Explore the farm museum in the old drying barn

Our old drying barn has dried huge amounts of grain and a large number of traditional farm tools have been collected inside. Later, there have held children's camp events with a local congregation. Now you can stop and feel the old-fashioned atmosphere. The space is also suitable for small celebrations in unique environment.
