Oct 2nd Atlantic Farms

David Sweere started up Atlantic farms after moving to the Ukraine in 1985. Atlantic farms started out as a bulk feed mill, but following difficult business conditions caused by the currency devaluation in 1998, they moved into bagged feed. This has proved very successful. They have since moved into cropping and this year have 10000ha in crop, with plans to increase this to 150,000ha over the next two years. They also have a oil extraction plant for extracting oil from their Soybeans.

Main Crops and also the most profitable are Maize & Soybean.
