Buildings Around the World, Kings Farm, Sirkka Jalava

Here is another building in the neighbourhood. This house is old, the oldest part is from the1700 century. It is the main building to a farm," kings farm". I took the photo early in the spring. The snow is gone and no leaves yet in the trees, mostly the trees are ashes, maples and limes. Around this main building there are other buildings needed at a farm, cowshed, stable and others (many of them are built of stone blocks.)

Now about the name kings farm.  It has been kings property and produced food for the kings people when they visited the castle (I told before of the castle.) To day the government owns it.
If you want, I can tell you further, that this summer there are again cows on the property. It is a farmer there  beginning to produce milk.
