Food producers

Bread bakers, pastry makers, manufacturers of homemade cheese, meat products, sausages and other treats. These facilities offer high-quality food that is produced in small volumes and is, therefore, not sold at supermarkets.

  • The offer is very diverse, ranging from large farms and companies to small and individual ones.
  • Tours of a manufacturing facility or farm usually end with product tastings and purchases.
  • Farms often produce raw materials such as milk, as well as secondary products such as soured milk, buttermilk, cheese and yogurt.
  • Many farms operate in various sectors – dairy products, vegetables, berries, fruit or animal products. The sectors supplement one another, and so the farms are more interesting to visitors, because the offer of tastings and purchases is very diverse, indeed.

Floating is a unique way to boost your health.  You’ll be dipped into a warm magnesium salt solution, which will allow your body to relax completely in physical, emotional and intellectual terms.  The solution (MgSO4) is very concentrated, and it has a temperature of +37C, which is body temperature.  That’s what makes the procedure so relaxing.  Your body will not sink because of the concentration of salt, and you will float above it like bobber.  You will relax all of your tendons and possibly compressed nerves.  Your limbs will “oil up.”  Your body will receive a very necessary dose of magnesium through your skin.

You can also take part in baking KrapesKrepes crepes – home baked crepes made of milk from one neighbouring homestead and eggs from another neighbouring homestead.  You can also prepare a meal on a Himalayan salt board
