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 an innovative lavender distillery in response to increasing market demands for high quality, niche products.
A subsistence farm used RDP support in order to become commercially viable by investing in organic production.
Building a reservoir to catch runoff water and provide protection against floods in a vulnerable area.
A market-driven investment to increase a sheep farm’s competitiveness, through the intensification of high quality organic milk production.
An agricultural cooperative invested in setting up organic apple orchards with anti-hail nets. They also acquired agricultural machinery to support the production of organic beef.
