Sergey's story

Sergey has been a farmer since 1997. His agricultural business started with growing vegetables in a greenhouse on his 10 sotkas land plot by his house and sowing cereal crops on 10 hectares of leased land. To ease his work, Sergey decided to purchase mechanized farming equipment, a furrower and a mower for cutting weeds. This equipment will also allow to quickly and with quality treat the soil on the land plot by his house, which expanded to 25 sotkas. Sergey's future plans include growing grapes in a greenhouse, and his personal plans include building a new house. Sergey's unique quality is earning a living through honest work.
