Welcome to Lieksa, Isäntärenki

Isäntärenki is a traditional working farm in Vuonisjärvi, situated twenty kilometres south of Lieksa, a city in eastern Finland and about 100 km north of Joensuu. You can find our location on the map here.

We offer tasty home-made meals and coffee services for groups. Our specialities are organic home-raised lamb dishes and traditional Finnish sour rye country bread made from scratch. All are prepared with ingredients produced on our own farm or the local area. We are focused on organic sheep ranching and organic grain farming.

Isäntärenki also offers stylish art handicrafts. The handicrafts are created by the Lady of the house, Marjatta Lampen-Kuivalainen, who besides being a fantastic cook and hostess, is a professional artisan. Marjatta uses wool and linen as materials for her works. There is a sales exhibition of art handicrafts in the old granary.

On our farm we have a collection of farm machinery from the old days. The collection is found in our authentic Home Museum which earlier served as a sheep shed.
