An organic mountain farm uses indigenous breeds to produce high-quality meat, while preserving the local environment and genetic resources.
Projects & Practice
A family farm used RDP support to switch from cattle to turkey breeding in response to market demand.
A farm used RDP support to set up a micro district heating system to produce heating from wood biomass and at the same time expand its leisure and tourism facilities.
A year-round holiday cottage was built on an equestrian farm to accommodate guests. The construction used natural materials such as moss and wood.
A dairy plant in Slovenia used EAFRD support for its modernisation and became a lead producer of high quality milk and cheese in the country.
Natural potential of rural areas often remains unexploited. In Estonia the construction of a water themed park generated interest in the countryside and attracted visitors through promoting eco-tourism and environmental education.
