About Us

This is the official website for the Icelandic Lamb Marketing board. There are seven individual companies in Iceland that offer lamb for export. We encourage you to contact them directly and see what they can do for you. 

Sheep farming in Iceland is as old as the settlement of Iceland itself. To this day farmers are rearing their sheep by a method established by centuries of tradition, with most farms still family-owned and operated. The breed is still the same as in the time of the Vikings – sturdy small animals, well adapted to the environment.

Much of Iceland’s lamb production is simply based on sustainably harvesting the bounties of nature. The use of hormones is prohibited and antibiotics are strictly regulated.

The Icelandic weather, unpolluted air and abundant supply of clean mountain water make the use of pesticides and herbicides unnecessary. The cool climate protects the land against many diseases and pests which plague agriculture in warmer latitudes. Due to Iceland’s geographical isolation and agri-cultural regulation, which prohibits the importing of live animals, many common animal diseases are yet unknown in Iceland.

The lambs are entirely reared outdoors. Their natural diet of sedge, willow, thrift, mass campion, and berries makes the Icelandic lamb instantly recognizable for its delicious and distinctive taste.
