Russian farmers come to visit

October 23, 2006

Terrell County --  Seven Russian farmers are touring South Georgia to learn more about American business and agriculture.  The Russian farming delegation spent Monday morning at Mark's Melon Patch near Sasser.

They're learning about technology and business operations in a free society.   "A lot of people who were in farming they worked for the state. They were not owners. So we have to show them a new culture of being owners, of actually being responsible for the land," said facilitator Irina Thornton.    

The Russian farmers spent last week at the Sunbelt Ag Expo in Moultrie seeing some of the newest agriculture technology.

 For the next week,  they'll tour South Georgia farming operations.
