I am John Kopiski, a Russian Farmer

The Russian dairy farm with a British twist

Get short URL

A self-confessed workaholic, Englishman John Kopiski has worked hard his whole life. First, as a steel trader, and now, as a Russian dairy farmer. A proud cheese-maker and owner of a riding school, not to mention a hotel, which is a recent addition after he decided to delve into agritourism. John lives in a converted “kolhoz” or cowshed with his wife and 5 children, and is a staunch supporter of Vladimir Putin, while supplying Muscovites with artisanal cheeses like “Red October” and “Tovarishch”, which means 'comrade'.
