Selfoss to Become Iceland’s Dairy Town

Cowshed stink in a barrel, palomino lampposts, cow tails and a moo square will be part of the experience of travelers to Selfoss, south Iceland, this summer, as it will henceforth be known as Iceland’s Dairy Town.

A declaration of intent on establishing a dairy industry museum in the town was recently signed by the municipality Árborg and MS Iceland Dairies, reports.

Afterwards a decision was made to market Selfoss as Iceland’s Dairy Town in cooperation with the local federation of trade and services.

Town council member Elfa Dögg Þórðardóttir will lead the task force responsible. She said an icon for the Dairy Town, a cow which will likely be called Bella, is being designed.
