I've been researching whether or not the Kulak (old Russian term for small farm in the northern region) can still work. My brother demonstrated, season after season, that even in cold, rainy summers, the Kulak can supply the farmer and at least six other families with a large assortment of fresh organic vegetables and potatoes. The Kulak is very efficient for what it can do, unlike the large collective farms which waste so much produce in transit, and take expensive machinery to harvest the crop. In the northern region, the Kulak produces local foods full of nutrients, without causing obesity in its consumers. Together with subsistence fishing and hunting, raising some poultry, pork, and local dairy, and berry picking, the northern region can be largely self-sustainable.
