Most of the hay fields around Fuglafjørður go right up the steep mountainsides, not surprising, since there is so little flat land around the bay. My guess is that the largest piece of flat land is the football/soccer field, and I am pretty sure that is not real grass. Families who own sheep often will rent some of the small fields, and then most of the work of harvesting the hay is done by hand. In a land with so much fog and rain, the Faroese people really do make hay while the sun shines.
