A dairy family farm in Sweden invested in a biogas powered generator and a storage facility for substrates in order to become self-sufficient through the use of green energy.
Projects & Practice
A family farm invested in soil conservation practices to increase its capacity to store water and its microbial biomass activity.
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.
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.
A diversified farm with a carpentry workshop, used RDP support to acquire a telescopic handler in order to improve its productivity.
Support from the rural development programme was used to buy new machinery and expand the production capacity of a biogas plant.
An example of a large-scale previously state owned farm, which now successfully combines economic sustainability and the provision of public goods.
Using RDP support to implement a sustainable model of agriculture that combines the production of high quality products and environmental protection. Winning initiative of the 2019 Rural Inspiration Awards in the 'Environment & Climate Action' category.
