So they are only an option if you are a larger or more commercially orientated operator. EU agricultural assistance is designed to support professional farmers and encourage those more marginal operators to leave the industry. Thus although there might be some money around if you have say 100+ hives, any less than that and you are likely to struggle. Go to www.eufunds.bg and look and the rural development OP where you will find everything you need to know, in English.

Ahhh, thats the catch then, you have to "pay to play".....I know from my years in Turkey, from friends that worked in construction until they went back to being farmers, and there were indeed grants being thrust upon people.
The fees/costs of obtaining the grants far outweighed the grant itself but you only found that out a good way in to your application, people then abandoned their claims and the fees paid to the "fix it" companies were not refundable!!
