A family farm invested in soil conservation practices to increase its capacity to store water and its microbial biomass activity.
Projects & Practice
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.
