Life on the Stjörnugrís Farm in Iceland

Island Úvodní

In my previous contribution I attempted to draw you into my story, which is based on my desire to study and explore agriculture in Iceland, an extraordinary beautiful and resilient island on the border between the Arctic and Atlantic Oceans. I must say that I am very grateful for the fact that I have been able to do here what I like and what gives me a feeling of self-fulfilment for three years already. The conclusion of my previous story took place on a very traditional family farm situated in the northern part of Iceland that focused mainly on milk production. However, with the arrival of spring this year, after eight months of intense work, I started to hear inside me those soft manifestations of something that we all have inside. I knew it was time to move on and go learn new things and explore the so far unknown. In this post, I would like to share with you what my life is like now in Iceland and I would like to tell you about the family business where I am currently employed.

So how did it all start? The truth is that I had the option to stay; the spring work in the fields and construction of a new cowshed were ahead of us. However, one afternoon, I received a phone call from a man who ran a farm near the capital, Reykjavik, and it started off my career shift. After a few minutes of talking, Mr Geir Gunnar Geirsson suggested that we meet in person at the headquarters of their company. I did not hesitate and the following week I went to meet Mr Geirssonem. One thing led to another and after a few days, I left the north with thanks and moved to a new place. I felt I had the chance to make good use of my knowledge and it was also clear to me that a great new opportunity opened up for me to learn new things in a relatively broad area.
