A family farm invested in soil conservation practices to increase its capacity to store water and its microbial biomass activity.
Projects & Practice
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.
Natural constraint payments play a key role in supporting farms to sustain their profitability and develop in areas that would otherwise be abandoned.

A family farm invested in a biogas plant to produce renewable energy while also purchasing a new tomato harvester to improve the farm’s overall income.
