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.
EAFRD support enabled a young person to start his own commercially-oriented farm, thus contributing to the generational renewal of the sector.
A rural women’s association used Rural Development Programme (RDP) support to organise wool processing training courses and to create employment opportunities by valorising wool, a by-product of sheep meat production.
A new culinary concept for a restaurant which gives diners a clear view of the farm’s cattle barn helping them discover the linkages between food and farming.
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.
Targeted advice on climate mitigation actions for individual farms provides farmers with consultant support to effectively reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Knowledge exchange network established to foster multi-actor collaboration and sharing around organic agriculture.
An eco-farm implementing agri-environment-climate measures aims to foster ecosystem services and climate adaptation on-farm as well as promote wider uptake throughout the farming community.
