Local ingredients and diverse food traditions are highly regarded in Austurland. In the past few years, more farmers have started selling their own products directly from their farm. At the same time, more restaurants and cafés serve dishes with locally grown produce.

Fjóshornið is located at the Egilsstaðir farm, where the same family has engaged in farming for nearly 130 years. Skyr, yogurt and cheese is produced all year round, made out of cows' milk, but Fjóshornið café is only open in the summertime. You can also buy beef directly from the farm. At the café, you can sit down in a cozy environment, enjoy homemade pastries and drink good coffee.  Unfortunately, Fjóshornið café won't be open during the summer of 2022. If you are interested in one of our products please contact us via Facebook, e-mail or phone.
