Join us on a visit to the traditional “salaš” or sheep farm in the remote countryside…
Get familiar with the daily li fe on a farm, sample fresh made organic cheese, have a taste of “Žinčica” – popular drink made from whey, byproduct from lump cheese making. These sheep farms are truly organic, and have been a Slovak tradition for many years. Shepherds and sheep farmers spend entire summer in the high mountains where rich pastures are plentiful, an ideal environment for free roaming herds of sheep to feed on.
Spend time in the wooden huts where farmers and shepherds live and work, witness first hand how different cheeses are made – from lump cheese, to unique “Bryndza” cheese or smoked cheese called “Oštiepok”.
