Family Broersen, spinach growers, West Friesland, Holland
A very rich family West-Frisian family tradition is behind our company. We are with 4 family members: Jacob, Rien, Louis and Gerard and we know that our family ancestors were growers in 1589 around our village Grootbroek. So we have more than 400 years experience !
We are specialised in the growing of spinach and cauliflower. The Westfrisian claysoil are very suitable for growing quality vegetables. Its results in strong healthy plants which can be grown with limited amount of fertiliser and crop protection.
We are growing from April till Oktober on our lands. Approximately 4 weeks after sowing our spinach seeds we can harvest a fresh product. Directly after harvesting fresh water is sprinkled on the spinach crop in order to keep the product fresh and crunchy. The fresh spinach is immediately packed to keep transportation time from land to table as short as possible.
Westfriesland is a part in the middel of Noord Holland province, between North sea and IJsselmeer (ijssellake). Its a typical temperate climate, wit relative soft winters and limited chance on nightfrost.
