What you'll do

You will experience the life of the shepherd for a day. We will meet at the farm and together we will put our 200-sheep flock out to pasture following the Mt. Hermada trails, a WWI open-air museum. You will enjoy nature at its own pace. While the sheep graze, you will discover the beauty of the Karst plateau, a land poor in water but rich in scents, intense as the flavour of our pecorino cheese. I will show you how to call the flock to move it from one pasture to the other. You will also learn some words in Slovenian, because this is a border land where stories and languages indissolubly intertwine. Once back at the farm, you will taste our cheese together with a good glass of local wine. In case of bad weather for pasture, we will visit the farm instead. Here, you will get to know the flock and discover all the activities related to sheep care. You will also meet our donkeys in an indoor workshop. Cheese tasting remains confirmed.

Andrea

I love farming and I do it with passion. The Antonič farm belongs to my wife’s family and its story crosses generations. In the last years, we’ve also become an educational farm because we think it is very important for children and families to be in contact with nature and rural activities. Our flock of 200 sheep, mostly of Karst native breed, is put out to pasture every day and its milk is the essence of our pecorino cheese.

Where you'll be

We will meet at the farm where you will see where our flock lives. Then, we will follow the Mt. Hermada trails to the pastures, that will be different depending on the period. On the way back, we will stop for cheese tasting either at the farm or at our farmhouse according to weather conditions.
