Land exchange program Latvia

August 11th 2016

Vacation time is over and we are looking forward to an eventful fall!

During this spring we launched a new service for land owners in Latvia. The core idea is to help land owners consolidate their land by trading properties for properties or through regular sales. Even though we are still at an early stage about 55 000 hectares of forest and agriculture land have already signed up for the service. This fall we will continue to develop the program and start the real challenge – helping the participants to consolidate their land and increase effectivity.

If you want to join the program or have any questions, feel free to contact us at Karl Danielsson Farm & Forest.
