A strawberry greenhouse has been badly damaged last night in Bláskógabyggð. The greenhouse measures about 2,000 square meters and is home to about 18,200 strawberry plants.
“There will be no berries until at least the next year,” said Hólmfríður Geirsdóttir, a horticultural farmer and owner of Strawberry Land in Bláskógabyggð.
During the summer, her greenhouse produces 1000-1500 kg of strawberries a week. The damage done by the storm is yet hard to estimate, but it seems like the greenhouse will be out of work for at least one season.
