Frequently asked questions

Who is behind this website?

Greenpeace developed this site based on input from farmers around Europe. We’re happy for new partners to join and improve it further.
All material on this site is covered by copyright. Please contact us if you’d like permission to reproduce it.

What is the FarmErasmus programme?

FarmErasmus is a visit programme designed to allow farmers to spend a bit of time on a ‘host farm’ where they can study a particular aspect of ecological farming in practice.
All the host farms have been checked by Greenpeace to ensure they meet good professional standards.
Six visits to farms in Belgium, Bulgaria, Greece and France (the sources of our case studies) were offered in late 2016, but the application period for these has now closed. If you’d like to be notified when new visits are available, please complete our online subscription form.

Can I become a host farm?

We’d be more than happy to add new host farms in the future. If you’re interested in becoming a future host, please get in touch with your national Greenpeace office to discuss which aspects of ecological farming you can demonstrate and how much time you can make available.

Can I visit a host farm?

If you are a farmer – please subscribe here and your national Greenpeace office will get back to you shortly.

What do the case studies cover?

The case studies represent examples of ecological farming collected by Greenpeace from European farmers committed to environmentally-friendly practice.

Each case study contains:
• contact details for the farmer or group of farmers
• a brief description of the farm or group of farms (such as size, production, date of establishment, size of workforce)
• technical and financial information

The case studies are classified by topic to make it easier to find what you’re looking for. They can all be downloaded.

Can I suggest a new case study and/or topic?

Yes – please contact your local Greenpeace office or provide it via this link.
We’ll run your idea past subject experts and get back to you with any questions before we publish.
