Sheep Breeding Country Tour of Slovakia

Sheep Breeding Country Tour of Slovakia, Slovakia Travel, Location Welcome in "LAZY-KOPANICE-SAMOTA" the places of history of Slovak nation.

Many people lived in small villages or lone cottages in the mountains (which are called LAZY-KOPANICE-SAMOTA) in the past. These places were usually very poor. People used to plant corn, potatoes, beans for themselves and for their cattle - sheep, cows, horses, pigs. Old people mostly died and their descendants moved to towns or big villages. All we can find now is peaceful place with feeling of history and hard work and life there. As our grandparents lived there we would like to show this place where old people were working. Socialistic life changed minding of the people but place is still the same.

In present time we use this place for sheep breeding farming in the summer. It's hard job because after 20 years of missing any agriculture, the area is very overgrown. We want to give the life back to the place where modern age doesn't make any sense.

We will visit the sheep farm. We will see sheep milking (you can try). Shepherd will do this handy as in the past. Handy sheep milking is the best method for sheep farming still used in Slovakia.

You will never forget tasting:
