The first donkey farm appeared on Kamchatka

Hectare: how to make money on Kazakh donkeys

The first donkey farm appeared on Kamchatka
Special project Far East hectare: history

Many people know the Grandmothers' family in Kamchatka and the Far East. A few years ago, farmers did what no one else had done in the local latitudes - they created an ass farm. After the start of the program, the family took two hectares for their farm and started to develop them. Now they breed horses, donkeys and rabbits. In the plans - participation in mass events and riding on donkeys.

The first donkey farm in Kamchatka appeared in the fall of 2014. The first three animals were taken to the peninsula by plane from sunny Kazakhstan. Despite the fears, the donkeys quickly adapted to the new conditions and even brought offspring - on the land of volcanoes the number of "migrants" has already doubled.

"Far Eastern hectare" Tatiana Babushkina was one of the first - she could not ignore such an attractive opportunity for business development. "So many lands have been allocated to my flock at once! I got them quickly. No problems with registration! Nearby is a holiday village. I thought that the summer residents would meet us as enemies, and they were delighted! They say it was painful to look at the vacant land. They helped with the electricity wiring, "says the owner of the farm.

Tatyana is sure that her herd will grow in the coming years. According to calculations, in order for the farm to ensure a stable profit, the animals in the farm should be at least ten. As additional sources of profit Babushkin count on the implementation of donkey milk - on nutritional qualities, it is even more valuable than cow's milk.

However, the donkeys "beat off" a part of the costs today - they roll tourists and local kids. In addition, the long-eared are welcome to participate in local festivities.

Tatyana's initiative for participation in the program was supported also by her son Ilya. On his hectare, designed in the neighborhood, he grows rabbits. Despite the young age - 13 years - the farmer cares for the animals and independently performs all the necessary work.

For the development of hectares Grandma bought a tractor. “The place is swampy. Before the cold it is necessary to lay ditches so that the water is gone. Electricity, water, roads - all these issues will solve. From the state we need only confidence in the future, ”says Tatiana.

In spite of the existing difficulties, the Babushkins family looks to the future with optimism. “The laws are gradually changing in favor of hectares, which means that everything should be good!” Tatiana sums up.
