EAFRD support enabled a young person to start his own commercially-oriented farm, thus contributing to the generational renewal of the sector.
Projects & Practice
A cooperative focused on quality cheese production, used Rural Development Programme support to expand its facilities and thus ensure the continuous growth of its business.
In an area where the agricultural sector is under pressure due the expansion of a nearby urban centre, the diversification of farming activities e.g. ice-cream production and marketing, can ensure the farm’s sustainability.
The Rural Broadband project is a national intervention to close the digital divide in remote and sparsely populated rural ‘white areas’.
In order to improve the economic performance of his holding, a young farmer received support to increase the cultivated land and to build an irrigated greenhouse for the production of vegetables.
Five districts in the north of Hesse joined forces to provide fast internet access in a region where no privately financed investment was covering the existing digital divide.
