In the late 19th Century, the development of agriculture in Baranja has caused the disappearance of the surface for grazing of cattle and horses. Abandoned areas have become an ideal place for the development of invasive plant species.
Around the 350 acres of organic pasture in Kopački rit (Podunavlje), the company Belje opened the center for sustainable agricultural production “In harmony with nature”. Excellent symbiosis of economic activity and the environment, organic and biological production with an emphasis on protecting the environment, reducing pollution of soil, air and water and maintain the biological balance.
Visitors can learn about the appearance and characteristics of the local breed of Slavonia – syrmian podolian cattle and Hereford cattle. Both breeds are very resistant to low temperatures and can live outdoors all year round.
