Rural Development Programme investment support has boosted the productivity and competitiveness of a family dairy business and helped to safeguard more than 60 jobs.
Projects & Practice
The project saw an unused calves’ shed converted into a farm shop selling organic products.
In response to the changing global markets, a dairy used Rural Development Programme (RDP) support to reorient its production and maintain its export potential.
A company making pork products used RDP support to purchase new equipment that allowed it to increase production capacity and end product quality.
On-farm processing can add value to the product and can also make farming a more attractive choice for young farmers - as demonstrated by a berry farm in Finland.
