The Donja Gorica area of Podgorica is one of the fastest developing areas of Podgorica today. That’s all well and fine, but we are fond of the area just a little further north in Beri Village. This pastoral community has a range of family farms and vineyards. As a whole, these farms make for some spectacular settings. And an organic approach to permaculture or multi-speciated farming creates a spectacular opportunity for farm to fork family dinners in Northern Podgorica.
Throughout their adult lives, Dragan and Mikica have dreamed of a return to the village. Once they made that move several years ago, they began developing their multi-speciated farm concept. They now grow a range of vegetables including carrots, beans, leafy greans, peppers, peas, and eggplant. On the fruit side, they harvest strawberries, blueberries, as well as vranac grapes for their own red (or black as the locals call it) wine. They also raise chickens and turkeys for fresh eggs and meat. They also have a range of herbs and aromatics that they grow and forage.
For years Mikica has hosted friends and small groups through her network for a meal with rave reviews. Now they are opening their farm to host travelers for an evening to remember.
Guests will enjoy a range of foods that are prepared with locally sourced ingredients. Options here include a tour-de-force of organic national foods or fusion possibilities with an Italian theme. Of course, these include the freshly baked bread of the day along with other specialties like nettle soup, superb kacamak with roasted meat or vegetables, or fresh made pasta as a base for organic fusion or some other creation of the day. All meals are served family style.
