Meal in Laine family includes f. ex. mushroom soup, blueberry pie and local berries. We go berry picking, mushrooming or fishing in nearby nature depending on season and weather. You will hear some stories about Finnish nature. We will enjoy picnic lunch including salad and a roll with coffee or tea in the forest or by the lake. In our garden you will find many useful plants such as hazel nutbushes, apple trees, berry bushes, salads, tomatoes, strawberries, even plants that attract butterflies. During harvest season we can pick fruits, berries and salad straight from our garden. We will prepare mushroom soup and blueberry pie together in our kitchen.
