Húsavík farm

The Húsavík farm is at the south shore of the fjord Steingrímsfjörður, on the road 68 about 2 km from the crossroads of Djúpvegur and Arnkötludalur. The area is well vegetated grassland with lakes and streams, and lowland heath and fens in between. The mountain pastures are up to 400 m high with sedge heath, fen, grassland and heather slopes.


The farm Gemlufall is located north of Dýrafjörður with about 250 sheep during winter. The summer pastures are beautifully situated between fjord and mountain, and the valleys and slopes are far away from any town. We know where the sheep are roaming during summer and are aware of their grazing habits. The ewes know exactly where to find the best food and lead their lambs to the tasty pastures. The products from the farm are sold directly to consumers under the label "Straight from the farm (beint frá býli)."  

About us

This project is a collaboration between the Nature Institute of the Westfjords, the ‚Farm Food Direct' – association (Beint frá Býli), the company Iceland fish export, a farm in Húsavík and a farm in Gemlufall in Westfjords and Snerpa (a telecommunications service provider). The project was funded by the development fund of the Westfjords in 2014 to get the project started.

We want consumer to be able to see where their meat originates and what steps it has gone through on the way to you. You as the consumer can then choose from which farm you would like your meat and decide what taste you prefer, since the pasture influences the taste of the lamb meat.
