Farm has a long history behind it. It has once been a dairy farm and at the beginning the farm has 8 cows. Running the farm was transferred from father to daughter, and in 1997, in connection with the expansion of the farm, the number of dairy cattle also increased from 8 to 23 cows and the breed turned into black-and-white cows, with a better breeding structure.

In 2001 log cabins were built on Hiidenniemi Farm lands, near the lake shore. Immediately next year, the marketing of cabins began for rental all year round and it still continues today. Recently, in 2017, there was also a change in the direction of production: nowadays, heifers are raised on the farm. Breeding and production are constantly being developed. 2020 the farm has transformed into a functional animal farm – petting zoo - for visitors with activities for children and adults, and for example, for companies to spend their recreation day.
