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
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 conservation tillage equipment (subsoilers and no till seeding machine) to enhance soil quality, reduce pollution and maximise their soil’s capacity to act as a carbon sink
A small family forestry business used RDP support to acquire new machinery that would enable it to respond to the increasing demand for forest services.
An example of sustainable cultivation of olive trees and extraction of olive oil using innovative ultrasound techniques.
An organic mountain farm uses indigenous breeds to produce high-quality meat, while preserving the local environment and genetic resources.
Granting a premium to support viticulture on steep slopes and terraced vineyards as a high-quality farming practice
A farm used RDP support to set up a micro district heating system to produce heating from wood biomass and at the same time expand its leisure and tourism facilities.
