The Soča region is characterized by a centuries-old tradition and the heritage of mountain pastures and cheese-making. The first mentions of the mountain pastures can be found in written sources from the 12th and 13th centuries. They can mostly be found in the hill areas of the Soča Valley, over 1000 meters above sea level. Such mountain pastures are also Stador, Lom, Kuk, and Razor.
In late spring, cows from the valley are taken to the mountain pastures, where they graze until early autumn. Grazing on these spacious pastures provides animals with quality food, full of grass and mountain herbs. This ensures delicious and high-quality milk, from which first-class dairy products are made.
A beautiful wide macadam path leads from the Stador mountain pasture and takes you across all the pastures mentioned above. You can taste cheese and buy fresh, still warm cottage cheese. Razor pasture is also a great starting point for further ascents to the Tolmin-Bohinj mountains.
