Innovation

Underground heating for earlier availability!

Our asparagus plants are watered with drip irrigation, but that is not the only hidden factor aiding the plant.
Two further tubes run alongside the roots with flowing warm water. These tubes heat the ground which permits the asparagus spears to grow earlier.

Sustainability

With all these tubes and technology in cultivation one starts wondering: is this sustainable?
We elaborated a way to work as naturally and sustainably as possible.

NH1

Save water!

The water used for heating flows in a closed circuit, so every drop is saved and re-used.

NH3

Protect the environment!

Our asparagus is heated with certified energy in order to preserve the quality of air, water and soil, thus also humans and the environment.

Checking

We follow the guidelines of the Center for Sustainable Leadership of the University Witten/Herdecke and got certified in March 2018.

Ecology

Cover 10-15% of our energy consumption with renewable energy by the installation of a photovoltaic system

Economy

Increase of 15% of our sorting and packing efficiency by the purchase of a new sorting machine

Social
