Ramona is the 4th generation running the farm at Hetlandstunet Gard. Kai and Ramona took over the farm in January 2018. At that time, the focus was only onsheep on the farm. Now you can experience so-called “hobby birds”, such as cemani, bronze turkeys, quail and blue peacocks on the farm, in addition to an ever-increasing herd of sheep; today it is approx. 100 winter kept sheep at Hetlandstunet Gard.
In 2020, the farm started with free-range pigs. The meat is very good, and customers have already ordered meat for 2021, so the farm is investing further in this. Kai and Ramona are in the initial phase of honey production, and Kai is in the process of learning the art of queen breeding. In the area where the pigs went last year, bee-friendly flowers will now be sown.
Hetlandstunet Gard is located in a scenic and fertile landscape characterized by 1.5 million year old gneiss, and the moraines (gravel, sand and stone) left behind by the ice over 10,000 years ago.
