A young farmer created a new business model that combines organic farming and environmental protection with job creation and socially inclusive educational services.
Projects & Practice
A family farm converted to organic lavender farming in order to diversify their offer of products and services in an environmentally sustainable way.
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 conservation tillage equipment (subsoilers and no till seeding machine) to enhance soil quality, reduce pollution and maximise their soil’s capacity to act as a carbon sink
