Farmhouse "Bieszczadzka Koza"

Organic goat cheese and lots of it! This family-owned enterprise is run by Aleksandra and Miłosz who, like so many other romantics, left it all behind elsewhere and moved to Bieszczady to be closer to nature and a simpler, more traditional way of life. Buying a farm, they first thought they would be focused on crop-growing, but a change in subsidy laws led to their decision to raise and breed animals. Today the herd consists of over 200 female goats of Alpine and Carpathian breeds. Goats graze 'almost in the wild,' walking in the surrounding meadows and, yes, 'goats grazing on the meadows give superb milk.' Who'd have thought?

Milking takes place every day, producing approx. 200 litres of milk. For the production of cheese, only 'live,' unpasteurised milk is used. The only technological addition is lactic acid, and local natural herbs (wild garlic, lavender, hot peppers, pepper, fenugreek) are added to flavour various products. You simply have to try some, and you can by dropping by their farm store. Among the great variety of products you'll find jars of goat cheese balls in rich olive oil with wild garlic, sliced cheese cubes with herbs and hot peppers, jams and preserves and more. It's all delicious and worth weighing down the boot of your vehicle with. The farm is reached by a road which ends at the church in Smolnik, making this a great stop after you've seen the UNESCO-listed village church. Beware! Goats crossing!
