It was at the end of 19th century when our family ancestors among other farmers decided to invite a Swiss cheese maker expert into the valley to teach them how to make a proper high quality full fat hard cheese. The nature was intact, mountain water springs full of clear water and alpine meadows packed with cattle. The milk was so good you could only fail to make the best of it. Or work hard and make the best product as it become a renowned Tolminc cheese made only in the Soca Valley.
Today our family is working intensively to excel in diary product production focusing on traditional ripened cheese making responsible for great and distinct flavour, specific taste and full cheese body with eyes. Using traditional process techniques and non industrialized processes our cellars are full of up to two years old wheels of Ruta® cheese. The parmesan form of Tolminc full fat hard cheese made in Soca Valley alpine meadows.
To taste and experience the Ruta® cheese and other natural products made the best place to do it is visiting the Soca Valley itself. Our family runs high class holiday houses settled in Tolmin area, the central part of the valley with vast sights visiting possibilities. Beside cheese making the valley is famous for wine production in its lower part and for sports activities abundance from fishing, hunting, rivers sports, biking and mountain biking, paragliding, hiking, climbing and sign seeing all the way down to the Adriatic sea.

On 1500 metres above the sea on a pasture shielded by the Alpine peaks to the north and the endless views to the south. Views all the way down to Adriatic sea. Unbelievable but true - in the early morning when everything gets started - the views down to Piran, Istria and the Italian flatland almost down to Venice, fill the spirit with overwhelming joy and power.
