‘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 dairy farm in Wallonia invested in renewable energy production from manure and produced milk using a more environmental friendly process.
A family-owned strawberry farm in Estonia used EAFRD funding to develop the generation of solar power, enabling the farm to expand and increasing their profits.
A French hazelnut farm used EAFRD support to develop a visitor centre, helping boost direct sales and educate citizens on hazelnut production and processing.
LEADER support was used to exploit the potential of using large quantities of waste wood from landscape management as a renewable energy source.
In an area where cattle breeding is predominent, LEADER funding helped explore the potentials of producing biogas from manure produced in the farms.
Setting up a briquette production plant that uses wood dust and energetic willow, shows how a region's natural resources can be used for energy production in an environmentally friendly way.
