About Kumparička farm
Good people. Good vibes. Good things.
What we do?
Stancija Kumparička is a family owned farm where we produce goat cheese of the highest quality. Our 250 goats graze on 200 hectares of ecologically clean pastures full of aromatic herbs on the east coast of the Istrian peninsula, between Mutvoran and Krnica. The farm was originally built in the 14th century and has been completely restored.
Let’s Meet & Eat
Our products made from unpasteurised milk include yoghurt, curd and whey, fresh lactic cheeses, semi-firm cheeses and caramel. They can be purchased at the farm or in our shop at the Pula main market. Alternatively, we can send them to you directly by mail.
During the warmer seasons we’d love to have you at our konoba Primitiva, a restaurant/tavern run by us, for sunset views of the farm and an authentic meal, consisting of our cheese, vegetables from our garden and if you’re lucky some delicious goat stew. The menu is fixed, but don’t worry we will take good care of you.
Our guiding principle is a profound respect for nature and our goal is to promote genuine gastronomic tastes.
With a previous reservation we’ll open our doors for you year-round, for dinners, gastronomic events and cheese-making courses. Being at the farm allows you to learn more about the actual cheese-making process, and see it through your own eyes, from the milking, to the maturation of cheese.
Our life principle is profound respect for nature and our goal is to promote genuine gastronomic tastes.
An array of top-quality, locally and worldwide have acknowledged the excellence of our products and have included them in their menus. We pride ourselves in using what the nature gifts us to the best of our abilities, while loving our animals and taking joy and pleasure in what we do. These values are shared by all of us who live and work at the farm.

Aleš Winkler, former lawyer and owner of a real estate agency in Ljubljana, his wife Saša, a psychiatrist, and their two young children in 2008 moved to the Kumparička area, previously restored according to the Dean Peteh’s architectural project.
Today, years later, the happy family Winkler believes that the radical change in life was quite justified: Saša has her office while also working across the border in Koper, daughter Tita studies back in her hometown and son Bor attending a school in Krnica with only eighty pupils and Aleš who passionately devoted himself to goats and gained status as one of the best and most prominent producers of goat cheese in Croatia.
