Welcome to our farm in Bizeljsko, Slovenia. OUR FARM is a 100 sqm large, completely equipped house in the village of Bizeljsko in the hart of Kozjansko park, which is located in the eastern Slovenia, on the south of Styria and along the Croatian border. The well-preserved landscape along the Sotla river is one of the oldest and most extensive protected regions in Slovenia. The protected region is a mosaic of subalpine mountains, hills, plains along the Sotla river, flowering meadows and high tree orchards. Unspoiled nature and a rich cultural heritage offer many opportunities for research, enjoyment and relaxation. A high level of biotic diversity classifies park as one of the most important protected natural regions in both Slovenia and Europe. Most of the park belongs to an important site protected by Natura 2000 and is classified as a biosphere region of Kozjansko and Obsotelje. Past seclusion of the countryside of Kozjansko has allowed for a unique symbiosis of nature and culture, tradition and modernity, which offers unforgettable images to visitors.

On the left bank of Sava, the people are making red and white “Bizeljčan” which carries the name PTP (recognized traditional denomination) since 2009, along with other great wines of Bizeljsko. The speciality of this wine road are so-called “repnice” - caves dug in flint sand which was brought to this area by the Pannonian Sea millions of years ago. Because of constant temperature at 8° C and permanent humidity at 95 %, they have been used in the past for storing crops, turnip among other which gave them their name (turnip=repa/repnice). Now they are used mostly for wine storage.
