Andolšek’s granary

Andolšek’s granary

Wooden granary is well over hundred years old. Granaries were of key importance for the existence of a family. A full granary guaranteed security to a farmer.

Granaries were used for storing grain, lard and smoked meats. Oftentimes were meats and eggs buried in grain in order to be preserved. Wooden chests (called “košta”) with many compartments for grain had no lid. Dry meats and sausages were hanged throughout the whole year as long as the granary had a thatch. When the thatch was replaced by a tiled roof decades ago, the granary was no longer convenient for storing dry meats.
