Support from the Swedish Rural Development Programme helped improve accessibility for visitors in a restored municipal nature reserve.
EAFRD support enabled a young person to start his own commercially-oriented farm, thus contributing to the generational renewal of the sector.
A young entrepreneur received LEADER support to buy modern veterinary equipment that enabled her to provide farmers and pet owners with high-quality services.
A rural women’s association used Rural Development Programme (RDP) support to organise wool processing training courses and to create employment opportunities by valorising wool, a by-product of sheep meat production.
A new culinary concept for a restaurant which gives diners a clear view of the farm’s cattle barn helping them discover the linkages between food and farming.
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.
