Setting up a slaughterhouse on-site helped the beneficiary and other nearby organic lamb breeders to increase their profitability through direct marketing.
Projects & Practice
A young farmer received RDP support to build stone wall terraces, helping him to improve the farm’s productivity, while protecting its soil from erosion.
The project saw an unused calves’ shed converted into a farm shop selling organic products.
A cooperative focused on quality cheese production, used Rural Development Programme support to expand its facilities and thus ensure the continuous growth of its business.
In an area where the agricultural sector is under pressure due the expansion of a nearby urban centre, the diversification of farming activities e.g. ice-cream production and marketing, can ensure the farm’s sustainability.
A company making pork products used RDP support to purchase new equipment that allowed it to increase production capacity and end product quality.
