Family farms in the Velebit area and its surroundings

Family farms are the prime movers of development in rural areas. Their activities are numerous, ranging from arable and livestock farming to beekeeping or growing traditional cultivars of fruit and vegetables. Beside growing, some family farms also process milk and cheese as well as fruit and vegetables — producing homemade brandies, liqueurs and other sorts of beverages, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic. In this way, family farms enrich the gastronomical and cultural tourist offering in their local area.

By using traditional production methods enhanced through modern expertise and by using natural resources sustainably they help to maintain tradition and cultural heritage as well as biodiversity.

The offering of homemade local products made by family farms in the wider Velebit area has been developing and improving steadily. You can complete your experience in Velebit’s gorgeous natural surroundings — and support the local economy — by buying the quality products of local family farms.
