Food and farming

Enjoy a relaxing stay at our Farmhotel. The same family has lived on the farm since the late 17th century. Our main occupation is cattle farming, horse breeding and tourism.

Recently diversified to visitor centre/restaurant.  Visitors can look directly through a window at the cows which produce the milk for the ice cream.  You can watch the cows eat their hay while enjoying refreshments. You can watch the farmers at work, farming and making ice-cream, cheese and skyr (a traditional Icelandic dairy product).

Our restaurant offers cuisine made from local ingredients. Cowshed café and The Barn Loft restaurant in a renovated barn featuring food products made on the farm from own dairy herd such as ice-cream, cheese and beef. Local farm products are also for sale at the café. 

Traditional and family-friendly farm stay with beautiful views over Eyjafjallajökull Volcano and Mt. Hekla. Rooms with private bathrooms.

We hope that you will enjoy your stay at our family farm. Over the high season there is often a lot of work to do around the farm, but don´t be afraid to talk to us, because that is the thing we love about our job, to meet new people.

Open all year for individuals and groups.
