The farm relief service aims to secure uninterrupted services of agricultural businesses during farm owners’ annual leaves and substitution periods. It also secures the activities of fur farmers during their annual leaves.
The local Toholampi unit organizes farm relief services in Toholampi and Lestijärvi municipalities, the city of Kannus, and in the Kälviä, Lohtaja and Ullava areas, which are part of Kokkola city.
The Toholampi farm relief service area consists of 270 farms (490 farmers) and 14 fur farms. There are 80 to 90 permanent and long-term workers among the Toholampi local unit’s network.
