    Description

    Hi, we are a small family farm focused on goat and milk cows. For our own needs, we keep poultry, pigs and sheep. From milk we produce cheeses, yoghurts and other goodies. Working with a farm helps us with 2mules and donkey. We farm for about 3ha in the protected landscape area "Kokořínsko-Máchův kraj", so there are many places for a trips to nature, castles etc.We live in an old house that we're just renovating. Friends and visitors can use the true Mongolian yurt on the meadow behind the house.
    We have two children Marian (6 years) and Zorka (3 years). For pleasure we have 3 wolfdogs, and 1cat.

    Help

    We welcome any help around the farm and the house reconstruction.
    We are happy to teach you to milk goats and cows, to process milk for cheese, etc., to care for all our animals (daily feeding, milking, exaggeration, assisting with deliveries ...). Every year, it is necessary to repair fencing, mowing grass, planting plants, preparing wood for winter, cleaning animal shelters, manipulating hay tractors, etc. There is also a lot of work around the house. The house is very old, we try to repair the traditional practices. In the back of the house we build a small cheese factory.

    There is a true Mongolian yurt on the meadow behind our house. There are 2 beds, a table, sitting chairs. Lighting is provided by a photovoltaic panel. It is good to take a sleeping bag. Drinking water is a few yards from yurt. Dry toilet is at the house. A shower, washing machine is available in our house. We prepare a meal in the house for all, we eat mostly in the house or outside the yurt. From the yurt there is a view of the pastures with the animals and the Bezděz castle.
    And you can use your own tent of course:-)

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Our farm is in the protected landscape area of Kokořínsko Macha region, which is typical of the deep valleys. The area is very attractive for tourists and cyclists as well as for nature lovers. Since 2014 there has even been a wolf pack :-). The village we live in is in the monument zone and you can see many beautiful houses here. My husband is a historian, I am an ecologist, so we are glad to hear a lot of interesting information about the region and its history :-).

    How to traveler to us? By train or by bus to Mšeno, Mělník, Mladá Boleslav or Doksy. From these village we pick up you.

    Dogs or other pet please leave at home. We have 3 wolfdogs that are like a pack, so it is not good for us to take other dogs. Thank you! :-)
