IDRIJA GEOfood breakfast – Select local food products of Idrija

In Idrija UNESCO Global Geopark we designed a new product called IDRIJA BREAKFAST consisting of delicacies created by nature and the people of Idrija. Delicious dairy and meat products, honey, and tea are following in the spirit of tradition and local know-how. The Idrija Selected certificate of excellency ensures that these select delicacies are of high quality and locally sourced.
Idrija Breakfast for 2 persons consists of: fruit yoghurt, plain yoghurt, cheese, minced lard,“zašink” (dried pork neck), pressed bacon, herbal tea, honey, butter, bread and seasonal fruit.
The Idrija Breakfast is designed as an additional offer for tourist accommodations, which donot serve their own breakfast. The main purpose of the product is to offer to the guests a crumb of local products and tastes and to encourage them to visit local producers in person: see their farms, stores or experiences they provide.
The tasty Idrija Breakfast can be bought in -online store or in tourist office. It is prepared by Kmetijsko gozdarska zadruga Idrija and can be picked up in their local grocery stores.
The breakfast comes with a gift: a family ticket to the Idrija UNESCO Global Geopark Visitor Centre exhibition Written in Rocks with an audio guide.

Silvij and Blanka claim that bees simply win your heart. If they started their beekeeping business due to circumstance, they cannot imagine a life without bees anymore. They are raising 28 bee colonies that collect various honeys: flower, acacia, chestnut, linden, and forest. Silvij and Blanka received multiple recognitions for their honey and are active in the Idrija Beekeeping Association.

The Zadruga devotes special attention to the quality of goods in their stores. Their “home corners” therefore offer a rich assortment of products and produce sourced in the Idrija region. While fresh beef is of local origin with the Izbrana kakovost (Selected quality) certificate, organic beef is also on offer.
