THE FARMHOUSE COLLECTION IN LIBELIČE

An interesting permanent exhibition is on display at the restored part of the parish-house barn in Libeliče. The exhibition displays the life of farmers and their work in different seasons in the area of the Libeliče Local Community, Libeliška Gora and Gorče, around the period of the second half of the 19th century to around 1970.

The initiative for setting up the display came from the villagers themselves, wanting to preserve the forgotten objects from their barns, granaries, cellars, and attics. The objects, appearing unusual today, tell stories of the old ways of farm work and the simple country life from the past. The youngest visitors will surely be amused.

Special attention is paid to using grain, as well as the process of making bread from planted seeds. It thus represents the most important values of the farmers' food culture.
