In the shelter of Pohorje
At 700 metres above sea level, in an idyllic place where the slopes of the Pohorje mountains gradually give way to the plains, the Baron organic farm has been situated for over 200 years.
Our farm covers an area of 18 hectares, 8 hectares of which are the fields, meadows, orchard, herb and vegetable gardens which are cultivated with our hard-working hands. Thus, we take care of the self-sufficiency of our farm. We opened a tourist farm in 1991 for our guests to enjoy the delicacies from our kitchen. In 1999, we switched to environmentally friendly farming, for which we have received the organic label for many years. In 2019, we acquired an environmental certificate – Green Key Certification – and in 2020, also the Slovenia Green Cuisine label.
Animals – our friends
Our farm offers a pleasant home for different animals that are especially interesting for children: a pony, a Vietnamese pig, goats, cats, a dog, bunnies, chicken, ducks, geese, pigs, cows and calves (Pohorje beef).
Where everything grows with good intentions
Our organic farm boasts a meticulously arranged organic herbal garden with more than 60 different herbs. They are used for teas, homemade spreads, juices, liqueurs, herbal spirits, pesto or are dried for dry seasonings. All the herbs have name tags on which you can also find information about the usage of a particular herb. Beside generally known herbs, in our garden you can also find some more unusual herbs, such as elecampane, angelica and clary sage.
