Cabbages are farmed mainly in Noord-Holland. This is due to the great farming conditions in this area. After the soil is prepared, the cabbages are planted in May. Subsequently, these grow into beautiful tasty cabbages in four months.


During the months of September, October, and November the cabbages are harvested. This is a labour intensive job, which includes cutting the cabbages on the field. Next, the cabbages are stacked in storage boxes by hand and driven to storage.


Following arrival at the storage facility, the cabbages are stored under the right conditions. During the storage process, quality is monitored closely.


All our Dutch cabbages are Global Gap certified.
