Garden to table

Slovenia is a land of gardens. Nearly every Slovenian has at least a vegetable and herb garden whether they live in the countryside or in a town or city. Home-grown food tastes richer, and top chefs are well aware of this as they join the garden to table movement. See for yourself - try homemade delicacies. Ecological farms, farmer’s markets, ecological shops and agricultural shops across Slovenia offer not only fresh vegetables and fruit, but also other homemade products and home-grown produce.

An authentic taste at tourist farms

If you want to taste authentic Slovenian flavours, visit one of the countless tourist and visitor farms. Pluck juicy fruit right from the tree, taste some vegetables straight from the garden, enjoy a nice cup of fresh milk, sample meat delicacies and indulge in the freshly-baked brick oven bread that the hospitable locals will provide for you. Local winemakers will also be happy to pour you a glass of the local wine.

The milky way

Have a glass of fresh milk from Slovenian farms even in urban centres. Locally produced milk and dairy products can be bought in special milk vending machines whenever you want.
