Traditional Cheese Making

A visit to a traditional shepherds Stana makes a perfect day out. Take a trip back in time and spend a day walking in the meadows of Tarnava Mare, see the sheep being milked

It is the ideal place to enjoy a traditional Saxon picnic while the cheese is made for you to sample. If you wish, you can travel to the stana by horse and cart. You can combine the visit with a day out discovering other crafts people and cultural sites.

This will be a memorable part of your holiday learning about a traditional way of life that co-exists with nature. This type of sheep cheese production in Transylvania is a tradition that
has remained unchanged for hundreds of years and is intimately linked with village society, local customs and the maintenance of the spectacular flowery grasslands of the area.
