Urška Tourist Farm

 

A farm bursting with life

Amazing dishes that combine homegrown ingredients from the fields, flower garden, and herbal garden, with the creativity of the cooks, Vilma and Urška. Recipes passed down by grandmothers, with a modern twist.

Urška Tourist Farm has received the highest awards, and was the first tourist farm in Slovenia to get the EU Ecolabel certificate, so it’s not a surprise that it is also one of the first holders of the Slovenia Green Cuisine label. They grow and make most of the ingredients at their organic farm, and are very particular about all their equipment, which is why every dish is served on plates that are handmade by local artisans. Their guests can also enjoy unique experiences like sleeping in the hayrack, stargazing, picking eggs from the hen-house, visiting the neighbouring farm, helping to bake bread, or learning how to make felt.

Organic homegrown food

In the beautiful natural environment of the organic farm, Urška brings the guests beautifully and creatively plated dishes full of homegrown ingredients. Their specialties are dishes with edible flowers. The flower soup, probably their most photographed dish, completely changes colour as the seasons change from spring to autumn. In spring it is decorated with primroses, daisies and violets, in summer with roses, marigolds, lavender, and in autumn the roses and marigolds are joined by nasturtiums and cornflowers and other flowers. The colour of their flower butter also changes with the seasons. Other flower-themed dishes on their menu are gnocchi with pot marigold sauce, dandelion jam cake, rose jam, which goes perfectly with beef, and lavender syrup.

Have you ever heard of ognjišna potica or čveček soup? These two dishes are prepared by the cook, Vilma, following the recipes of her grandmothers. Ognjišna potica, or fireplace potica, looks more like prleška gibanica than a typical potica. It got its name because it is made in the fire in the bread oven. And čveček soup is a plum soup, as plums are called čvečeks in the local dialect. It is very thick, and served as a dessert at the Urška Tourist Farm.

Who creates your meal

From an office to the kitchen

Love for cooking and good food led Vilma to leave a life in an apartment building and an office job, and start writing the successful and delicious story of Tourist farm Urška.

While Vilma does most of the cooking, everyone contributes to the food preparation. Urška is the one who most often helps her mother with her creativity in the kitchen, while her husband Jernej takes care of their excellent meat products, wine, and vegetables from the fields.

Vilma’s greatest pleasure is creating new recipes, sometimes just because she feels like something new, and sometimes because nature leads her to do so. When their lavender was damaged by hail, she quickly turned it into lavender syrup, which they make and serve to their guests every year since.
