Family farms are not only the production of quality and healthy products but also an opportunity to revive the villages of Ukraine, to give young people the opportunity to stay at home and run their own businesses.

 

Unfortunately, on many farms, part of the work is done by hand.

 

Some of them do lack not much at all: a tractor, a feed mixer, etc.

 

For one family, these are things that are hard to come by, and if at least a few hundred people from all over the world donate $10-50, any need can be covered.


This site provides a unique opportunity to help a specific Ukrainian farming family raise funds to purchase the things they desperately need today in order to produce even more farm products tomorrow.

Even small funds of $10-50 from many people will be a significant help to one farming family

Questions and answers

How to make sure that the collected funds will be used according to the intended purpose?

Below each farm family card, there is a scale that allows you to track fundraising progress. Upon receipt of the required amount, the product will be purchased, and we will post a photo or video report on this site. In addition, anyone willing can visit any farm to personally make sure that the funds have been used as intended.

How does a farmer earn?

Dairies are ready to pay, firstly, for the quality of milk, and secondly, for its quantity in one place. Therefore, the farmer has to keep at least 10 cows so that the milk trucks can reach him. In addition, the farmer must keep cows according to modern technologies that ensure the quality of milk is not lower than the 1st grade. Modern milking systems, lighting, ventilation, balanced feed - all this must be provided by the farmer in order to get milk that is ready to buy dairies.

What will happen if the family does not have time to collect the required amount by the specified date?

In this case, depending on the specific situation, we can go one of several ways:

  • purchase other urgently needed goods for the needs of this farm, the cost of which is within the collected amount;
  • if the amount to complete the collection is very small, for example, 1,000 hryvnias, the project will help cover the shortage with its own resources (from the funds of the families themselves, a loan, or with the assistance of the project);
  • collected funds for those farms that did not have time to collect the required amount will be redirected to the SMF, which has the least amount until the collection is completed.

In any case, we will provide a photo/video report indicating the amount collected for each family, the value of what was purchased, and the sources of additional financing.

Who will choose and where will they buy what they need?

Consultation and selection of equipment are carried out by relevant specialists of the "Family Dairy Farms" project, which is the initiator of the creation of this resource. Veterinarians, zootechnicians, and agricultural engineers search for the most appropriate equipment, machinery, cows, etc., which are suitable for the characteristics and price category. The product will be purchased from the most accessible point/dealer/distributor taking into account price, quality, and logistics.
