The farm «Jaun-Ieviņas» is located in Rauna municipality (Vidzeme). Its owners manage 102 ha of land. Gauja National Park and nature reserve Raunas Staburags lay nearby. «Jaun-Ieviņas» is the organic farm that has a diversified production. The main areas of its business are tourism, poultry farming, apiculture (beekeeping), charcoal production, growing and processing of quinces (fruits of Cydonia oblonga), growing of vegetables and crops and rearing of the beef cattle. This was one of the first farms in Latvia, which initiated natural pasturing of the cattle that both served as a tourist attraction and also formed the agricultural landscape. Their horses are not afraid of the people and allow a closer-look. In the farm, it is possible to see also less known cattle breeds, for instance, Hungarian Steppe Cattle. The farm owners are proud of their collection of poultry breeds and species. Most of poultry range freely within the farm territory. One can find different species and breeds of poultry here, including lively turkeys and geese, “bearded” chickens, ducks, graceful doves and even swans. There are 11 breeds of chicken alone in the farm.
Some of the products are processed directly in the farm and therefore the clients can purchase various goodies made from a quince, dried broad beans, herbal teas, an additives-free ice cream etc. One can buy also honey, vegetables, eggs produced by free-range chickens and other clearly biological products. The valley of the River Līčupe serves as the main biological corridor within the farm territory. The most valuable forest and meadow habitats are concentrated on the river banks. A narrow belt of hydrophilous tall herb fringe communities extends along the sinuous river. Fast-flowing river stretches interchange with steep river banks; in some places beavers have built their lodges. The presence of the trout is the best certificate of the natural and clean environment. The river banks are covered by an old spruce and aspen forest. These large trees as well as a dead-wood create an appropriate shelter for insects and birds, including Eurasian Three-toed Woodpecker and White-backed Woodpecker.
