The local economy (TG): Eugene, tell us about your farm? Why did you decide to farm??

Evgeny Dorogush (Units): A few years ago I bought a plot with a pond near the Anniversary Lake in the Grodno region. There was a desire to restore the pond, old mill, crop, fish farming. Later I decided to do agro, eco-, and historical tourism. The local executive committee helped in choosing the optimal form of organization of their business - the farm "Manor Yubileinaya".

TG: What products do you grow? Did you manage to restore the pond?

Units: On the plot I grow as seedlings, so goji berries, as well as Christmas trees. Goji berries are called juvenile apples.. They have a beneficial effect on the body., help fight insomnia, overweight, chronic fatigue and depression. Homeland of berries – Tibet and the Himalayas, but they adapted to grow in our climate.

We plan to breed trout in the pond.

TG: What support do you need as a farmer??

Units: Farmers are currently prohibited from tourism., agritourism, and also forbidden to build a house on their lands. In this connection, I suppose, that it is necessary to amend the Law of the Republic of Belarus on peasant (farm) household. Together with our other fellow farmers we would like to participate in its public discussion. Regarding financial support, are necessary simple
and affordable lending programs, leasing, by installments.

TG: What are your plans for the future?

Units: Actually, the, what I talked about above – achieve legislative changes, so that farmers are allowed to tourism in their lands and create infrastructure for this.

TG: What would you recommend to novice farmers? What would you like to warn those, who is only at the beginning of the journey?

Units: Self-belief, in your dream, count your strengths and finances.
