Currently farm "Viesturi" with household "Akati" covers the total area of land of 1087 ha. Every year 62.30 ha of the agriculture land is being processed here.

Farm is engaged in the biological agriculture: grows crop, potatoes, strawberries, cherries. Farm also deals with the biological pig-breeding and cattle breeding. In year 1998 a non-traditional agricultural direction was started: babies of the African ostrich were purchased, special winter and summer homes for them were built. Gradually mini zoo of birds were made in the farm: peacocks, pheasants, decorative ducks, turkeys, African black ostriches, Australian emu and French grey goose were purchased. A special pond for the recreation of tourists were dug out and in the perspective there is a plan to create around the pond a cultural historical scenery of the nature park with the appropriate greenery of the species of trees.

Scenery is formed around the dwelling house. Pine forest that stands close to the dwelling house gives fresh air with the therapeutic effect. Mini zoo of exotic birds "Viesturi" offers excursions around the mini zoo, a possibility to view peacocks, pheasants, turkeys, African black ostriches, Australian emu, as well as piglets, cows, rabbits, sheep’s, goats and other household animals. Places for tents in total silence at the shore of the lake embosomed by forest.
