A family farm invested in soil conservation practices to increase its capacity to store water and its microbial biomass activity.
Projects & Practice
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.
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.
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.
An agricultural cooperative invested in setting up organic apple orchards with anti-hail nets. They also acquired agricultural machinery to support the production of organic beef.
An example of sustainable cultivation of olive trees and extraction of olive oil using innovative ultrasound techniques.
A project set out to renovate and expand an old dairy farm by using new technological solutions.
An old abandoned farm through three separate investments was turned into an orchard with hail protection nets and a building to store the produce and equipment.
A small Estonian organic farm used EAFRD funding to scale up its production of herbs by investing in new machinery and upgrading buildings to help the business to grow.
EAFRD investment support was used for the construction of the new cowshed for dairy cows. This helped increase milk production along with improved animal wellfare.
