Božović family lives in the village called Glavaca and its members are Milun, Nada and their daughter Jelena. Son Radovan visits occasionally with his family. Milun is the only heir of a numerous family who stayed in the village with his family and who works on the family farm. During summer months, all the people, who have been moving out of the village for decades, return to their home place primarily to visit this family that stayed there to cultivate and keep the family farm.
The family tradition is collecting forest fruit and wild medicinal herbs. Božović family recognizes and differentiates over 100 different tea species, which they collect, dry and pack in a traditional way. This process has been improved for years and besides medicinal herbs used for making tea, they produce a large number of products and natural cosmetics based on medicinal herbs completely. These products are used for improving people’s health as natural dietary supplements that complete the daily intake of vitamins, minerals and other nutritional ingredients that make the body healthier and stronger.
Besides tea herbs, the family also collects forest fruit: strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, apples, pears, elderberry, nuts and they make them into delicious juices, jams, preserves. They have an orchard in the yard, too and they grow chokeberry, apples, pears, cherries and plums and a field where they grow all the vegetables. The household has got a cow and so, milk and dairy products are always fresh, and the honey collected by the bees of this area has a special taste and value. The active work here starts in the early spring, everyone can join and take part in all the activities.
