You can find Gražina and Arvydas Augus Farm in the beautiful village of Didžiasalis in Leipalingis eldership, next to two lakes, Bilsas Juodajis and Bilsas Baltajis, 10 km from Druskininkai.
The Augus family has worked this land for many generations, so farming is a tradition handed down to each successive generation. 32 hectares is worked by Gražina and Arvydas together with their daughter and her friend. As the family thought about innovations, they came up with the idea of making not only traditional Lithuanian cheese, but also ripened and fermented cheese and cheese made using mould.
After buyers of the cheese expressed interest, the family decided to offer opportunities for visitors to get better acquainted with the way cheese is made. Adults and kids alike enjoy learning about cheese-making. As the assortment of available cheeses widened, the dairyproducts shop “Sūrinė” opened its doors, offering cheese making workshops, too.
