The project saw an unused calves’ shed converted into a farm shop selling organic products.
Projects & Practice
A pig farm used Rural Development Programme (RDP) funding to improve the animals’ living conditions and the branding of their products.
Investing in facilities that respect animal welfare enabled a meat processing company to improve its profitability while responding to society’s ethical concerns.
A diversified farm with a carpentry workshop, used RDP support to acquire a telescopic handler in order to improve its productivity.
On-farm processing can add value to the product and can also make farming a more attractive choice for young farmers - as demonstrated by a berry farm in Finland.
An integration coordinator was hired to help refugees mostly from Myanmar and Syria with language, housing, education, employment etc issues.
