The little village of Kukeč lies in the municipality of Gornji Petrovci in the far north-east of Slovenia, inside the Goričko Nature Park. Only a few houses in the village are occupied and there are several recently built weekend cottages. Fortunately, the "weekenders" have joined in willingly and actively in the life of the village. The most notable characteristic of the village are the numerous orchards that are a feature of this part of the Goričko region. Most of the orchards belong to the Cifer family, who run a fruit business, although the other inhabitants of the village also have fruit trees producing both new and old varieties of fruit. The village has a volunteer fire brigade and a very active women's group, the successor to the former rural women's group.
