QVIDJA FARM, PARAINEN
The Qvidja pilot farm, located in Parainen by the Baltic Sea in southwest Finland, has a long history. A medieval grey stone castle stands in the courtyard, and the farm’s land has been cultivated for over a thousand years. Nowadays, the farm is experimenting and researching nutrient recycling, environmentally friendly, and carbon-sequestering agriculture that does not burden the Baltic Sea with nutrient leaching. Among other things, the fields are being used for intensive Carbon Action research.
