Summer workers for our greenhouses!

We are recruiting eager and enthusiastic people into our garden

Oksasen Puutarha is very well-known and recognized for its high-quality salads and herbs. We offer  versatile and healthy local food from the pure Finnish countryside. 

In autumn 2022 Oksasen Puutarha bought another family-owned garden, Pousin Puutarha. Both gardens  share the common value of family business, high-quality products, persistence, and continuous  development. The total production rises for more than 20 milj. potted herbs and lettuce, which is ~20% of  the total market in Finland. Oksasen Puutarha has its own brands and contract manufacturing.


We are now looking for summer workers for our greenhouses in Paattinen and Oripää
