Where to start? We are a family in the western part of Iceland, at the gates of the Westfjords, Beggi runs the sheep farm. We have 400 sheep and all possible trouble that can be connected to sheep: fixing fences in the summer, gathering sheep in the autumn, feed them and shear them in the winter and then lambing season in spring.
We are running a small mussel farm (shellfish) that we have to attend to twice a week
We are also renovating three houses that we own in the area. We are usually hosting 2-8 people at the same time and our current record is having people from 5 continents at the same time!

It's been over 3 years since we hosted our first volunteers. Since then we have hosted over 200 people and so many of them have visited us again and helped us.
We have absolutely no idea what we're doing right. We ask people to work hard, but we take long coffee breaks that are filled with endless stories and jokes. We have met people from all over the world that we know will be our friends for a lifetime and we will never be able to thank them enough for all their help.
