Years passed, and Gienek Onopiuk from the village of Plutycze always arouses great sympathy from the viewers of the Rolnicy.Podlasie program. Fans loved him for his honesty and original sayings. Our journalist was one of the first to visit him shortly after the series began broadcasting. See how he got it and what the farm of the biggest star of Rolnicy.Podlasie at the time looked like.
Thanks to the Farmers.Podlasie program, Gienek Onopiuk’s farm has changed a lot. In recent months, Genik, along with his son Andrzej, has decided to make a number of investments. Genek’s farm is changing, but he has not changed practically. He is still a humble man who takes care of his animals and works hard on the farm.
We did not have time to stop, and a plump old man appeared in the yard – our journalist described the first meeting with Genik. He’s wearing a tattered sweater, a gray blazer, dirty jeans and muddy rubber boots. Because, he says, he wouldn’t wear a tie. This is Cenik Onopyuk from the show “Farmers. Podlasie” followed by his son Andrzej.
Come on, I’ll show you the blue cows. Come on.. are you from the newspaper? Well, it doesn’t bother me, Mr. Jenik laughed
Then he said that he inherited the land from his grandfather and then from his father. In 1972 he left the army. Even served Ukraine. Well, he’s back in the role. “The house is ready,” he says. He keeps 40 cattle, 5 horses, chickens, ducks, geese and turkeys. He also has 50 hectares of land. The famous farmer receives 1,100 PLN in pension every month. And he doesn’t complain.

And I will live to see … – joking.

– Where am I famous – he waves his hand. – But TV viewers often came here. I think that was fine. Because if it was bad for them, for those people on TV, they probably wouldn’t come a second time… – he wonders.
