Turning a subsistence family farm into a dynamic agri-business through modernization and adoption of affordable new equipment.
Projects & Practice
This project aimed to replace old farming machinery and thus improve the productivity and economic performance of a farm holding.
A small Estonian organic farm used EAFRD funding to scale up its production of herbs by investing in new machinery and upgrading buildings to help the business to grow.
Given that compost for growing oyster mushrooms was not produced in Romania and had to be imported, a group of farmers used EAFRD to build a plant for producing compost using their own wheat straw.
A company producing bread and pastry products used EAFRD support to expand its processing and storage capacity as well as its distribution network.
A Romanian farm specialised in crop production invested in modernisation activities to expand its production capacity. As a result, it created job opportunities for the local Roma community.
