At the end of 2017, Airbnb joined forces with « Bienvenue à la ferme », France’s leading direct sales and farm reception network. The goal? Supporting farmers in their agri-tourism projects like lodging, tasting local products, or discovering agricultural trades and rural areas.
With the support of MiiMOSA, a major player in crowdfunding for agriculture, we launched a call for projects on October 15th, 2017.
Two months later, we’ve already had more than one hundred applications. Among them, projects as varied as the construction of a dome under the stars in Ariège, building a guest house in the heart of a vineyard in Savoie or a snail farm in the Doubs.
Ten projects will be selected by Bienvenue à la ferme and Airbnb France and will be backed to accelerate their development. So don’t wait any longer and support one of the projects before February 15th!
Here is how the winners will be rewarded:
- 💶 Financial assistance. Airbnb will grant them financial assistance of up to €5,000 per project.
- 🤝 A personalised accompaniment. Bienvenue à la ferme will accompany the laureates with its local advisers of the Chambers of Agriculture in the implementation of their hosting project, and will grant them a discount on membership in the brand.
Airbnb will announce the winners on 1 March 2018 at it’s stand at the Paris International Agriculture Show, in the presence of participants and partners of this programme.
