NEWBIE Discussion Circle in Kyustendil

The representatives of Regional livestock association, farmers, new entrants, municipalities, district agricultural offices and team of the Business incubator-Gotse Delchev participated in the discussion circle of #NEWBIE project in Kyustendil, Bulgaria on April 2019. Access to land was the focus of it, in particularly access to municipal land in mountainous area. Problems and challenges discussed: farmers could rent less than 1 ha municipal land only for 1 year by a simple procedure, for up to 10 ha they must participate in an open call, where small mountain farms cannot compete with large ones.
