Goat and cow cheeses from Pod Strážným vrchem Farm Merboltice
Homemade, handmade organic goat and cow cheeses made on the farm.
Home-made cheeses from goat and cow milk are handmade by Mrs. Jindra Šancová in her cheese factory, which is part of her farm. The building is a former farmhouse, it is a cultural monument and one of the main buildings of the Merboltice conservation area.
All cheeses are 100% organic.
They are characterised by their high fat content and deliciousness thanks to the processing of milk from our own Jersey cows. Their milk has a high fat content (up to 7%) and contains beta-carotene, which, together with the fat content, influences its colour. The milk is beautifully yellow.
All products of the "buckets" type are hand processed, so called "pulled" into other forms - Twine, Rings, Jadely, Parenica. Other products include fresh cheeses, gervé, yoghurt, butter and much more.
Fresh goat cheese
They are produced in various flavours of their own herbs or garlic, and in the form of jervé or Balkan-type cheeses.
The cows are milked by hand, the goats are also milked part of the season.
