Home Care and Animal Center Nurmolandia was founded in April 2018, as Eva's long-time dream of combining animals and children in her work.
Nurmolandia is located at the Nurminen family home in Jämsä, Central Finland. It's a 10 min drive from Himos, 45 min from Jyväskylä, 60 min from Tampere and 2 h 30 min from Helsinki.
Eva is married with two kids, a boy 6 yrs (2014) and a girl 8 yrs (2012)
Eva is also active in the local association of MLL (Mannerheim League for Child Welfare) in Jämsä and the whole family is a support family for PeLa (Save the Children).
In 2006 Eva graduated as Practical Nurse and 2018 as a Tutor for children and family work.
Eva's work career includes working in both senior homes/geriatrics and kindergarten, as well as educating children of all ages in physical training and how to deal with animals.
Nurmolandia has over 50 animals and 12 species of animals. In Nurmolandia you can see and admire horses, ponies, donkeys, sheep, goats, chickens, turkeys, quail, bunnies, dogs and cats all year round. In the summer you can also watch small calves that are in "summer care" at Nurmolandia. Nurmolandia's Domestic Animal Yard is open depending on Eva's other work, so the best way to get to meet the animals, is by contacting Eva directly, contact channels below.
Besides the animal husbandry activities, various farm work days, riding for beginners and experienced people, hiking with animals and nature walks in Nurmolandia's forest, as well as other animal activities are organized in Nurmolandia Animal Center.
We are part of the Green Care Finland organization and we work keeping nature and animal life in mind.
