Projects & Practice
An initiative to promote young farmers participation entrepreneurship and innovation
for sustainable rural areas
A group of young agronomists combined RDP support with innovative financial solutions like crowdfunding to develop a self-sufficient farm growing local, quality organic products.
A young female farmer used RDP support to develop a farm business that would provide her with sufficient income in order to become a full time farmer.
A small group of young farmers started an initiative of collecting and sharing low tech on farm solutions, which then evolved into an digital open platform for disseminating innovations.
Farmers in France’s Auvergne region used EAFRD support to preserve peatland and wet meadows in two Natura 2000 areas where over a hundred farmers raise cattle.
