Our farm Zizma is officially registred on November 13th, 1991. At the beginning as all the farmers in Zemgale, especially the farmers of Mezotne, we worked in the sugar-beet cultivation sector.

Then we were accidentally introduced with latvian origin Canadian sweet corn breeder Eduards Petersons. Thanks to him as well as thanks to the renovator of Mezotnes palace my late father-in-law Egons Fridrihsons and recently reestablished Latvian 4-H club organization , at the spring of 1993 we started the cultivation of sweet corn.

For the first four years me together with my children – 4-H club members Martins and Anna we performed a research on different types of sweet corn and feed corn.

Starting from 1997, we worked on development of new species and hybrids. Starting from 1998, we could supply ourselves with self-produced seeds of sweet corn.

We sell the finished cobs ourselves for several years. Now it is done by our authorized person in the Riga central market. Every buyer, when buying sweet corn for the first time, receives several recipes for its preparation .

In regard of cultivation and selecting sweet corn I’ve been interviewed by " Mazpulks", "Lauku Avize", "Bauskas Dzive", "Cas", "Vestji", "Panorama Latvii", as well by "Praktiskais Latvietis" and "Mazdarzins".

My occupation wasn’t unrevaled by the experts of LTV game „Mini mani”. I’ve taken part multiple times in radioshow of Karlis Streips "Vards tiek dots Jums", informed the listeners of cutting-edge approaches of cultivating and selecting sweet corn.

Site history

I created a website for my farm in 2004.

I use Microsoft FrontPage and a little code to create it. Unfortunately, the website was not adapted for mobile devices. At the time, I myself only had a key mobile phone, where websites could not be opened.

Looking for an opportunity to make money, at the turn of 2020/2021 I learned the basic principles of website creation, using both the code-free page creation tool https://tilda.cc/ and using coding in HTML5, CSS and JS environment. Therefore, there is a clear desire to make your website more friendly to mobile phones and tablets. I have created it in codes and placed it on a server in Latvia very profitably.

I have currently created a landing page for cruise lovers https://laimeskruizi.com in Latvian, Russian and English. A landing page https://annasflowerstudio.com for a florist in the UK has been launched. Now I can be useful for You too.
