Nursery Helderman buys 25 hectares at Agriport A7

Nursery Helderman, member of Harvest House, is the first grower within Agriport A7 to reach an agreement about the purchase of a lot in this area for the second time to facilitate further growth. The purchase is for over 25 hectares. In 2018 a first phase of 11 ha glass coverings is being contracted, expanding the company’s area for bell pepper cultivation from 23 ha to 34 ha.

Robin Berendse from Yeald, has supervised the entire process, from the stage of ideas and business plan to the financing and final purchase. Ruud Helderman: “together with Yeald we have conducted a thorough study into the matter for the past year and a half, and we have made strategic choices that are in the company’s best interest. Growth and optimisation are key words in this.”

Ideal growth path
Barry and Ruud Helderman are thrilled to once again go into business with Agriport A7. Barry Helderman: ”the advantages of the area are widely known, and to grow it was a prerequisite for us to have at least these points represented. The advantages of ECW (energy supplier): geothermic, energy network, CO2, glass fibre, and various other amenities. This makes it, combined with a second branch at walking distance and a network of excellent entrepreneurs around that make each other stronger, an ideal growth path for us.”

Agriport A7 is proud to have an established grower realising a second project in the same area. Jack Kranenburg: “this demonstrated what we have been trying to establish from the start: an ideal location for sustainable greenhouse farming.”
