Why Fur Farming Matters

Fur Farming in Ukraine has a rich heritage. It began during the USSR and until 1996 there was about 40 farms which supplied 1,200,000 skins per year. After the collapse of the USSR, the number of farms declined to only about five-eight in 2008. Since then, there has been investment into the construction of new modern farms.

Today, there are 37 registered fur farms, however, there are only 10 operational farms, 6 out of which are modern that produce about 800,000 skins per year. All the latter farms sell through the global auction houses. The industry is dynamic with opportunities to open new farms providing jobs and economic value to Ukraine.
