THE BOGATA ESTATE BOVEC

ORGANIC ESTATE WITH DAIRY COWS

As in the past, Mlekarna Planika Kobarid is still acquiring a significant share of milk today on its own organic Bogata estate in Bovec. Our organically certified estate in Bovec is important for the production of organic milk for our organic local products from Soča valley. The work of Mlekarna Planika is based on the millennia-old tradition of dairy and cheese making in the Soča Valley, where livestock could always be seen on pastures. We are convinced that without the love of animals, the mountains here, the valley, and without respect for the tradition of our ancestors, our activities could not be performed as well as we and the farmers here do.

 

SEEING THE ANIMALS GRAZING

The property is located in the immediate vicinity of Bovec, a 5-minute walk in the direction of the Soča River. On the property, you can spend the day in the company of animals. You can see cows and other pets grazing, which can be a very interesting experience for many. Here you can relax or simply enjoy the beautiful nature overlooking the animals and the surrounding Julian Alps. The most prominent of them is the Svinjak peak, which some call the Slovenian Matterhorn.

REST AREAS, POSSIBILITY TO PURCHASE PRODUCTS OF MLEKARNA PLANIKA

In a special room, equipped especially for visitors, you can see and find some information about the millennial tradition of cheese making in the valley, the operation of Mlekarna Planika, organic products, and the Soča Valley. In 2018, we have refurbished the Bogata estate for visitors. It is also possible to buy products from Mlekarna Planika and Salamerija Alpija from Tolmin.

ORGANIC LOCALLY PRODUCED FOOD

Our Organic milk 3.5% milk fat, Organic yogurt, Organic yogurt with hemp oil, and Organic cheese are made of organic non-homogenized milk, which is produced on the Bogata estate in Bovec. Milk is produced according to strict organic criteria, which undoubtedly influence the excellent taste and quality of the finished product. Today, Mlekarna Planika is positioned on not only domestic, but also world markets. By displaying the tradition on which we are based upon, we are also becoming a direct promoter of local life, local food, and our beautiful Soča Valley.
