Swiss entrepreneur starts up beekeeping business in Russia

In 2010 Swiss national Benjamin Forster moved from Zurich to Pereslavl-Zalessky. He fell in love with the local nature and Cossack culture and decided to settle in Pereslavsky District. Now Benjamin has his own beekeeping enterprise. He started out with just 8 hives, but today he has more than 40. Many think that because Benjamin is Swiss he's loaded with cash, making it was easy for him to start a business. However, that is not the case. Having moved to Russia, Benjamin worked from 5 a.m. till midnight — the garden, the bees and the rest of the household chores kept him busy. His hard work paid off, as now he lives happily with his family and tells about his now famous honey enterprise.
