Markku Yli-Kaitala, co-proprietor
Together with my family, I’m in charge of development of our travel company and farm. In a family business each of us has many diverse tasks. In my leisure time I’m active in promoting our local community and hunting club.
I take care of our marketing, communications, accounting and management of our staff. I also help with preparing the food every now and then. In my free time I spend a lot of time with our grandchildren.
I take care of the premises and the farm. Whenever we are building something, I’m involved in the planning and execution. I also work as guide on ATV trips and other programmes. After hours I dedicate myself to our kids.
The youngster of our entertaining troupe, Kapu is a black domestic cat whose territory stretches out to include the cottages. (You might see him around...). He currs a lot and is keen on bird-watching.
I work mainly as a chef and I prepare country-style food in Ketunleipä and Kipinä hut. Sometimes I work in the service team and help with cleaning the cottages. In my free time I love to play football and go dancing!
Taking care of the linen and cleaning the cottages are my main tasks. I also heat up the saunas for our guests. My hobbies are managing the local stitching club and I enjoy reading a lot.
Bookings and custumer service, invoices and other payments, marketing and communications - especially to Russia - are my speciality. I’m in charge of updating the website and sometimes I help our guests with translations. During busy times I also help with the cleaning in cottages. My free time is mostly spent with books and traveling.
