The farm landscape

The farming landscape in Närpes is flat. This results from the ice age and the land uplift, which is very noticeable here. Wide open landscapes and vast fields as far as the eye can see are a reality here. The greenhouses that are well known in Närpes are also a part of the farming landscape. Tomatoes, cucumbers and other vegetables are grown year around, regardless of the cold and dark. Dotted throughout the landscape are the well tended farmhouses, painted in the characteristic red with white awnings. Those who want to get closer acquainted with the old farms can visit one of Närpes’ local history museums. Don’t hesitate to contact the tourist information for suggestions of places worth seeing in the region.
