FINLAND Story of Järki Särki
It was 1980 when Marja and Ari studied at the University of Helsinki. Ari studied fisheries and Marja studied plant cultivation and horticulture. When they finished their studies, they decided to move to country. They bought a farm in central Finland. And so they became organic farmers. Their main concern was the care of bees and honey. They developed their own brand Voi hyvin- organic honey.
In winter 2013 there was plenty of ice on the lake and catch of the fish was very good. So roach fish was canned and cooked in glass jar in a home oven. Canned roach fish was distributed to friends and relatives. They began to wonder why such good fish could not be bought in a store. The shops in the area where they lived only sold Norwegian salmon, even thought the area was located by the huge Päijänne lake.
An ecological lifestyle is the basis of an organic farm. Komppa-Seppälä organic farm has it´s own solar power plat and uses renewable energy. Utilizing roach fish makes sense both in terms of human health and the well-being of waterways. Fisherman in the area make a living from the fish catches and the countryside maintains it´s vitality.
