Projects & Practice
A family farm used support from multiple Rural Development Programme (RDP) measures to ensure the farm’s viability and diversify towards a quality focused and profit-oriented business.
Collaborative learning and tools for assessing soil health contribute to farmers’ understanding of problems and alternative management strategies.
The project has created entirely new operating models to improve the well-being of agricultural entrepreneurs and how they can cope with difficulties.

Switching from manual labour to mechanised work in order to make the business much more cost effective.
Setting up a fruit juice processing plant that operates with renewable energy.
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.
