Just a few kilometers away from Chisinau, Mihail and Ludmila Croitoru together with their three children and their families set up a successful farming business, growing vegetables in protected soil.
The members of the Petrov family from Puhaceni village, Anenii Noi rayon work side by side to develop their farming business. The father and his three sons manage about 18 hectares of farmland. They grow potatoes and cabbage in open field on 15 hectares and tomatoes, eggplants and peppers in greenhouses stretching on 3 hectares.
For Dorin Jardetki, a 29-year old man born in Varnita, Anenii Noi rayon, farming is more than a business; it is a lifestyle. He confesses it captivated him in his early childhood when he used to help his father work the fields after school. He chose to study horticulture at the State Agrarian University of Moldova and the decision about the profession he was going to embrace was not a difficult one.
