About us

The farm lies in the small hamlet of Jamnica, which is at 800 metres above sea level, above the Meža Valley and close to the border with Austria.

It is typical of the Koroška region - in the middle of a meadow lies the main house, surrounded by outbuildings such as the stable, sawmill, woodshed, barn and granaries. Around the buildings are an orchard, meadows, a pond and spruce and pine forests.

We believe it necessary to underline the fact that we are constantly improving a mountain bike park - the Jamnica Single Trail Park in the surrounding forests.

Our farm has two certificates: ECO TOURISM FARM and FAMILY AND KIDS FRIENDLY FARM. We are also in the final stages of getting the CYCLIST FRIENDLY FARM certificate.

As you can see, we grow our food organically and involve the entire family into the process.

We want our guests to see and feel farm life as it once was. At the same time, we provide activities that are not so traditional on farms, including mountain biking. By blending these activities, we want our guests to enjoy the magic of life on a peaceful and remote farm while at the same time getting adrenaline-filled experience, for which our region is ideal.The farm lies in the small hamlet of Jamnica, which is at 800 metres above sea level, above the Meža Valley and close to the border with Austria.

Accomodation

We want to share with our guests the connectedness of people, animals, plants and soil distinctive to life on an eco farm. We have two cosy suites and the vintage Jurij and Lena cottage, whose 200 years exude the charm of authentic life on our farm.

Cuisine

Cuisine is important on our farm because we want you to really experience our way of life. Our ORGANIC food is home-grown. We produce several sorts of cereals (rye, spelt, oats…), vegetables, herbs, currants, raspberries, old apple varieties, pears and cherries. We pick blueberries and cranberries in nearby forests. We put all these on the table either freshly-picked or dried, in juices and jams, or in various dishes.

Our cattle spends most of the year in pastures and we built a special place for our pigs so they can walk freely around the farm. All animals are fed with home-made fodder and we take special care to breed satisfied animals in the best possible conditions.

If you want to make your own food, you can pick your greens from our garden, buy milk from our neighbours, and get eggs from our henhouse.

If you want us to take care of your food, we will prepare typical Koroška dishes, such as “kločavi nudli” (dried pear noodles), “žganci” (a dish similar to polenta, but prepared with finer grains) larded with cracknels, fermented milk and buckwheat “štruklji” (rolled dumplings). Our rye bread or, as it is called here, black bread, is yet another specialty, baked in a wood-fired oven to an old family recipe. It goes perfectly with home-made dried meats and a glass of home-made apple cider.

Another specialty in our cuisine are various delicacies made of spelt - side dishes, salads, bread, pastries and home-made spelt pasta.

Activities

The only thing limiting you around our farm is your imagination. Our family makes a special effort with the youngest visitors and because there is always work to be done on the farm, we are really happy to have an extra pair of small hands around. You can help us feed the pigs after breakfast, let cows out to pastures, collect eggs, and there is plenty of other chores. There are plenty of seasonal chores, such as harvesting hay, apple picking and other harvest chores. You will find out how interesting and exciting these tasks can be. If you are interested in the making of home-made rye bread, the lady of the house, who is also the main cook, will show you around. Of course, after the bread is baked a tasting is necessary. It is best done with our honey.

Zala will be happy to take you to her horse, which you can look after, prepare for riding and take out for a ride.

In the hot summer days you can take an hour’s drive to cool in splendid Austrian lakes, which are ideal for leisure and children’s play. In the valley you can visit a summer pool with slides and the Radlje Water Park, which boasts a natural pool.

Not to be forgotten, there is a playground right next to our house where you can play football, volleyball or table tennis. It also has a slide, swings and a sandbox. And the nearby pond is the perfect spot to test your fishing skills.

Numerous activities are also available in the winter, including snowball fights and sledding for kids, and skiing at the nearby Petzen and Kope resorts.

We also provide massages throughout the year.

Mountain Biking

Our farm is situated in the centre of the Jamnica Single Trail Park, which makes mountain biking one of our primary activities. You can choose to take bikes and criss-cross through Koroška to get to know its beauties, or, if you are feeling a bit more adventurous, you can get lost for hours in the myriad of marked single trails in the park we built with other tourism farms in the area. With our neighbours, the Bike Nomad agency, we provide guided tours around the local mountains. We can also organise tours around Slovenia for those who want more. The younger son, Matevž, is a mountain biking guide and can help you with either mending your bike or organising and advising you on your tours.

A nearby bike park in Austria, boasting the longest flow trail in Europe (11km) is a 40-minute drive away. It will be of special interest to mountainbikers.

For those yearning for something really special, we can organise a guided bike tour through the Mežica lead and zinc mine, which is also suitable for children. During the tour, you will get to know a lot of interesting details about the history of mining and the lives of miners or knapi as we call them. You can also embark on a kayaking adventure through the flooded tunnels of the mine or decide on a classical tour of the mine by foot. Tours in the mine are available year-round.
