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.
Projects & Practice
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.
Developing a herd management tool to optimise efficiency and animal welfare on dairy farms.
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.
