A Glass of Fresh Milk Takes on New Meaning

2016 May 13

Gudlaug and Euberg stand looking livingly at some of their herd of dairy cows.

Come along with Arctic Deeply as it continues its journey through Iceland.

Stop on the way to meet the owners of a small family dairy farm working in an increasingly tourism driven economy.

The lush hayfields look so natural it’s easy to overlook the expertise it takes to grow such a crop in a cool, rainy climate where windstorms blow hard enough to break windows and sandblast the paint off cars. The deep knowledge of Iceland’s farmers can get lost amid today’s tourism narrative that highlights glaciers and thermal pools.
