There is a place on the map of Poland that borders with many magical regions and is hidden among the fields and only the insiders know where it is. Near Morąg, on the border of Warmia, Powiśle, Żuławy and Masuria, in the country once called Oberland is a land flowing with goat milk. We the hosts, Kasia and Grzegorz, are enthusiasts of goats, cheese and the natural chemistry of healthy food. We have a vivid imagination, energy for eco-friendly change and a pretty solid memory. We know all the names of our happy animals. 140 goats, a mare, three dogs, a cat, geese and chickens live in the Złotna Goat Farm.
Our intimate agrotourism offers two rooms, but we also have an eco-farm, where we raise goats, make cheese, meet with clients, youngsters and school children, educate people on how to live closer to nature, and organise tastings. So it’s a place to relax, but also to work and live a normal life. If you need complete silence throughout your stay, you will not find it here, because we live in the countryside so you’ll hear a tractor passing and a dog barking.
In the morning, we enjoy a leisurely breakfast, taste smoked goat cheese, cottage cheese with raspberries, drink apple juice from our orchard, enjoy the herb bundz and crunchy bread with goat ricotta. Then run to the yard to guard the field against a goat invasion, because baby plants stand no chance against the sweet mouths of our goats. Then it’s time to go to the cheese dairy, work in the vegetable garden, tend the goats, cook dinner for guests and prepare the rooms.
That's how it is with us. Sometimes you can go out with the goats for an evening walk, take a bath in the nearby Lake Narie, sit down with guests for dinner together and savour cheese, talk about everything and nothing, and always find time to relax. In the summer, you’ll be among the raspberry bushes, and in autumn, in the orchard, among apples, with fresh yoghurt in hand.
We are waiting for you – for all the conversations, baking bread together, evening bonfires and walks to the meadow in the morning fog. The goats are looking forward to cuddling, dogs to petting and Holka the mare to combing and feeding. We will certainly learn something from each other and inspire each other. The greatest joy for us is when you come back and we can’t wait to meet again and the relationship ‘host-guest’ has long been replaced by the relationship ‘good friends.’
