I´ m Anne. Mother of three. I am reindeer herder and Nature producer by profession. I love fishing and exploring flora and fauna. I love to work with animals. Angeli reindeer farm is my very own small business. If you visit us you can support a sustainable small local business. My small business has a sustainable travel certificate called Green activities years 2020-2024. And my small business has gone through the program called Sustainable Travel Finland on the same years. With these labels I want to prove my guests the sustainable choices my small business makes.

I do traditional handcrafts for our family and friends. I use mostly nature materials like reindeer leather, fish leather, Pine roots and fish vertebra. I also make jewelry with glass beads. We have a small giftshop at our reindeer farm where you can find my handcraft. Small varied selection of unique items. We also sell beautiful reindeer antlers.

I keep up Instagram accounts.

@karhukoru is for my jewelry.

@angelireindeer is my personal/business account telling about our self-sufficient nature connected way of life.

We speak Inari Sámi at our home. Only about 500 people can speak it. You can hear about our ways to keep this endangered language alive while visiting us.

My husband name is Janne. He is a professional reindeer herder. Janne and he´ s mother has a reindeer meat shop in Inari. Janne´  s late father founded our family farm shop. Janne is a hunter and a fisher and he brings local food to our table. He can fix everything :) Janne´ s family has been herding reindeer for over 400 years. My family has had also reindeer before. We are proud to continue reindeer herding with our three children.

We pursue in self-sufficiency in many ways. We hunt and fish. We pick berries and forage wildfood. We have a veggie garden and we grow most of our yearly vegetables. We make our own rich soil from our bio waste in four composts. We rather fix broken things then buy new ones. I´ m more then happy to share about these important things to our family for my guests.

We support the bugs and bees at our reindeer farm by growing flowers that bloom in different seasons and we have built many bug-hotels around our home. We favor local plants that bees prefer such as Woolly Willow, Ligularia Hietala and Rowan.

We maintain at our reindeer farm 12 birdhouses every year. We report bird sightings to the world's largest nature conservation organization Birdlife. 

Thank you for supporting my small sustainable business.

Our visit is authentic and unique product. Visit is based on existing real home, local culture and lifestyle of reindeer herders.

We are professional reindeer herders. Our reindeer graze free traditional Sámi way. Reindeer for us is livelihood, food, culture, Sámi languages, traditional knowledge, clothing, handcraft materials, nature, history, all! 

By reindeer herding nature comes very important for us. We do big and small things to help nature diversity. 

We have built 12 birdhouses around our home farm and we maintain those yearly. We feed carefully wild birds through the long winter. We report bird sightings to the world's largest nature conservation organization Birdlife.

Summer time we grow flowers that bloom in different seasons for the bees and the butterflyes. And we have built many bug-hotels. Every year we add more diversity to our surroundings. We favor local plants that bees prefer such as Woolly Willow, Ligularia Hietala and Rowan.

Traditional Sámi handcrafts are made from nature materials. I make handcrafts from pine tree roots, fish and reindeer leather and fish bones. Handcrafts are made for our family and visitor can explore them on the visit. Variable availability is to be sold in our giftshop. Our guest has a choice to buy a locally handmade item for a souvenier instead of mass produced item brought from far. Our giftshop has only recycled and ecological gift wrapping and gift boxes.

Nature materials are clearly shown at our reindeer farm. On the sings, decoration and even in host clothes. It can inspire our visitors to apriciate nature more and decorate their homes with nature materials found near their homes instead of mass produced plastic things.

Visit to our reindeer farm gives the visitor information about the history of the Sámi people and the revival of the Sámi language through stories, books and handcrafts.
