Haukabø Angus and Highland Cattle.
To us animal welfare and sustainable use of land and local recourses are important.
The farm has about 12 acres cropland and about 370 acres used for pasture.
Please contact us for more information.
- Breeding Aberdeen Angus since 1998 and Scottish Highland Cattle since 2005.
- We get about 30-35 calves per year, where most of these are Angus.
- Sell live animals for breeding to many parts of Norway. Our cattle are known to be calm and well socialized.
- We also sell our own meat.
- Every summer we split our cows into 5-7 different herds. Their “job” is to graze and keep the landscape open in various locations around Vinje. Every herd is from 3-50 animals big, depending on the area. They are very popular among locals and tourists. One of the ranges where they graze is located 850-1500 meters above sea level!
- Our vision is that Haukabø farm should be a farm with good animal welfare, positive experiences and room for growth and development.
