Well if your dream is to live off your land fully, be completely self-sufficient and sustainable, ya might as well buy a farm right?
We came across Heydalur (heydalur.is) in the Westfjords of Iceland during our camper van trip around Iceland in May 2020. Blown away by the perfection of the space.
The energy in the converted sheep shed which now is home to apple, cherry, grape trees is incredibly special.
Such a simple set up done, with constant running geothermal water being fed into the pool within the greenhouse. The water is readily available from the depths of the the Earth in Iceland – basically it’s volcano heated water since Iceland is one giant volcano. Amazing right?
But there is little maintenance done on this farm (#FarmLife) and a huge amount of food is produced every year. It’s heaven on Earth.
And so funny enough when we ran into Heydalur, we had already been thinking of getting a farm (or at least land) to grow an abundance of food. But we really didn’t know something like this would be possible. I mean…exotic fruit in Iceland?! YES!
Shortly after our Westfjords trip we found ourselves again in the North of Iceland on a farmland that we were ready to convert into a garden of Eden.
And so…how did our new dream unfold?
Watch to find out.
