CAP funds enabled an organic goats milk farm to enhance its market orientation by establishing a cheese production dairy.
Projects & Practice
CAP funds finance dairy development and product diversification in Poland.
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 cooperative focused on quality cheese production, used Rural Development Programme support to expand its facilities and thus ensure the continuous growth of its business.
In an area where the agricultural sector is under pressure due the expansion of a nearby urban centre, the diversification of farming activities e.g. ice-cream production and marketing, can ensure the farm’s sustainability.
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.
