Who We Are

Something about us

We are an experiential, educational farm, producing for ourselves as well as for courses. We teach students where their food comes from, and how it gets to the table. Included are: milking goats, cheese making, baking bread and foraging for edible plants. Our farm has been in the family for four generations. We are always building renewing, regenerating and of course growing. We work on 6 hectares of land: producing our own milk, meat, eggs, fruit and vegetables. It’s all organic! Our property is beautiful, surrounded by a pine forest and lovely meadows. We are only 1 hour south of Prague; easily reached by public transportation.

We enjoy meeting new people, and look forward to introducing you to our farm!
