Rural activities have been the only source of earnings for the family for the last 20 years. Currently, they have two cows and four sows. They sell two baby calves a year for a total of $972.5 and around $2,000/year from selling raw milk to the nearby dairy farms. From the sows, they sell about thirty piglets a year for a total of $1250-$1300. They also plant and sell medicinal flowers/plants such as sage and thyme and the earnings from this is about $500/year. In the 11 dynyms of agricultural land that their family owns, they plant mainly corn, wheat and fodder and after the corn and wheat they keep for their own use, the rest is for the animals. Three dynyms from this land they leave as pasture for their animals. Their family receives some monthly social assistance of $47.
