    Who We Are

    The farm was built in 1812, in a country baroque style. It is a state-protected landmark, situated on the outskirts of a quiet village, amidst pasture and fields. The farm specializes in goat keeping and cheese production.

    Our product received the following awards:
    In 2001 - winner of national exhibition of sheep and goat cheese in the categories natural cheeses and flavoured cheeses.
    In 2007 - 2nd place in the competition of South Bohemia “Chutná hezky jihočesky” for South Bohemian goat cheese of Eidam type.
    In 2008 - 2nd place in the competition of South Bohemia “Chutná hezky jihočesky” for South Bohemian semi-hard goat cheese.

    We use most of our land as pasture and meadows. We also run a small shop offering organic foods.

    The farm is a member of the Association of Ecological Farmers PRO-BIO, which guarantees that its members observe the rules of ecological farming. In 1993 we won Knight Horsky Cup, the prize for the best ecological farmer of the year.

    We welcome all visitors interested in organic food and particularly families with children.
