Thanks to a project financed by the Bulgarian Development Assistance programme, some of the most popular Italian cheeses, ricotta and pecorino, will be produced in a small Jordanian village, said the Bulgarian Embassy in Jordan in a Facebook post.
On Thursday, September 22, Ambassador Dimitar Mihailov and representatives of the Embassy of the Republic of Bulgaria in Jordan visited the Adir village in the region of Karak and reported the results and development of the activities under a project, entitled "Strengthening the primary sector in the rural areas of Karak".
The project is carried out jointly with the Habibi Valtiberina Association (HAVA).
So far, all the basic equipment for the farm has been financed, the land has been leased, construction materials have been purchased and a metal fence has been constructed. The next step will be gathering milk from the sheep at the farm. The project aims to provide work for many people in the village and help them acquire skills that will make them competitive in the job market. The production of milk and milk products will contribute to the development of the primary sector of the country's economy, the post also noted.
