Hepokatti, with its lively barnyard and cosy café, is just the place to make a leisurely day trip. You may even find yourself getting involved in neo-traditional farm work with the looney Hepokatti family.
The Hepokatti barnyard is home to many traditional Finnish farm animals. Vertti, the pony, has probably lived at Hepokatti the longest (since 1997). Then comes the horse, Suliver and two cats, Isabella and Sebastian. Nappi the sheep is also a senior member of the Hepokatti gang.
Check out the barnyard summer activities at our website.
The annual fee to enjoy all the activities at the barnyard is 10 €/family or 5 €/per person.
Barnyard and café open daily 8:00 – 20:00 (June, July and August) and Sat. & Sun. 11:00 – 16:00 (May and September)
