An ambitious entrepreneur used business start-up aid for young farmers in order to modernise his farm and create a series of innovative products.
Projects & Practice
A dairy farm combined three RDP supported operations to increase and modernise milk production and secure one full-time job.
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.
The creation of wetlands in the agricultural landscape can contribute in decreasing the leakage of nutrients into water bodies.
This LEADER-funded project created several small wetlands and helped raise awareness of and interest in water protection among landowners. It also contributed to increasing the amount of available water in the island of Gotland.
The cooperative ‘Dobrina’ used LEADER support for awareness raising and capacity building activities in order to promote locally produced high quality fresh food to public schools and attract more producers.
