Farms and vineyards

a traditional way of life

One of the delights of the region is the traditional farm building - particularly small wooden barns, raised granaries, pig sties, multiple beehives and hayracks. These are displayed with a traditional house (the birthplace of author Josip Jurčič) at Muljava (see map E). On the wine routes you will see old wine houses where farmers store wine and retreat to sample it .

Today's farmed landscape still looks very traditional with productive strip fields, meadow pastures and vineyards, bordered by woodland. Whilst many people now work in towns and in industry, there is a strong sense of continuity in the countryside and of people who care for and enjoy their land.
