Vallanes

Vegetarian in Lagarfljót

Vallanes is an organic farm growing grain (primarily barley), herbs and vegetables and packaging these under the Móðir Jörð (Mother Earth) brand. The farm welcomes visitors; there's a stylishly rustic cafe-farmshop (built entirely with wood grown on the farm) serving a wholesome vegetarian lunch buffet, or visitors can prebook a field-to-table breakfast that comes with a farm tour (4500kr).

You can also buy a range of speciality products such as jams, pestos and crispbreads.

Note that Vallanes also has accommodation (sleeping-bag bed 5000kr to 6000kr, cottage double 22,000kr, four-person apartment 34,000kr), and accepts volunteer workers through the WWOOF program (Worldwide Opportunities on Organic Farms; www.wwoof.net).

The farm is on Rte 931, about 13km from Egilsstaðir.
