To view the Daugava River from a different perspective, visit the Liepkalni bakery, which offers tours in a Viking longboat that is called “Lāčplēsis” and can carry up to 24 people.  The Daugava has always been an important transport corridor for many species and animals that arrived in Latvia because of that, as well as for people and tribes that lived along the banks of the Daugava River and the shores of the Baltic Sea.

History
Our production differs from others of a kind. It underlays on Mendziņu family bread baking traditions, wich has more than 80 years old history. Bakery ”Liepkalni” has inherited these valuable traditions and keeps to improve and apply them succesfully.
Bread baking has been usual activity in every farm-stead, not ecxeptional also in Liepkalni farm, where in former times thorough worker named Jānis Mendziņš had been managing a household. He owned this great, well-cultivated farm ”Liepkalni”, established in year of 1928. Fields were sowed with rye and wheat, and the house were surrounded by lime-trees.

Farmer Mendziņš sheltered and kept the unique aura of his farm-stead until 1970. He was a mentor and inspiration for other farm-keepers. The time went by, social systems changed and collective farms destroyed farm ”Liepkalni” as well as other farms. The soil and country-sides kept it’s nature power, waiting for right time and good hands.

It was the beggining of 90-ies when Dagnis, a grand-soon of farmer Mendziņš, retrieved back the land of ”Liepkalni”, however the farm-stead no longer existed. The only thing lef on the land were piles of rocks, loaded up by grandfather as the boundary-marks. Dagnis felt very deep belonging to his ancestors and set-up a goal to sustain family roots. He showed dignity to inherited land and soon the intensity of dream to grow a harvest there allowed it to come true.

In 1993, when the first rye and wheat harvest were threshed out, new farmer took up baking bread for his family and surrounding districts. He did all the work himself- prepared a dough, formed a loafs and baked delicious and substantial bread. First batch had to be strong and solid, therefore rye-flour was used and black-bread were backed- the most latvian and substantial, produced only here, in Latvia. In process of baking, Dagnis used all the masterstrokes left in his grandmother notes. Recipes were improved and supplemented in the course of time.
