Ralph’s dad came from western Holland, a country that has been a major greenhouse center for hundreds of years. Since 1989, Ralph has farmed with his brother Rob in the greenhouse started by their dad.
Their operation has expanded numerous times and produces crunchy, dark green cucumbers and tomatoes on the vine, which Ralph loves to eat with burgers and salads. The greenhouse life agrees with him. “I like that I can make my own hours and enjoy camaraderie with my brother.”
Ralph and Rob market their flavourful produce through the RedHat Co-operative, as it allows them more time to focus on production, with the peace of mind that their produce is being brought to the customer in the freshest way possible.
