Young farmer raises Mangalica pigs and produces own products in an integrated farm-to-fork venture
Description

Zsóka Fekete is a young Hungarian farmer who used EAFRD support to start breeding the Hungarian Mangalica pig. Her farm fattens and sells the pigs; it also processes the pig meat into products using traditional recipes (including fresh and smokes sausage, salami, hams) which are marketed at home and abroad. In addition, the farm produces organic vegetables and fruit, as well as crops used to feed the animals.

Results

• The livestock accounts for more than 40 sows and 300 pigs. • The livestock is fed with her own and her father’s organic forage. • The investment has created one additional full-time job.
