The balance of the 21st century – work in the city and life in the countryside

This week we visited a small but picturesque property in Irig run by Konstantin Milosevic, a young farmer.

He and his father are small farmers, they have 15 hectares of land, on which he grows wheat, corn and soybeans. As Konstantin says, the yield of wheat here was excellent this year, while corn had a medium yield. He hands over his cereals to the cooperatives in Irig.

This young farmer shared with the Better Land team that one cannot live only from the land they have, and that the average farmer must have about 60 hectares of land to be able to live only from farming. Constantine explained that his life is in balance, he works in the city, and he lives in the countryside, because that is how he must be in the 21st century. As for mechanization, they renewed it in five years and all the machines it uses are domestically produced.

The solution he sees in this problem is for the state to help young farmers who are engaged in farming.

In addition to farming, Konstantin and his father are also engaged in cattle breeding, but he says that the situation in this sector is currently difficult, because the price is bad all year round, and food is expensive.

However, they manage to make the famous Srem ham, bacon and sausage, and they can also boast of their homemade wine.
