My husband and I were lucky to spend an afternoon with Ník on his family farm. We were given a tour of the lovely, sprawling farm with an impressive array of plants and animals. The views from the farm are gorgeous, with a wonderful view on the valley. We then worked with Ník and his family to cook a delicious, nutritious, fresh meal. Everyone was very welcoming and kind, and it was a wonderful way to learn about the region and cuisine. We highly recommend and are thankful for the time and care everyone took.
