    Are you interested in ice cream making and experience how milkproduction is working?
    We are two families and run a dairy farm with 65 milking cows. . We run a little creamery where we produce milk products, such as ice cream, and skyr (the Icelandic traditional yogurt).
    We are located in the north of Iceland, in the valley of Icelandic saga.
    We are looking for open minded, responsible and self initiated people who are not afraid to try new things and can handle it to get in contact with cows and there surroundings. You should be well conditioned due to the fact that farmwork can require that.
    The creamery will give you a good insight into how we make the traditional Icelandic skyr as well as Ice cream.
    We offer you a family close stay with the possibility to have your private space including your own bathroom in a beautiful landscape. During the wintertime you can watch Northernlights in the backyard and in the summertime you can enjoy the midnight sun.
