On-farm processing can add value to the product and can also make farming a more attractive choice for young farmers - as demonstrated by a berry farm in Finland.
Projects & Practice
Punkalaidun municipality conducted a feasibility study for setting up a biogas plant producing energy from manure, which resulted in an investment decision.
The cooperative ‘Dobrina’ used LEADER support for awareness raising and capacity building activities in order to promote locally produced high quality fresh food to public schools and attract more producers.
In a rural area without public sewage system, a LEADER project helped the local population to get familiar with the new environmental standards, legislation and requirements on wastewater treatment. It also enabled them to make informed decisions on which wastewater treatment technology to use.
