Area: MontanaOur Farm is a quaint family farm in the valley, with all sorts of animals including alpacas, goats, chickens, two old cats and just one goose. The family is made up of five kids and two parents, but all the kids are out of the house except for two, the youngest and my 25 year old daughter who is home before going off on another world adventure. We are looking to fix up the house, clean up the alpaca barn, plant a garden in the spring, build a Green House, do some painting inside during the winter, and many other tasks that we would need help with.

Area: HvolsvöllurWe are a farm on the south parts of Iceland, 10 km from Eyjafjallajökull. On our farm we breed horses and we also have a very successful turf company. Our turf company is a family operated, and it has been from the year 1960. During the winter time we train our horses and we are also going over and preparing our machines and out buildings for the summer. The people that are living here is Guðmundur, who is the owner of the farm. And at the moment it´s one staff member, Kim, who has been working at the farm for the last 4 years. We also have 2 dogs, witch Kim owns. There is also 2 cats and 60 horses here. During the summer time it´s usually more staff members working here. Because the turf company is mostly operated during the summer, we also operate the turf company during the winter but in a smaller scale. We are also in tree planting during the summer. We have planted over 100 000 trees and there is a lot more to plant.
