Homemade food. There is no menu and everything served to the guests is the product from their garden or orchard. Thus, these hosts give their guests an opportunity to enjoy the traditional dishes, distinctive for the region. It is worth to mention here that servings are not limited and that there are several dishes in the offer with a soup for lunch. Guests who eat special food have to state it in advance and their wishes will be fulfilled (they are allergic, they do not eat meat, some vegetable or similar).
Since beekeeping is a tradition in this household, guests will have a chance to meet two organic honey producers (a father and a son), to witness the love they put into their long time work, and to learn something through “beekeeping lessons”.
Guest can also take part in gathering of plums and apples, raspberry picking, digging the garden. Milan (your host) will be honored if you decide to take part in brandy production, especially in its tasting, since it has been their brand product for several years.
Also, it could be possible to organize workshops on honey extraction, managed by Milan and his son (depending on the period of the visit).

Their four children are included in the family business. Each of them helps in garden and orchard works, they welcome guests and help in serving them. Milan and his son Martin are licensed honey producers. Beekeeping has been a tradition in this family for several generations. Besides producing honey for their own and local market, they produce homemade brandy, a mead and other honey products (wax and propolis, for example). Maja makes excellent salads, jams, juices, and liqueurs and their tasting is inevitable and their purchase is possible.

Apples, plums, raspberries are grown in order to make brandy, one of the brands of the house. Milan has been selling brandies made of plums and apples, as well as mead and honey brandy for a long time, besides beekeeping and the production and sale of honey. Your hostess Maja makes different types of jams, salads, juices and liqueurs, mostly for the family and guests, but they can also be purchased. All the food offered to the guests is produced by the hosts, so it is all based on the concept of traditional and homemade-organic nutrition.
