Italian farmers join forces in new organics value chain.
Projects & Practice
A producer of organic arable crops used investment support from the Hungarian Rural Development Programme (RDP) to build an innovative storage facility and increase the competitiveness of his farm.
Rural Development Programme investment support has boosted the productivity and competitiveness of a family dairy business and helped to safeguard more than 60 jobs.
A family business focused on Sorghum cultivation used EAFRD support to set up their own mill and now supply high quality, gluten free Sorghum flour to the Hungarian market.
The project saw an unused calves’ shed converted into a farm shop selling organic products.
A dairy company used RDP support to build a new wing on its factory in order to increase its production capacity. This investment strengthened the local supply chains and helps prevent the abandonment of the farming activity in the area.
Maintaining natural and semi-natural meadows and wetlands to ensure suitable nesting conditions for an endangered bird species: the Aquatic Warbler.
Setting up a fruit juice processing plant that operates with renewable energy.
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.
