Get to know our farm

From the start, our goal has been to produce in an environmentally sustainable way, and paying close attention to preserving the biodiversity of the local area. At the Hakamaa Sheep Farm, every single sheep is valuable. Our flock of sheep includes the Common Finnish sheep, the somewhat rarer Rhinoceros, the Norwegian Rygja sheep that you can recognise from their hefty fleece, and combinations of these breeds.

Come and visit us

Come and experience our way of living in the farm where we herd our sheep in a natural way, respecting the animals’ needs. At the Hakamaa Sheep Farm you can learn about ecologically sustainable sheep farming, eat lovingly cooked homemade food made from local produce, buy naturally produced, high quality groceries and other goods, or simply let yourself be captivated by the authentic natural charm of our farm and its many stories.

The Hakamaa Farm Shop

In our Farm Shop you find locally, ethically and ecologically produced, high quality groceries, lamb fleece and sheep wool.

The Cornerstones of Our Business

Ethicality and Fair Trade

The main underlying principle for both us and the farms we work with is that we put the wellbeing of both their people and animals in the centre of all the our operations. All our animals get to live a life typical for their species’ needs, and all our employees receive a fair compensation for their work. The prices of our products reflect these ethical standards and are set so that we can guarantee a sustainable and healthy food production both now and going forward.

Safety

We put a big emphasis on food hygiene and safety of our products. We strive to increase the quality and safety of our products primarily through smart use of technology, not by adding chemicals and preservatives. This is also reflected in the clear and informative labelling we have in all our products. Transparency is particularly important to us and we want to give our customers all the information they would want about how and where the produce they buy was made. After all, it is nice to know where and how the jam you add to your morning porridge was made.

A lot of natural taste, very little sugar

We strive for authenticity and deliciousness in our food, with as little added sugar as possible and preferably with no added preservatives. We think that we have done a good job here, as for example the amount of sugar added to our jams is very small compared to the typical supermarket jam.

Uncompromised style

Style matters! We want our products not only to be a real treat for your taste buds, but also visually pleasing. We put a lot of effort on the design of our product packaging and we are always in the lookout for more environmentally friendly packaging solutions. Our jams and juices are a joy to keep on display in your kitchen but they are also a great gifting idea, even for the most discerning friend.
