The landscape is typical for Central Finland: woods, lakes and cliffs, streams, small forest ponds… In the nearby Leivonmäki National Park you can admire typical marsh scenery and sandy ridges.

The farm was founded in 1950 when farmland was distributed for war veterans and it was named after its founder, Kauko Nieminen. Earlier, milk was produced at the farm. The current main livelihood – cottage renting – began in the 1990’s and now there are 8 cottages of different sizes for rent.
