Markkulan Marjatila is a centuries-old farm that started to cultivate black currants and strawberries in the 1990s, as well as to produce different berry products from them. Markkula’s guiding lights include healthiness, excellent flavour and high quality. The aim is to preserve the berries’ beneficial vitamins and other ingredients with health impacts as well as the summery flavours with all their aromas.
Markkula berry farm is a family farm. It invests in the continuity and vitality of Finnish agriculture, without forgetting traditions and the work of past generations. The buildings and milieu of the courtyard area have been faithfully preserved and renovated. Old items have been collected in a home museum.
The planting history of the courtyard trees tells us about former and present house masters and mistresses, important moments in their lives and episodes of the farm’s existence.

“We came back to our dear Villa Kantri. For two weeks we’ve been enjoying the peace and the beauty of nature. Caught pikes and roaches. Comfort at the highest level. The hosts have thought of everything, to the tiniest detail. We will definitely come back. Greetings from Moscow.”
