Welcome to the Ukrainian Dairy farm Zoloti Luky (Golden Meadows).
In 2006 the three partners Vadym Rekunenko, Hans Ryter and Thomas Graf started setting up a dairy farm in Ukraine.
Our goal is a sustainable and long-term profitable dairy production. We therefore choose good fresh fodder during the vegetation period, high quality fodder during winter period and breed a healthy, long-living cow herd. An important success key is our estimated and reliable staff.
Zoloti Luky is located in the village Parijvka near the town Illintsi in the Vinnytsa region, about 220 km southwest of Kiyv. We cultivate around 300 ha and feed actually around 250 dairy cows and 200 calves and heifers.
In 2015 we started the construction of a small milk processing unit on the farm site. From 2016 our production was running on an experimental level until 2018. Since 2018 the dairy is officially certified and we are producing regularly our own natural and healthy dairy products. Actually we are working on our branding and we are improving the packaging of our products accordingly. Our products are not only available in our region, but since 2018 also in the district capital Vinnytsa and since autumn 2021 even in Kyiv. In 2020 we decided to expand our production capacity though the installation of a semi-automated pasteurization and homogenization unit. The delivery of this unit was delayed due to Covid-restrictions, but in February 2022 the installation finally started and we hope to go in production by the end of this year.
The website will be soon replaced updated and inform future consumers about our products, animal welfare and the used food ingredients.
