel and food management, two kids, who are in secondary schools, a dog and a cat.
