‘Nos Oignons’ is an association that supported the preparation and implementation of three RDP funded projects that promote social farming in Wallonia.
Projects & Practice

A family business, with a long-standing tradition of producing denim clothing, used support from the LEADER measure to establish a modern workshop and increase its share in domestic and international markets.
Modernisation of a cannery with new machinery leading to improved competitiveness and a stronger local short supply chain.
Developing a herd management tool to optimise efficiency and animal welfare on dairy farms.
This project created free outdoor recreational infrastructure for a range of age groups and motivated them to take up physical activity through workshops and presentations.
A family farm used RDP support to switch from cattle to turkey breeding in response to market demand.
Bringing together public authorities, research institutes and farmers to explore low carbon emission production models in agriculture.
RDP support helped a young entrepreneur to acquire the necessary equipment in order to start his own wood construction business in an area of high unemployment.
A slaughterhouse was established on the island of Bornholm to offer slaughtering facilities to small husbandry farms or for larger herds of sheep or cattle.
