Roaming free in the Highlands
Icelandic farms´ main occupation is raising sheep and cattle. Sheep farming is practiced through-out Iceland by approximately 2,000 farmers. The sheep graze freely in the wilderness from late spring, sustained by the Icelandic moss, wild grass and berries that grow on the loose volcanic soil and which lend the lean meat its unique, almost gamey taste. Fresh meat is available in September and October, but frozen meat is available all year round.
