CAP funds improve the climate resilience of a family farm’s organic fruit and nut products in the Slovenian alps.
Projects & Practice
CAP funds for a young farmer support rural revitalisation in the Slovenian mountains
Investing in cutting edge production techniques (hydroponics in pots) allowed a farmer to fill a gap in the market increasing the availability of vegetables in winter, with minimal environmental impact.
Setting up a slaughterhouse on-site helped the beneficiary and other nearby organic lamb breeders to increase their profitability through direct marketing.
A young farmer created a new business model that combines organic farming and environmental protection with job creation and socially inclusive educational services.
A family farm converted to organic lavender farming in order to diversify their offer of products and services in an environmentally sustainable way.
A young female farmer invested in the construction of greenhouses and an irrigation system to improve her farm’s profitability and mitigate production risks linked to climate change.
Organic and biodynamic farms cooperate to jointly acquire conservation tillage equipment (subsoilers and no till seeding machine) to enhance soil quality, reduce pollution and maximise their soil’s capacity to act as a carbon sink
The Organic farming measure in the Austrian Rural Development Programme (RDP) helps preserve and enhance biodiversity; establish nutrient cycles on farms and reduce input, while also increasing soil fertility.
A subsistence farm used RDP support in order to become commercially viable by investing in organic production.
