The population, on ground occupies at present by commune, had busied themselves with trading and fine commerce. The reason of this was not very fertile ground, because the terrain, on which they were forced to live, is numbered among mountain ground. It does not mean, that the farmers do not cultivate the ground. The farmers from most of farms prefer raising milk cattle.
