We work together as reindeer herders in three generations.
I´m Anne (second from left). Mother of three. I´ m 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 small business. If you visit us you can support a local female owned small business. I´ m learning and doing traditional Sámi handcrafts. I use mostly nature materials that I collect around the year. I also make jewelry by beading small glass beads.
I keep up three Instagram accounts.
@karhukoru is for my jewelry.
@angelireindeer is my personal/business account.
@jouninporo is our reindeer meat shop.
My husband name is Janne (first on left). He is a professional reindeer herder. He is a hunter and a fisher. He can fix everything. Janne´ s family has been herding reindeer for over 400 years. And my family has had reindeer before the last war here. We are proud to teach reindeer herding to our three children. Well-being of our reindeer is our top priority.
We speak Inari Sámi at our home. Only 300 people can speak it. You can hear about our ways of keeping our endangered language alive on our reindeer farm visit.
We pursue in self-sufficiency in many things. We hunt and fish. We pick berries and forage wildfood. We have a veggie garden where we grow most of our yearly vegetables.
Thank you for supporting our small sustainable business.
