The BBC’s ‘Farming Today’ programme continues a two-part report from a remote rural community in Romania. Both programmes are available to listen to online at the link below.
Farming Today reports from Sinca Noua, where farming practices have remained virtually unchanged for centuries. Romania became a member of the European Community on January 1st 2007, so farmers in the village need to work out how to make the land pay its way without ruining a gloriously unspoiled habitat for animals, plants, insects and birds.
Moira Hickey reports on ambitious plans to encourage eco-tourism in the area, and to create a dependable income for farmers without following the rest of Europe down the road to intensive agriculture.
