Regular farm work

- and want to work on an Icelandic farm? 

If the answer is yes, then please read on.  We offer work on farms all around Iceland, where you will be working beside Icelandic families on their farms in our unique countryside.  


What is the work like? 

The most common farmwork involves taking care of cattle (the ones with the big brown eyes) and sheep (more greyish ); caring for the cows by milking and feeding them all year around, gathering the sheep in the fall for the shearing, helping with the birthing of the lambs in the spring and the hay-making in the summer. You are also expected to assist with the household chores.
