'UKRAINIAN LAND IS A PARADISE CREATED BY GOD', A FARMER FROM INDIA
Raoh Sibmasiva from India has been living in Rivne village (Volyn oblast) for a year.
He successfully develops multi-vector farming: cultivates blueberries, raises ostriches, ducks, geese and pheasants.
The farm’s leading direction is blueberries cultivation, 'Last year the British consumed blueberries for GBP 4.6 billion, Americans also buy a lot of blueberries. Ukrainian land is a paradise created by God. Here I bred 14 varieties of blueberries. I managed to create breeding laboratory in 1.5 month and spent about $7000 for it'.
The farmer also raises ostriches (African, American ostrich and Australian Emu) and plans to raise ducks, geese, quails and pheasants.
Mr.Sibmasiva plans to alfalfa between blueberries rows that will help to fight weeds, enrich soil with azote and provide food for cattle, the third farm vector. The farmer has already brought 600 sheep (German, French and English breeds) and shortly he plans to import 1700 more sheep. It is not a coincidence to choose a sheep because in India 1.5 billion people don’t eat beef and pork, thus the demand for lamb is very high.
Developing his farm Mr.Sibmasiva also cares about nature: recently he released 370 wild ducks and 128 pheasants and asks local hunters not to kill these birds until they multiply enough.
