A family farm converted to organic lavender farming in order to diversify their offer of products and services in an environmentally sustainable way.
Projects & Practice
The project saw an unused calves’ shed converted into a farm shop selling organic products.
A family farm invested in soil conservation practices to increase its capacity to store water and its microbial biomass activity.
A young female farmer invested in the construction of greenhouses and an irrigation system to improve her farm’s profitability and mitigate production risks linked to climate change.
Setting up collaborative water system measures and a governance approach to increase self-sufficiency of freshwater availability for agriculture.
An EIP-AGRI Operational Group project on the use of insects for adding value to organic residues from agriculture.
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 no-till cultivation equipment to enhance soil quality, reduce pollution and maximise their soil’s capacity to act as a carbon sink.
Using biomass residues to produce a fertiliser, which is then used to grow trees, and will, over time, improve soil quality, has led to significant financial savings for nature conservation organisations and tree nurseries.
An eco-farm implementing agri-environment-climate measures aims to foster ecosystem services and climate adaptation on-farm as well as promote wider uptake throughout the farming community.
