The Wild Farm in the village of Gorno Pole

The Wild Farm is a non-traditional, organic farm in the village of Gorno Pole, Madzharovo Municipality. The young Vasilievi family, who are the owners, gave up their life in the big city to develop rural tourism in the old family house. Now they are arole model for many other farmers, who also chose this direction. The Wild Farm owns a herd of 400 Rhodopean Shorthorn cattle grazing freely, a small herd of Karakachan sheep and a herd of horses. They grow their own fruits and vegetables at the farm and produce their own dairy products, meat and delicies. They offer accommodation in their new guest house, homemade food, horseback riding, hiking and more. The farm is in  the network of "New Thracian Gold".

 


Todor’s farm in the village of Pelevun

According to Todor the village name means “place for gold mining”, but according to an article in Wikipedia it means “old forest”. The road sign at the entrance of  the village says "Plevun" but you will never hear any of the locals using that name. Everyone calls it Pelevun. For years Todor is engaged in agriculture and vulture feeding at the feeding place south of the village.  He grows sesame, walnuts and almonds. In 2012 he applies for funding from the Program for development of rural areas for overhauling his guest house. Todor also takes care for a herd of karakachan horses in the village of Kostilkovo.
