Magic formulas, magic and ceremonial rituals helped protect the flock and shepherds from disease, evil forces and natural disasters. We were lucky to still experience the outgoing generation of farmers who gradually disappeared from our homeland. They took with them forever the knowledge and habits that had been formed over the years in the sweat of hard work. So we decided to return to the present day at least a piece of the world of our ancestors. Join us on a shepherd's journey through Slovakia –a country set in the heart of Europe. We will be guided by people who have dedicated their lives not only to sheep breeding, but also to the preservation of habits associated with life on Slovak mountain huts, but havemainly lived their lives in harmony with nature.
