The ‘Terroir Moselle wine and architecture route’ is a ‘preparatory’ cooperation project gathering six LEADER areas, five wine growing areas from four regions and three countries.
Projects & Practice
An integrated, community focussed model for quality meat production based on short supply chains, working together, and exchanging experiences between consumers and producers.
Switching from manual labour to mechanised work in order to make the business much more cost effective.
Setting up a fruit juice processing plant that operates with renewable energy.
Granting a premium to support viticulture on steep slopes and terraced vineyards as a high-quality farming practice
Ensuring the productivity of a fruit-producing business by replacing low-yield apricot orchards with more reliable plants.
As part of the greater LEADER project ‘Moselle Diversity’ the sub-project ‘World City’ supported the organisation of summer activities for children aged between 7 and 12, including children of refugees, and fostered cultural diversity and the values of ‘living together’.
RDP support for young farmers enabled a young entrepreneur to turn his small farm into a viable organic farm which contributes to the protection of the environment while creating new employment opportunities for the local community.
The cost for fossil fuels can be a significant constrain for the operation of a small farm. Reverting into renewable sources of energy such as biomass, can help increase the farm’s competitiveness while protecting the environment.
