About Salaš Pastierska
The determination to keep the traditions alive and to make healthy and fresh milk products is the driving force of PPS Bobrovec, a company operating in the field of mountain farming, shepherding and sheep and cow breeding, which all have had a long tradition in Liptov. „When you come to the farm at four o’clock in the morning, everybody is already up by then. The sheep are in the pen and the guys are milking them so that we can have fresh milk, cheese or žinčica (boiled sheep whey),“ says Milan Gajan, the owner of Salaš Pastierka.
