    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Cutting and collecting grass for the cows. We avoid as much as possible to buy grass, because it is grown with chemicals. We do not feed our cows cereals because cows have difficulty to digest them. We feed our cows what they are meant to eat: grass.

    Take care of the cows while grazing. We give to our cows the possibility to graze as much as possible. Sometimes we bring our cows for grazing outside our farm. Because there are houses and roads with cars running nearby, we can not leave the cows unattended. So we need someone to look after them while grazing.

    Construction of fences. We need to complete fencing at the borders of the farm so that people, dogs and other animals that can possible harm the cows do not enter. We also need to build internal fences to protect the crops from the cows and we need also to improve fencing around the well and the pond for safety reasons.

    Also you'll learn farming of:
    1) Goats
    2) Rabbits
    3) Chicken

    Also you can learn:
    1) Distillation of Chacha (Georgian Vodka)

    The goal of this project is to care for a small herd of indigenous cows, (Georgian breed), Goats, Chicken, Rabbits - in Tbilisi (Capital of Georgia).

    We also use cow urine and dung in agriculture. We apply natural, organic farming. We do not use any additional vitamins in the food.
    We hope that one day, we will be able to share clean, healthy food with others, but for the moment our production is small and we try to make the land fertile.
