Using the Agri-environment-climate Measure to support the preservation of the Hungarian Coldblood horse breed.
Projects & Practice
An organic cattle breeding farm is working to reverse the degradation of environmental conditions on the farm, whilst ensuring its long-term economic sustainability.
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.
Using Rural Development Programme (RDP) support to set up modern poplar plantations in response to the increasing demand from industry for high quality raw materials
A small family forestry business used RDP support to acquire new machinery that would enable it to respond to the increasing demand for forest services.
Acquisition of a wood chipper that produces chips for cogeneration more efficiently, thus reducing the cost of tools and consumables per unit of finished product.
