Khabarovsk resident restores ancient recipes

Hectare: how to arrange an apiary and produce environmentally friendly products

Khabarovsk resident restores ancient recipes
Special project Far East hectare: history
A resident of Khabarovsk Sergey Surovtsev he designed three hectares for himself and combined them into one plot. He is an entrepreneur engaged in beekeeping, and also prepares tea and other drinks from wild herbs. Sergei actively participates in the fairs of Khabarovsk, is going to go to Vladivostok. The wife develops a separate direction - natural cosmetics and household chemicals.

Since March 2017, the number of beekeeping families has more than doubled: from 10 to 26. In 2018, they will be 100, and in 2019, with state support, 200-300. Sergei mounted two rooms on the received land in the village of Kruglikovo - for drying herbs and apiary equipment. He is going to install a third workshop, in which the bees will winter. An apiary on a hectare will become the base. Sergei Surovtsev plans to move to nomadic beekeeping and to transfer beehives to areas with more abundant meadows. This will allow several times to increase the volume of the received valuable product.

For the second consecutive year, the farmer has also been engaged in the production of willow-tea - this year several hundreds of kilograms of this plant have already been harvested. Sergey also gathers other herbs - leaves of lemongrass, wild raspberries, nettles.

"On the basis of the leaves of the nettle, we prepare an experimental drink. It is rich in iron and other useful substances. We "dig out" old recipes, taste drinks and see what effect they have on the body, "- said Sergei Surovtsev. He also collects birch sap and has already established the production of honey kvass with medicinal herbs.

With great enthusiasm, the farmer talks about the direction his wife is engaged in - the production of natural cosmetics. It is based on the principle that "it is impossible to apply to the skin what can not be eaten". The range of products is already very wide: toothpaste, powder, lip liner, face creams, ointment "Rescuer" from various skin damages, preparations for sunbathing and care after the sun, from mosquitoes, for washing and dishwashing in a typewriter. Everything is only natural and with a short shelf life. Sergei even had his favorite.

"I personally won the shampoo, now I use it only. After it, the hair is not soiled for a long time, you can wash it only once a week, which affects positively on the appearance, "the farmer is surprised.

Over time, Sergei Surovtsev wants to build a small complex in the forest zone for eco-tourism. In small houses, vacationers will be able to restore vitality and take a course of healing, which will include the use of propolis and healing bee stings.
