PIENA MUIZA - BERGHOF

Komlekss iekārtots mūsdienās atjaunotās Sieksātes (Berghof) muižas teritorijā.

Muižas klētī un sierotavā ir izveidots Piena muzejs (no 1985. g.), kur izsekojams piena ceļš no govs līdz gatavai produkcijai. Šajā nolūkā izveidota didaktiskā govs jeb „runājošā gotiņa” ar teliņu, kas „stāsta” un uzskatāmi „parāda”, kā barība virzas cauri govs četrkameru kuņģim. Minētais stāsts ir tulkots četrās valodās. Šo, tāpat kā nākamo – slaucamas govs „manekenu” ir iecienījušas ģimenes ar bērniem un skolu ekskursijas. Interesenti var sakult sviestu un degustēt to. Bērni var apskatīt dambriežu dārzu.

Muižas restorānā maksimāli izmanto vietējo (no vietējiem zemniekiem iegādāto) produkciju, bet garšvielas un zaļumus audzē muižas dārzā. Ēdienkartē ir iekļauti arī latviešu nacionālie ēdieni, piemēram, - kaņepju sviests. Kā firmas ēdiens tiek pasniegta ķirbja zupa ar siera kūku un saldējuma kokteili.

Veselības atjaunošanas nolūkā piedāvā „Piena SPA” – relaksējošas vannu peldes, ķermeņa masāžu u.c., kuru procesā izmanto pašu muižas meistaru izgatavotos ķermeņa kopšanas produktus. Piedāvā arī citas veselībai draudzīgas aktivitātes – nūjas (nūjošana), bezmaksas velosipēdus un tenisa kortus.
