Turkey 칠면조

Turkeys, the alternative source of meat in North Korea. 북한에서는 육류의 대체물로 칠면조가 뜨고 있다.

Turkeys, the alternative source of meat in North Korea. Turkeys are kept by enterprising North Korean farmers as they multiply well and provide food throughout the whole year. In the harsh North Korean winters, their large bodies will offer plenty of meat for the entire village. This rafter of turkeys was seen around Sinanju (신안주). Turkeys are increasingly kept in rural farms across the country. The other popular farm animal is goats because they are hardy, reproduce easily and will practically eat just about anything. Tourists don’t get to eat turkeys as these birds are solely for local consumption. There’s also very little information that exists regarding turkey farming. Over the years, the evolution of government policies have given farmers so much more options to grow and keep what they like.

칠면조는 번식이 잘될 뿐 아니라 1년 내내 고기를 제공해주기 때문이 농부들에게 인기가 많다. 북한의 혹독한 겨울 동안에도 칠면조의 커다란 몸집은 온 마을에 풍족한 고기를 제공해준다.신안주 지역에서 볼수 있는 칠면조 축사는 이렇다. 전국적으로 점점 더 칠면조를 사육하는 추세이다.칠면조 이외에 농촌에서 인기가 있는 가축은 염소인데, 왜냐하면 염소는 질병에 강하고 번식력도 용이할 뿐 아니라, 실제로 아무 것이나 잘 먹고 자라기 때문이다.관광객들은 이 칠면조를 맛보기 힘든데, 안타깝게도 칠면조들은 자국민들에게만 공급된다. 그리고 칠면조 농장에 대한 정보도 지극히 제한적이다.지난 몇년동안 정부의 정책의 변화로 인해 농부들은 원하는 가축을 사육하고 보유할 수 있게 되었다.

While traveling across the countryside, I was able to observe locals panning for gold in one of the rivers. They were swirling pans and using sluice boxes to prospect for the precious metal. That piqued my interest and the following year, I finally got to see a North Korean gold bullion coin minted from the Central Bank of the DPRK.
