A European Innovation Partnership (EIP) Operational Group was set up to ensure the viability and continuation of the traditional farming method for hay fed milk and meat production.
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.
A dairy farm combined three RDP supported operations to increase and modernise milk production and secure one full-time job.
A cooperative of apple producers set up a joint effort among its members to control the codling moth, a major pest, by means of sexual confusion.
