AgroSkandia was established in 2006 by a group of Danish farmers who acquired a community farm, ZAO Kuibushevskoe, in the Babushkino village. One of the investment companies acquired the farm in the beginning of 2015. Later in 2015 the community farm, Yasnaya Polyana, was acquired. The farming community, Yasnaya Polyana, was established in 1945 with the purpose of continuing the agricultural business of the former national stud of the Trakehner breed, Trakehnen, which by 1945 was the world’s largest national stud. The main building is owned and preserved by a German union for the preservation of Trakehnen.
