Many farmers and food artisans offer a wide range of locally produced raw produce and food products, such as fruit and vegetable, sea buckthorn berries, and honey.
During the harvest season it’s easier than ever to be an “Axgan” - in other words, to eat, drink and buy locally. The concept of “axgan” means you only consume products and produce made in Åland while you are in Åland. Thanks to the many small scale producers and wide range of products, you can enjoy everything from fruits, green vegetables, meats and fish to sea buckthorn and honey.
Perfect conditions for beekeeping provide first-class honey and honey products, such as honey candies from Åland Honey.
Keep an eye out for Odlarringen cooperative of organic farmers. Local organic products also include a wide range of flour and groats from Överäng’s mill. Ålandsmejeriet ÅCA has organic milk in its range. Farmers also sell fruit, vegetables and root vegetables through Ålands Trädgårdshall cooperative.
You can also buy local raw produce and organic food products direct from the farmers and food artisans through many networks, for example by joining the Facebook group REKOÅland. Locals and visitors alike are welcome! The REKO platform offers for example organically grown potatoes, carrots and other veggies, eggs, bread, cakes, meats, jams, sea buckthorn berry juice and fermented products and fresh micro vegetables, such as radish and asparagus.
