Two RDP funded projects enabled a company specialised on biomass heating to grow by financing the purchase of mobile wood chipper and later on a pelleting system.
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.
