Projects & Practice
An entrepreneur developed an innovative farming model by turning an old farm into a demonstration site where visitors can see and learn about husbandry and endemic game species.
RDP support for young farmers enabled a young entrepreneur to turn his small farm into a viable organic farm which contributes to the protection of the environment while creating new employment opportunities for the local community.
The cost for fossil fuels can be a significant constrain for the operation of a small farm. Reverting into renewable sources of energy such as biomass, can help increase the farm’s competitiveness while protecting the environment.
The Deák family used EAFRD support to convert a farm into a mansion house that provides services based on the old traditional rural way of life while setting up a network of local suppliers.
