Getting up every day at 5 a.m. to report to work in Warsaw at 8 a.m. Then returning home at 8.00 p.m. How long can this last for? There were the questions asked by Ania, who started her career in Warsaw every setting off in Wólka Dłużewska. One day she decided to change her professional life by 180 degrees – and this is how the Dolina Bobrów Agritourism Farm was created.
Here, Ania also gets up every morning, to pick fresh salads for breakfast for tourists. We visited her in the middle of summer. The crops in the home garden ripen. There are broad beans, lettuce and cucumbers. We have asked our hostess about the possibility to taste local delicacies, and she has invited us to the old cottage, where her grandparents lived, where today is a living open – air museum of local traditions. There she showed us the curd cheese that she prepared the day before during the workshop together with the holidaymakers. In the window of the hut there are clay pots with pickle cucumbers from Ania’s garden. Here it is great! – we said. Mrs Ania replied that it would be great if we still had fresh bread (points out to the large tiled kitchen stove), and butter made on the spot (in a wooden butter dish, that lies in the corner of the hut). And we have realized that the place is a small, culinary paradise in Mazovia.
We have never thought that dumplings could be filled with groats – and pearl barley. Inside, you can also find sauerkraut with groats. The dumplings are called jays and we could make them for the first time during the culinary workshop at the Bobrowa Zagroda. Next we do them several times a year.Ania and Tomek from Garwolin.
Our kids spent the best vacations here. Peace and quiet, nature and healthy, real food. We would not like to change this holiday for anything.Mr. and Mrs. Janek from Gliwice.
Ania Michalak carefully cultivates the culture of her grandparents and great – grandparents. In the original wooden house of Mrs. Ania’s ancestors, we can see looms, folk costumes, kitchen and household appliances from years ago. At the Dolina Borbrów farm you can learn about the Kołbiel culture. This region is a place of exceptionally rich folklore: cut – outs, characteristic fold costumes and wooden architecture typical of this area.
