During Soviet Era there were a lot of collective farms. Most of Russian state food input at that time was coming from them. Some of them were very successful and large and were called “millionaires”. Like for example this collective farm which according to Soviets statistics and memories of the locals was one of the most important and successful in the region. It produced tons of grain and meat, veggies, milk and everything else farm can get in this climes. Now it is all abandoned and destroyed. Please take a look.
Thanks to Russian blogger Celeste who travelled there we can see what it looks like now.
There is a small village near the once large farm.
Some wooden houses here are over hundred years old.
Beside the village there are abandoned collective farm buildings.
These fields once were full of crops.
And now nothing useful grows here.
Hope you liked it and thanks to Celeste for the photos!
