Our next stop was at Mirko’s and Sara’s cheesemaking farm in southwest Serbia. We took a mountain road near the Bosnian border to reach Mirko’s farm. This farm, established generations ago by his family, is located on the snowy outskirts of the village. Mirko is a self-trained, young cheesemaker who made many changes to his parents’ dairy farm.
After visiting Serbia’s countryside, we returned to Belgrade’s metropolitan area. Our next stop was at a regenerative garden, 45 minutes north of Belgrade. This garden is run by Demijan, a passionate practitioner of agroecology, who has turned a barren land into a lush peri-urban oasis that attracts visitors of all ages.
