This surely deserves to be filed under #OhReally category. Ostrich Nepal has started farming 1000 ostriches in Gangoliya of Rupandehi. If you are wondering what the purpose of this farm is then simples, it is to supply about one tonne of ostrich meat in the market. Aside from the plans to sell ostrich meat internationally the company also plans to sell it’s products to hotels and restaurants within Nepal at approx Nrs 2000 per kg and he defends this price as he states that in the international market ostrich meat is priced at $90 for one kilogram.
Now I’ve never tried ostrich meat nor do I want to but I for sure want to visit this Ostrich Farm is it’s possible! I wonder how they actually got the ostriches to Nepal in the first place. Amazing to see such entrepreneurial ideas! I guess NOW is the TIME.
