Aunt Lena's farm

Secluded farms represent a specific type of settlement, typical of the mountainous landscape of Koroška.

They embodied features of folk architecture and were built from timber and stone. A farm consisted of peasant house and farmland with forests. The estate was distributed around the farmhouse.

One of the farms still keeps the story of the past alive. On this farm once stood an old wooden house in which three aunts – Verona, Zofija, and Helena lived. Aunt Lena (Helena) is writing her life story for hundred years. A path like this holds many memories, old recipes, and wise advices.

All year, aunt Lena anticipates visitor; she is particularly excited about children. Each year she makes homemade specialties and hygiene utilities following her grandmother’s recipes.

She prepares short teaching stories about farm work in the company of animals. When harvesting herbs and fruits of the forest, she gets a lot of ideas for healing beverages and sweet treats. After hard work, she makes homemade snacks with sweet treats in the shadows of her garden house for all visitors.
