In 1996 I started my organic farming study and at the same time we started growing our crops according to organic principles. The main reason why I was attracted to this form of agriculture was the broader, more holistic viewpoint as well as the interconnection with nature. Every year, plot by plot, we switched to organic and in 2000 the whole business was officially organic. Through many difficult years the three of us got to grips with organic farming. It was a true team effort and a success due to our Dad’s experience combined with Jan’s technical expertise and my theoretical and commercial knowledge. Today, using a broad crop rotation system, we grow vegetables that match with the soil including, green celery, zucchini (green and yellow), red and white cabbage, parsnip, leek and grass / clover to help enhance the soil.
After all these years we can confirm what every organic farmer says’ “if you are good for the soil, the soil will be good for you”.
