Seinäjoki Ilmajoki Jalasjärvi



The village of Taivalmaa is located on the border between the city of Kurika and the settlement of Peräseinäjoki, which is part of the city of Seinäjoki. It is 15 kilometers to the center of Jalasjärvi, 9 kilometers to Peräseinäjoki and 35 kilometers to Seinäjoki. The village is a traditional agricultural area, which, however, as farm sizes have increased, has turned into a comfortable place to live, from where you can go to work outside the village. There are just under 200 residents in the village, and there are also plenty of leisure apartments. A peaceful, warm-hearted community in the middle of diverse nature adds to the comfort of living.


The municipality's services are mostly in the center. In addition to agriculture, the village has e.g. earthmoving, mining, bus transport, furniture and metal industry companies, graphic design and computer maintenance company, car electrical and carriage maintenance, online tire shop and coffee machine dealership, and pet care. Taivaltupa offers space for party organizers.
