A small Estonian organic farm used EAFRD funding to scale up its production of herbs by investing in new machinery and upgrading buildings to help the business to grow.
A year-round holiday cottage was built on an equestrian farm to accommodate guests. The construction used natural materials such as moss and wood.
In an area where cattle breeding is predominent, LEADER funding helped explore the potentials of producing biogas from manure produced in the farms.
