The Farm Štrucelj is situated in the border area which belongs to the less-favored areas for agricultural production. The farm is included in the program of integrated production. It is engaged in the dairy and breeding heifers for herd overhaul. The main activity on the farm's milk production, the quantity of milk delivered by the farm is among the largest in Bela Krajina. The farm has always been engaged in farming, in 1968 the Štrucelj family decided that they will generate a monthly income exclusively to agricultural activity. Until 1985 they were dealing with fattening pigs, breeding young fattened cattle, growing potatoes and milk production.
In the meantime, the Štrucelj family had a small number of dairy cows, which is why they gradually grew the lease of argicultural land because of the larger amounts of basic feed needed. Ever since the farm Štrucelj has expanded its business, by e.g. building new and bigger barns which now have a milking robot. The Štrucelj family wanted to share their milk with visitors and inhabitants of the region which is why they isntalled "meklomats" in Metlika and Črnomelj so that everbody can enjoy their milk around the clock.
