This moose farm is the only established producer of moose milk in Russia at the moment. The farm is situated near the capital of the oblast and attracts the attention of the local community, tourists, scientists, and businessmen from Russian and other countries.
Ever since its founding, the farm has been a practice ground to study the domestication, breeding, and utilization of moose and their biological characteristics. Such studies would not be possible in the wild.
The farm allows people to watch the life of moose in conditions similar to those found in nature. Here humans have managed to domesticate these forest giants, who are not scared to make contact with visitors. On the contrary, they love when the guests give them carrots and in exchange allow visitors to caress them on the back.
Every grownup moose carries on it a transmitter to facilitate their location in the woods. At the end of spring, one can watch newborn moose. The employees of the farm carefully hand-feed the babies.
At the Sumarokovo Moose farm you can enjoy the nature and the animals as well as try moose milk, which cures various diseases and illnesses.
