Eco farm Važec was founded in 1960 and is located in northern Slovakia in a beautiful area in between two national parks – High Tatras (TANAP) and Low Tatras (NAPANT). Parts of both national parks are even found within the area of the eco farm. This is also one of the reasons we are very well familiar with ecological or green farming and from 2005 we are a certified eco farm.
Considering the fact, that the average altitude of our farm land is 1 000 m.a.s.l., we focus mainly on cattle and sheep farming. We care for more than 1 000 cattle and 1 000 sheep on more than 2 000 acres in the spirit of ecological farming and BIO quality is our main philosophy in our own production of cheese, bryndza (traditional Slovak sheep cheese) and other dairy products from cow’s and sheep’s milk as well.
