A family farm converted to organic lavender farming in order to diversify their offer of products and services in an environmentally sustainable way.
Projects & Practice
A family farm invested in soil conservation practices to increase its capacity to store water and its microbial biomass activity.
The project took nature-friendly vine cultivation on a family farm a step further to develop zero-waste processing methods that valorise all by-products of grapes in a sustainable and fully circular way. The resulting seeds, oil and flour have proved very popular with customers.
Organic and biodynamic farms cooperate to jointly acquire no-till cultivation equipment to enhance soil quality, reduce pollution and maximise their soil’s capacity to act as a carbon sink.
Protecting and promoting traditional vegetables can lead to increased incomes for farmers and environmental benefits for society.
A cork producing business confronted high production costs due to increasing cost of raw materials. To tackle this the company used EAFRD support to restore its own forest and improve its productivity.
