Like a lot of men who live outside Reykjavik on Iceland, Beggi is a Sheppard. It is a traditional work on the island. But because of increasing globalization the price for fur decreases a lot. To ensure adequate income most of the shepherds are forced to open a second business. Together with his friend Vidir –who works most time of the year as a captain for whale watching boats – Beggi started a small mussel farm in the west fjords of the island.
He harvests the mussels in his factory and sells them to local Restaurants to get some extra income
