    We are Juš and Kim (27, 29), an engineer and a designer by education, farmers by profession. Currently living the life in Bohinjska Bela, Slovenia.
    In a valley carved by the river and glacier, on the periphery of the only national park, both river banks are suitable for cultivation and settlements. On the west-side bank, surrounded by densely forested plateau and the easternmost parts of the Julian Alps, we are regenerating a “sleeping” farm back to life.

    We started with the knowledge from modern techniques of regenerative agriculture and upgraded the model to adapt it to new standards of not starting from zero, but starting from too much and moving towards zero - making it easier for future generations to start similar projects on their own.
    In the four years of the project we have established a market garden, composting station, integrated MOB grazing, pastured meat birds, perennial lines and landscaping. Along side we are renovating the infrastructure, the house, barn, and other structures the farm includes. In 2023 we have started with forest work, basic forest maintenance, firewood and slow renovation of forest cabins. The progress is slow - but constant.
    The terrain here is hard to cultivate and being a farmer is not yet profitable or respected. With our projects and lifestyle we are improving the stigmatisation of farming life and hopefully encouraging people around us to understand the new paradigm. Our goal is being a good model others can adapt, enjoying farming that allows harvesting not just organic crops, but also other amenities of modern life, without overexploitation.
