How about making a little trip to a lovely willow farm located about 18 km from Tampere?
Marjamäen pajutila is a willow farm located about 18 km from the city centre of Tampere in the municipality of Kangasala. The willow farm is located in the coutryside on an old family estate and it is open every day from 12 to 18 o'clock; address: Hanuri-Topin tie 35, Kangasala.
The lovely farm includes a shop & outdoor sales booths, a café, some small farm animals and willow plantations. There are a lot of home decorating ideas and many amazing things made of willow to see (e.g. animals like elephants & a giraff made of willow).
The easiest way to reach this farm is probably by car or by bike. The farm is located about 18 km from the city centre of Tampere and if you happen to live in the district of Hervanta, Lukonmäki or Kaukajärvi in Tampere, then this farm is located about 10-12 km from these districts. The farm is located about 5 km from the centre of Kangasala.
