During recent years, the popularity of food products produced in Latvia’s organic farms has grown. The customers have also become more interested in visiting farms that offer an insight into organic farming and a unique opportunity to strengthen one’s health and get some rest.

 “Spend a weekend at the organic farm, feed animals, taste herbal teas, enjoy a bathhouse, learn to bake bread and do various other wonderful activities,” encourages the Association of Latvian Organic Agriculture.

Most of the organic farms welcome and accommodate their guests with open arms. City residents will find it interesting to become familiar with life in the countryside and participate in several rural activities – helping farmers bake bread, gather honey and take care of livestock.

“Gain new emotions, as we offer you the opportunity to milk a cow,” point out the owners of “Zemenu krastini” Lodge.

The guests are offered a steam bath in a real countryside bathhouse. The farms also serve meals that are prepared mostly from their own organic products.

Latvian farms are surrounded by picturesque scenery, encouraging guests to make use of the opportunity and observe wild animals and hike on the most beautiful forest trails.
