From life Jolly milkman Justas Walker came to Russia to embody the American dream. He is still convinced that Russia has tremendous prospects.
The farmer from the USA moved to the Krasnoyarsk region, village Takuchet, married a Russian girl and is quite happy with his life. Jastas deals with dairy products: he makes cheese and yoghurts. Walker is a deeply religious person. He also reads one book a week and speaks perfect Russian!
About national self-determination. “Actually, I grew up in an ordinary American family, in a Western cultural environment. If we say that Russian culture is something yellow, and the American one is something blue, then somewhere in the middle I am green! – laughs Justas. – When I’m lecturing in America, I’m told that I’m wild. And when I read lectures in Russia, they say to me: “Justas, well, you understand, you’re an American!”
About the history of moving and faith. “My parents moved to Russia in 1994. They are Protestant missionaries, they have opened churches to villages. Their goal, as in principle, is mine, to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ where there is no spiritual work at all. I moved to Russia at the age of 11. For me, faith is very important. Farming is faith. Family is faith. Work is also faith. Only faith gives me an answer to the question, why and why we live. ”
About values. “In my life, there are three important things: preaching the gospel, promoting healthy family relationships and farming. I have been doing this all my life and these are my main motivations. Fame for me is the mouthpiece through which I tell about my values. ”
Justas became famous after the video, where he expressed his opinion about sanctions. Because of the popularity of this video, he was dubbed the Merry Milkman, and Walker profitably used this to create his own brand. Dairy products from his farm are produced under the name “Merry Justas”.
Merry Milkman Justas Walker sanctions and a real help to the farmer.
About books. “I read somewhere around 50 books a year. Books choose a variety of subjects. Once a friend asked me to throw off a list of what I read. I dropped the file, which contains all the books that I think should be read to everyone. There’s even a graph of “necessary evil”: a list of books that need to be read, but they are terrible. Suppose, Richard Dawkins “God as an illusion.” It is necessary to read, this is a cultural symbol, although about the absence of God – it is he who drives. ”
About business. “At first I worked in the forest, I had a small sawmill. The goal was simple – to make money. But I always had a subsidiary farm, which for me was like therapy. In 2007, I started farming, because I could not work on the sawmill anymore. After I became famous, they opened their brand “Merry Jastas”, as “Merry Milkman” was already busy.
About the agricultural future of Russia. “Sometimes I look at the situation in Russia and I feel hope for the future, and sometimes I think that everything is lost. It is not yet known how it will be in agriculture. There are really good prospects for an amazing development: the largest reserve of chernozem in the world, the largest reserve of fresh water, the latitude allow you to grow everything you want. Why are we still not in the first place in the production of agricultural products? This is a huge question. In Russia it is dumb to be a farmer, but we are changing this image. ”
About human weaknesses. “People are by nature very lazy. We go with the flow and do not want to change anything. We very often make superficial decisions, but in fact we need to look at the root. You have to change yourself, break your routine. This is difficult primarily for yourself, not to mention the surroundings. I am a very serious person, but also a cheerful person. I think that we should all live consciously, to answer every day to the question “why?”. This is the most important question that we can ask ourselves. ”
A cheerful farmer has his own channel on YouTube, where he talks about his life and shares useful tips with other farmers.
