Food producers

Bread bakers, pastry makers, manufacturers of homemade cheese, meat products, sausages and other treats. These facilities offer high-quality food that is produced in small volumes and is, therefore, not sold at supermarkets.

  • The offer is very diverse, ranging from large farms and companies to small and individual ones.
  • Tours of a manufacturing facility or farm usually end with product tastings and purchases.
  • Farms often produce raw materials such as milk, as well as secondary products such as soured milk, buttermilk, cheese and yogurt.
  • Many farms operate in various sectors – dairy products, vegetables, berries, fruit or animal products. The sectors supplement one another, and so the farms are more interesting to visitors, because the offer of tastings and purchases is very diverse, indeed.
