His own boss
Just like the nature and sheer variety of the work, the Ćalić family rarely rests. Work is carried out only by family members – that is, Lazar, father Aleksa and brother Predrag. “We are a small and close-knit team that does most of the work ourselves, which requires effort, good organization, modern mechanization, many sacrifices and many sleepless hours,” says Lazar and adds, that during peak season, if necessary, other machinists from their area come to help, all with the aim that the work really will be finished in the agreed time. “When I think about it, being a farmer is hard and tiring, but I’m used to it, because I’ve been involved in it since I was young. And despite everything, I wouldn’t trade it for anything,” says the young farmer and owner Lazar Ćalić, who already knew as a child that he would be a farmer. “In our industry, everything depends on dedication and persistence. The right decisions, a set goal, willingness and hard, hard work are important. We work really hard and sometimes it seems that we succeed in doing the impossible,« he adds proudly.
