Peter van der Avoird has been cultivating tray plants since 2002. Later, the range was extended with starting material for blackberries and raspberries and the company began growing plants in a greenhouse. This was to guarantee the quality of the raspberries and misted tips. In 2011, the company eventually grew on 2.4 hectares of greenhouses, 8.5 hectares of container field and 5 hectares of open ground. At the new location, in the Brabant municipality of Alphen Chaam, the company will be growing on 15 hectares.
