Kotipelto garden story
All Kotipellon puutarha (Kotipelto Farm) products are quality vegetables of unpolluted Finnish ground. Hand picked and packed salads go through several inspections in oder to a boxful of greens to be a collection of the finest part of the crop. Salads are watered with the world´s cleanest groundwater. Kotipelto Farm has been audited by Finnish Horticultural Products Society and it has a right to call itself as a Laatutarha (Qualityfarm).
Mimis products originated when farmers Pirjo and Tapio Mönkkönen made a decision to put down the farming of cucumbers in 2009. They made a change of direction and started crowing special salads and herbs. During the years the farm has specialized as a versatile producer of cress ja eadible flowers with over 100 variety. Today it is a 2800 square meter farm with a clear vision on mind.
