We are a small family family that started from scratch. With bare hands we built the initial buildings, with a loan we bought an agricultural mechanization and land. All our animals live a free life, without confinement, go where they want and do what they want.
We are engaged in goat breeding (French Alpina) and we have gathered a small herd of goats from various parts of Croatia. Considering that we love animals extremely, some of our goats are 12 years old, which we saved from slaughter due to their age and inability to reproduce. Our younger goats give extremely tasty and healthy milk due to the free (natural) way of keeping. We also have horses of the Croatian trotter breed that are used for recreation mostly for children, they are especially talented and show exceptional love for children. One of our little horses adopted after being run over by a car, and now he has given us all his heart. We are extremely happy when we can make the children happy and allow them to socialize with the horses.
In addition, we have about 60 chickens that also live a free and happy life. They graze grass carelessly because they know that in our farm all animals die exclusively from old age, and for every animal in case of any disease the best veterinarians are hired. We examine each of our pregnant goats with an ultrasound so that we can monitor their health at any time. What we are missing is a canopy that would be used to store animal feed, mechanization, grain silos, cereals and various animal needs (and to put a few more animals inside the canopy :)). Unfortunately, no matter how hard we fight, everyone in a similar situation knows that there is no economic calculus nowadays. Especially since we are happy to welcome our visitors free of charge, and free breeding and providing maximum comfort it is quite expensive for animals. We finance everything from regular work, and we spend almost every earned money on our animals. Unfortunately, I suddenly became semi-mobile and awaitng difficult spine operation, so I will be on sick leave for about a year. Given all the above, we will not be able to prepare because of the reduced income until next winter required object. We are expecting baby goats soon (about thirty of them), Angus cattle and black Slavonian pigs are coming to us. Since we have nowhere to store food, we have to buy it at retail and pay very expensive. All our animals live on 4 hectares of pasture, free, go where they want and when they want, have winter heated drinkers, and all possible care and nursing. Since we are constantly adopting discarded animals and buying animals that are not breeding (sterile, etc.) in order to save them from the slaughterhouse, we must be ready for next winter. That is, buy food when it is the cheapest, and not individually during the winter when it is most expensive. To fully finish our ranch we need it
275000 HRK - production, delivery and installation of a metal canopy 25X20 m
22500 HRK - construction of the foundation for the canopy and for the silo 16930 HRK - supply of two PVC silos for cereals
12500 HRK - supply of planks for fencing the canopy (so that the horses do not scatter the bales :))
= 326,930.00 HRK total
