In re­cent years, eco­tourism and agro­tourism have been de­vel­op­ing rapidly in the Khiva, Khaz­arasp, Ur­gench, Ba­gat dis­tricts, along the Amudarya coast. The di­ver­si­fied farm “Shar­i­fom Sho­h­ja­hon” of the Ba­gat district spe­cial­izes in poul­try farm­ing. Since year Septem­ber, the farm has been im­ple­ment­ing projects in agro­tourism as an ex­per­i­ment.

“In Septem­ber 2017, a to­tal of 12 os­triches were brought from a fam­ily en­ter­prise in the Ferghana re­gion and an agro­tourism zone was or­ga­nized,” says the chief of the farm Il­hom Vafoev. “To­day, more and more lo­cal and for­eign tourists come here to see these unique birds. Os­triches are adapted to a hot cli­mate, so the nat­u­ral con­di­tions of our coun­try are suit­able for their liv­ing and breed­ing. These are her­biv­o­rous birds, we feed them with al­falfa and other suit­able feeds. Os­triches for 3-4 years gain 120-150 kilo­grams in weight.”

Rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the re­gional hokimiyat also vis­ited the farmer and got ac­quainted with his pro­ject, ren­dered prac­ti­cal as­sis­tance in al­lo­cat­ing two hectares of area. In this ter­ri­tory it is planned to build spe­cial premises for os­triches’ main­te­nance, to grow fod­der crops. In the farm, where now, in ad­di­tion to os­triches, quail and tur­keys are grown, they plan to fur­ther di­ver­sify the species of birds they nur­ture.
