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.
This project is an example of how villagers can get access to high-speed broadband networks even in remote and sparsely populated rural areas. It is the winning initiative of the 2019 Rural Inspiration Awards in the 'Rural Revitalisation' category.
A company producing rye gin and whiskey used RDP support to increase its production capacity to meet the demand of national and international markets.
Switching from manual labour to mechanised work in order to make the business much more cost effective.
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.
Ensuring the productivity of a fruit-producing business by replacing low-yield apricot orchards with more reliable plants.
A fruit and vegetables producing cooperative used RDP support to expand its cold storage capacity in order to better respond to market trends.
