CAPTURE THE FLAVOR OF THE COUNTRY WITH AN INSPIRING COOKING WORKSHOP
CREATE YOUR OWN DELICIOUS MEAL FROM PURE FREE-RANGED LAMB MEAT
At Bjarteyjarsandur Farm people live and work in a way that promotes an ecological and sustainable way of life. Here you get to know the culinary history of Iceland, learn about its culture and, most importantly, cook your own Icelandic meal together with the house chef. The tour takes us through the picturesque area of Hvalfjörður bay, where we enjoy the scenic landscape and peaceful farming region. Once arrived at the traditional sheep farm, we enjoy the hospitality of the family and participate in food sampling and meal preparation.
A visit to Bjarteyjarsandur sheep farm is an ideal way to experience the Icelandic country life first hand. The same family has lived on the farm since 1887 and the current generation is an outstanding example how a long-term family tradition can go hand-in-hand with innovation and creativity. The farm is well known for its award winning food produces on sale in the Farm Shop and Farm Restaurant.
Depending on weather and season we go and pick wild herbs and berries to spice up the main course, or have a relaxing walk to the beach, which is a nature reserve for birds, such as the Eider duck. On the way we may meet sheep, horses, chickens, goats, rabbits, dogs and cats, all roaming freely around the fields.
