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.
Projects & Practice
Organic and biodynamic farms cooperate to jointly acquire no-till cultivation equipment to enhance soil quality, reduce pollution and maximise their soil’s capacity to act as a carbon sink.
Collaborative learning and tools for assessing soil health contribute to farmers’ understanding of problems and alternative management strategies.
A small family forestry business used RDP support to acquire new machinery that would enable it to respond to the increasing demand for forest services.
A start-up business in Finland used RDP financing to carry out a feasibility study which helped lower the risks in upscaling their production capacity of biocomposites.
