Only the native red deer (Cervus elaphus atlanticus) can be used for deer farming in Norway. The first farms were established around 1985, and now there are 60-70 deer farms in the country. Torsvoll Hjort in the Røros region is one of them, and what is special with this farm it the location, quite high up in the mountains. Since the deer usually lives closer to the coast. At Torsvoll the animals are also quite used to people. They are not tamed, but when the owners offer some tasty food they are quite eager to come. There are more photos from the deer farm in my photo gallery.
