D5.3 Lessons learned from confrontations – Farm diversification at succession

Section title: Farm diversification at succession

Sub-section/paragraph: T5.3 Confrontation report SC1

Highlights: The future of the primary sector is cross-sectoral There are many sectors that are interlinked with and add value to the primary sector, such as tourism. When it comes to businesses whose main source of income is agricultural production, diversification of production is often not enough to make it profitable. However, looking at non-agricultural activities that add value to the business can provide a radical change. Some options are related to experiential tourism (guided tours), outdoor activities (trekking, star gazing, etc.), rural accommodation, gastronomy (tastings and explanations of winemaking processes), art and culture (exhibitions, live music, theatre performances, etc.).
