Kamchatka farmer arranges a green zone in the forest

Hectare: How to diversify the existing economy

Kamchatka farmer arranges a green zone in the forest
Special project Far East hectare: history
Farmer Ilya Semihatka has a rich experience in the development of Kamchatka land. New hectares are planning to use for business diversification

Ilya Semihatka heads a peasant farm in the village of Razdolny: it grows vegetables and fruits. Last year, Semihatka's family took five acres next to their field. On the received hectares they plan to develop a new direction for themselves - tourism.

Ilya Semihatka, a lawyer by education, treats the land with responsibility and respect. He moved to Kamchatka more than 30 years ago and has since been engaged in agriculture. The field on which the farmer and his family worked for many years was chosen thoroughly. As a result, a long lease was taken fertile land area of ​​18 hectares. On this site the family grows potatoes, cabbage, carrots, beets, greens, in greenhouses - cucumbers and tomatoes. In the warm summer, berries and fruits are also harvested - pears, plums, apples, cherries. It is difficult to engage in agriculture in Kamchatka, but it is possible.

"Kamchatka is a zone of risky farming, because the winter is long, cold, summer is short and not always warm, the vegetative period in plants is short. "Maybe" and "somehow" do not pass here, "Ilya Grigorievich shares his experience.

A family of farmers sells vegetables in Elizovo and Petropavlovsk, although often the wholesalers themselves come to the Semihatka field for the goods. Still, there is no year for a year, and Ilya Semihatka decided to tackle one more thing, not connected with agriculture. The families selected "hectares" in advance and carefully thought out how the new lands would be used. The demand for land in the Elizovo district, which is part of the territory of advanced development, was very high. As a result, Ilya Grigorievich received five hectares. At first, he did not disclose his plans, so that the idea was not increased by competitors. After some time Semihatka said: the plots are in the forest, and he plans to break the park there, put up houses for tourists and build a dining room. As a result, a full recreation area should appear.

"We have here what to see and what to do yourself: horseback riding, snowmobile and quad biking trips, there is a traditional camp nearby (you can see the life of indigenous people) and thermal springs. And if someone wants, maybe in the beds with a carrot to visit, "- argues the farmer.

The development of a new project requires investment. According to Ilya Semikhatki, it will take at least five million rubles. However, the complexity of the entrepreneur does not stop, he is firmly convinced that the plans conceived will come to fruition.
