The young pig farmer's grandparents were also farmers, and due to her early childhood experience with farming Zsóka Fekete decided to continue the family tradition dedicating her life to animal husbandry.
She started her business at age 26, with the initial help of her parents and EU subsidies.
I participated in a young farmers contest right after finishing university; initially, my mother, who works as a proposal writer helped me applying for EU subsidy - told Zsóka to blikk.hu who received a diploma in food engineering, but has since earned two more degrees.
Later, she bought more pigs, and fell in love with pig farming. Currently, she raises three hundred and fifty mangalicas on her farm.
Mangalica is a very special and clever animal. It has superior sense of hearing, and unique sense of smell, in some cases even better than that of dogs said Zsóka who is extremely proud of her own cultivated blood line.
The young woman does most of the work by herself including breeding, marketing, making sausages and even castrating piglets - time to time her father and two of her colleagues help her with the work.
