Fruit Growing

On 32 hectares we grow 6 hectares of apples (Elstar) and 26 hectares of pears (Conference, Beurré Alexander Lucas, Doyenné de Comice and Gieser Wildeman). With its river clay, the Betuwe is known for its good soil properties for growing fruit. The availability of water from the Rijn river is a major plus for us

In the winter months the fruit trees are pruned, after which they are again full of beautiful fruit blossom in April. In the summer months we care, fertilize and protect (against pest insects and fungi) our upcoming harvest, after which they are harvested again in September. 

High-quality fruit and good fruit storage ensure that we can supply our fruit to consumers almost year-round.

Flower strips

With the construction of flower strips in the grass paths and insect houses in the trees, it is a good residence for the useful insects and they like to live in the orchard. If the beneficial insects are not eaten by all harmful insects, then we assist with our crop protection machinery to specifically tackle a pest.
