Frantsila Organic Herb Farm and Centre for Well-being
Frantsila Organic Herb Farm is a pioneer of organic herbal growing and natural product manufacturer in the Nordic countries. It is situated in the heritage landscape of Hämeenkyrö, and has belonged to the same family for at least 300 years. The guiding principles of the farm can be summed up as "natural holistic care of the person and respect for nature". Its Centre for Well-being, aiming at giving the visitors renewed energy to cope with the pressures in their lives and an opportunity to pause and relax, is located at the heart of the organic farm surrounded by verdant countryside.
Frantsila Farm is an ideal place to stay around the year in traditional wooden buildings (in rooms for 2-5 persons, with old traditional furniture, wallpapers and tiled stoves). In the summer, there is additional accommodation in the outbuildings and also camping is possible. Frantsila is a great setting for naturopathic treatment breaks or weekend courses. The courses focus on such themes as yoga, naturopathic treatments, vegetarian diet, herbal medicines, positive resources and acupressure. The herb shop "Taikapalsami" sells 200 different herbal products.
For pre-booked groups there are meeting facilities, lectures, various treatments, and the chance of some extra-special pampering in a herbal or peat sauna. There are mainly organic vegetarian buffets. Accommodation is available in even for groups of 30+ people. In addition to herbal products, the vegetarian restaurant Kehäkukka ("Marigold", on road 3 at 4 km distance) offers displays of local crafts, and the visitors can walk around a garden of cooking and medicinal herbs. Nature walks and cultural heritage trips to the Museum Cottage of Koskela (30 km) can also be organised. There is also a 3,5 km long special herbal path in the surroundings of Frantsila.
