Food and milking goats - predoi


In village Pirin, an old tradition called ‘Predoi’ is still practised today. When the young of the goats have finished taking milk from their mothers, the owners keep them apart. The villagers then arrange a special milking of their goats outside the village termed a Predoi; usually three time a year. Each goat is milked and the quantity of milk produced (in litres) is used as a factor for calculating how much a particular family is entitled to until the next Predoi. You can come and take part in the milking process and try genuine organic milk and cheese! The Predoi takes place at Santa Troitsa monastery and is only 3.5km from Pirin village.
