Farmi Forest Oy – Pioneer in smart forestry

The story of Farmi Forest Oy got its start with the manufacture of tractor machinery in 1962. We were among the first to introduce forestry machines for use on farming tractors and have been involved in designing the innovative products that have shaken up the forest industry. FARMI-products are marketed around the world – over 80% of end-users are outside of Finland in over 30 countries. Sales and distribution are handled by over 40 importers or representative agents. The total delivery volume is already close to 300,000 units. Farmi Forest’s production facility is located in Iisalmi, Peltosalmi, about 500 kilometres north of Helsinki.

QUALITY WITH OVER 50 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE

Many of Farmi Forest’s customers and importers are into their second generation of working with FARMI products. Our products use only the highest quality raw materials and the industry’s most cutting-edge components. Our production machines represent the latest in technology, and IT is utilised in all operations. Farmi’s quality is ensured by a highly trained, professional staff. The quality system conforms to ISO 9001 standards and has been certified since 1994. We invest heavily in product development. The resulting technical solutions for many of the products are born from cooperation with end-users, with the goal of improving customer productivity.

EFFICIENT WOOD TRANSPORT AND CLEAN BIOENERGY

FARMI products have traditionally been so-called host-line machines, for which the standard farm tractor’s area of use has been expanded to forestry. Current farm tractors have grown, and thus the product family has added larger cranes for wood processing as well as forest pole trailers. The FARMI product family consists of woodchippers, timber trailers and cranes, felling heads, skidders, winches and firewood processors. With these products, Farmi Forest enables its customers to produce and transport clean domestic bioenergy from stump to furnace.
