Local authorities congratulated the winners of the contest for the best farmstead among young families and elderly people.
Vologda Region authorities presented the awards to the winners of the region’s contest that was organised with an active support of the local government.
The contest for the best farmstead aims to strenthen families, to share best lessons learned and experience between generations, to transfer knowledge and expertise to younger generations and to make young people interested in farming.
This year, the competition commission received 545 applications. As a result, 52 families from all regions of the Vologda Oblast (young families and elderly residents' families) reached the final.
Addressing the winners and participants of the contest, the local authorities thanked them for their work, for their love for the countryside and promotion of agriculture and development of rural economy. The countryside is the home and centre of activity of the people who live there. It is very important that the farmers remain competitive and adapt their activities in line with changing market needs.
