Sale of land plots with the creation of a hay production business in Russia

Our agricultural consulting company offers you to invest in Russian agriculture.
Do you want to have your own stable and promising agricultural business in Russia?
One of the most profitable areas is the production of feed (hay, granulated feed).
This is an easy-to-start and highly profitable business with a wide development potential.

In the Russian Federation, there are regions with a moderate climate and high annual precipitation: Tver Region, Vladimir Region, Ivanovo Region, Yaroslavl Region, Smolensk Region, Novgorod Region.
These are regions with an ideal climate for growing organic feed.
The Vologda region is the best in the production of high-quality butter, the Kostroma region is the best in the production of hard cheeses.
Regions where butter and cheese are produced need high-quality feed to increase the fat content of milk and the quality of the product produced.
The products produced from these regions are in great demand among Russians, these are organic farm products: milk, butter, cream, sour cream, cottage cheese, yogurt and cheese.

In the conditions of climate change on the planet, the reduction of precipitation in some countries, the appearance of spring frosts and the loss of part of the crop in other countries, the depletion of soils, the export of high-quality feed from Russia is a stable and popular business for many years to come.
