Biesheuvel Garlic is a family business in Hollands Kroon. We specialize in the production, storage and processing of fresh Garlic. Our company is Global Cap and HACCP certified. Which means that we are environmentally conscious.  The benefits of fresh garlic is that it has a fresher and softer flavor than dried garlic.  Through the mild flavor, the garlic gives little or no smell of the breath.  Another great advantage is that these bulbs can be used totally, both the white bulb and the green stalk are useable.  Currently we are working on developing Garlic pesto and Garlic mayonnaise.  We look forward to leading you and your group around our company.

Living from wind energyleven van de wind
If you talk about Dutch culture, I can tell you that the Dutch always look at their neighbours and say: ‘what do they pay everything from?’. At the de Graaf family, they pay things from the wind. They run a traditional agricultural company with potatoes, grain and sugar beets. But next to producers of food, they are producers of energy. They own a 0,9 megawatt wind mill which produces energy for the daily need of energy of almost 600 families.How does the mill function? Why does a Dutch farmer choose to be energy producer? During a guided tour through the company you will experience how beautiful, modern and at the same time traditional the agricultural entrepreneurship is since decades.
