for sustainable rural areas
Using RDP support to establish an agricultural holding, purchase agricultural machinery and launch a young farmer’s career .
In order to improve the economic performance of his holding, a young farmer received support to increase the cultivated land and to build an irrigated greenhouse for the production of vegetables.
This project aimed to replace old farming machinery and thus improve the productivity and economic performance of a farm holding.
A family farm used LEADER support to build a new greenhouse that would provide optimum conditions for growing traditional varieties of Estonian roses.
A series of knowledge-transfer activities to increase knowledge and skills on organic plant and animal production, processing and marketing.
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.
A family-owned strawberry farm in Estonia used EAFRD funding to develop the generation of solar power, enabling the farm to expand and increasing their profits.
Given that compost for growing oyster mushrooms was not produced in Romania and had to be imported, a group of farmers used EAFRD to build a plant for producing compost using their own wheat straw.
