The visit of AgriCulinary students was directed to Kiipula Gardens teaching garden in Turenki and the biodynamic Haltijan farm in Vesilahti.

The Haltijan farm produces biodynamically vegetables, honey, flowers, beef, and lamb meat, as well as hides and wool. The farm hosts events and courses, and the restaurant operates on weekends.
