Introduction

Welcome to our webpage!

Hegypásztor Kör was established in 1985 by a group of enthusiastic local adolescents is order to properly document and possibly preserve the old vineyard press house of monument importance in the outskirt of the settlement and to organise cultural events enlivening the life of the village. Lately, the organisation’s range of activities has already widened significantly. The strategy of the Association has been built on event management and rural development, boosting local product manufacturing and organising community events. The Visitors can enjoy the charms of living in the countryside in the vineyard accommodations in traditional environments. The association has already organised basket-work, straw-spinning, fuller and thatching courses, furthermore herbal education and ginger bread making have been added to the course offers.

The association also runs an open air school, where the main focus is on preserving traditions and getting acquainted with the natural environment. Our aim is to contribute to the attractiveness of the small region with raising the regional awareness.
The voluntarism plays an important role in the association’s life. Hegypásztor Kör operates the Volunteer Center of Vas County.
