Challenges in sustainable agriculture of Croatian small-scale farmers

Protection of small family farms (OPG) and encouraging young farmers is one of the main objective of agricultural policy in Croatia. Still agricultural sector in Croatia suffers a negative image of being unprofitable and undermined.

There are many new innovative and small farmers who manage to develop their agricultural activities through Rural Development Programme and a very hard work. Being a small scale-farmer is an opportunity, but it also very demanding. We visited 2 small-scale farms and spoke with, Mario Krog, producer of diary products from Northern part of Croatia, and Sandi Chiavalon, producer of olive oil from the famous region of Istria in Southwestern part of Croatia. They spoke about their success, but also challenges to keep their farms alive in the following video feature.
