History

After WWII the government in Poland established many farms. Farmstar Polska, based in Żelazno was one of these. During it’s many transformations the farm has included a small amount of animal husbandry including pigs, cows and sheep. It was also, for a while, a breeding facility for polish potato varieties as well as sugar beet, wheat, rye, and oats.

Since then Land Agency took back 450 ha to sell it to local farmers. Farmstar purchased 500 ha in 2011 and for the remaining 350 ha has a rental agreement until 2025.
