New Greenhouse with Environmental Technology (Hällnäs Plant Nursery)


The use of EAFRD support for the modernisation of agricultural holdings to build a new greenhouse (supplied with renewable energy sources) and introduce new cultivation systems for growing herbs and lettuces in pots.



Pots with lettuce and herbs are grown in an environmentally-friendly way at “Hällnäs Handelsträdgård”, a plant nursery in Västerbotten county in Sweden. The company produces an extensive of organic herbs and salads which are sold as private label products to the ICA, a large Swedish grocery, and as a private-label for Hällnäs Handelsträdgård.


The primary objective of the EAFRD co-financed investment was the construction of a new 25 x 100m greenhouse together with a heating system fuelled by wood chips.
