OSTRICH FARMING in BULGARIA OUR TRIP TO AN OSTRICH FARM IN SOUTHERN BULGARIATHE RHODOPES OSTRICH FARMShare
A day out visit to the local Ostrich farm, where we were introduced to these fantastic and very cute characters.
The owner of this ostrich farm patiently told us about his Ostrich, how he came to set up the farm and soon he would be bringing his horses there as a second tourist activity, to hack in the superb hills of Southern Bulgaria.
The farm had a small cafe with some Ostrich souvenirs, Ostrich eggs, Ostrich feathers ostrich leather and photos to buy
Do Ostrich Bite?
You can also buy Ostrich meat and other products produced by this very big bird! He was telling us that ostrich farming is not easy. Lots of ostrich farms have failed, however, this ostrich farm was superbly located in the Smolyan region of southern Bulgaria the Rhodope mountains and was in a sheltered hillside location and this ostrich farmer was very successfully rearing ostrich. His ostrich produced many ostrich eggs. Ostrich eggs cost around about 50 leva each, so this ostrich farmer was very happy to be able to have so many eggs for sale! Selling the ostrich eggs helps him reinvest in his farm equipment and for housing the ostrich safely. We didn’t see any young ostrich on our visit, but these huge birds grow very quickly and do have quite a bite too! The little shop had ostrich souvenirs which we could buy, ostrich feathers, ostrich leather, even an ostrich egg to buy, but at 50 leva we gave that a miss! Ostrich meat was also on offer and we were given the chance to try some. These ostrich are not an easy animal to handle! I have heard that ostrich meat is very tasty, howevers, again on this visit to the farm, we gave it a miss! I have yet to try Ostrich meat and after seeing this motley crew, I doubt if i will ever eat their meat, I may just buy a feather and some of the egg shells that were also for sale instead! If you’ve ever wondered if Ostrich bite, the answer is yes! One love bite from a cute Bulgarian Ostrich
