We spent a day in south Iceland with Pálína Axelsdóttir Njarðvík. She showed us around her family’s sheep farm at the peak of lambing season, and we were lucky enough to witness the birth of a lamb!
Pálína opened up about the highs and lows of agricultural life in the Icelandic countryside, experiences which she also shares on her popular Instagram account @farmlifeiceland.
Note: Due to the effect the Coronavirus is having on tourism in Iceland, it’s become increasingly difficult for the Grapevine to survive. If you enjoy our content and want to help the Grapevine’s journalists do things like eat and pay rent, please consider joining our High Five Club.
