Projects & Practice
EAFRD support enabled a young person to start his own commercially-oriented farm, thus contributing to the generational renewal of the sector.
A rural women’s association used Rural Development Programme (RDP) support to organise wool processing training courses and to create employment opportunities by valorising wool, a by-product of sheep meat production.
The project took nature-friendly vine cultivation on a family farm a step further to develop zero-waste processing methods that valorise all by-products of grapes in a sustainable and fully circular way. The resulting seeds, oil and flour have proved very popular with customers.
A subsistence farm used RDP support in order to become commercially viable by investing in organic production.
A young farmer used RDP support to expand and diversify the range of products and services offered by her beekeeping holding.
An ambitious entrepreneur used business start-up aid for young farmers in order to modernise his farm and create a series of innovative products.
