Aunty 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
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.
