NORTH ATLANTIC NATIVE SHEEP AND WOOL CONFERENCE

Together with Founder Karin Flatøy Svarstad, the Agricultural Consulting Services in Greenland has decided to postpone the 10th Annual North Atlantic Native Sheep and Wool Conference in Narsarsuaq, Greenland until 2021, due to the global COVID-19 pandemic.

 

This conference is all about sharing knowledge and inspiration about sheep farming and production of wool products across the North Atlantic region.

Back in 1906, Pastor Jens Chemnitz introduced the first sheep to Greenland. The Greenlandic sheep were created after an extensive trial period with different North Atlantic sheep breeds. There are now approx. 21,000 sheep in Greenland! This unique tradition of modern day sheep farming in the exact areas where Vikings once laid their own agricultural roots in the 10th - 15th centuries has been honoured as UNESCO World Heritage.

WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT?

At this year’s conference you can expect to learn a lot about the agricultural lifestyle in Greenland and the rest of the North Atlantic region. We'll hold insightful courses with professionals from all over the world, and we've planned some super exiting excursions!
