Vitaly’s and his wife Elena’s business idea with was born in the Netherlands, when they were visiting a family farm that was dealing with blueberries. It was the first time when Vitaly and his wife tried blueberries and saw how it grows, and immediately they realized that this is the berry they want to grow too. Vitaly registered a farm and began to purchase equipment and seedlings, develop the soil, and select workers. Vitaly says: “The emotions were very different, we can even say that they were contradictory. From “how great it is to have your own business! “to” Oh, what a mess we are in!”.
We started working with local loafers, but we should have worked with specialists. But we were in no hurry to cover everything at once, and it was the right thing to do.
We were developing by learning. We have traveled and studied abroad a lot – it is important to see the development prospects, this is the basis of business. At first, we lacked knowledge and skills in business management, cultivation technologies, and marketing. We consulted with experts and searched for the necessary information on the Internet. And everything worked out!”. Now Vitaly’s farm has a certificate of organic farming. The farm grows blueberries, honeysuckle, cranberries, vegetables, herbs, and breeds laying hens.
Products are delivered to major retail chains and markets. “We work hard to achieve the highest quality products and all customers come back to us. We consider this our success “, says Vitaly.
