Since 1985, the homestead’s owner, Marijona Striaukienė, and her daughter, Jurgita, have cultivated the culinary heritage traditions inherited from Marijona’s mother-in-law and Jurgita’s grandmother S. Striaukienė, the teacher, folk artist and author of books about the Samogitian culinary heritage J. Uginčienė and the women of the local area. They take great pride in traditional kastinys, which they serve to the homestead’s guests and present at tourism exhibitions in Lithuania and abroad. Kastinys is made from homemade cream and homemade soured milk. By tradition, it is flavoured with salt, caraway seeds and/or garlic, and is eaten together with hot potatoes, having been dunked into hemp. Other traditional Samogitian dishes certified as national heritage products
are also produced at the homestead. In 2014, the homestead competed in the contest “Lietuvaitės šeimininkės” and took first place. The homestead has been providing accommodation and other tourism services for 15 years, organising educational programmes, at which various Samogitian and Lithuanian dishes are presented.
