The growing seasons on our farms start in December (Netherlands) and July (Portugal). The plants are then put in the greenhouse for the new season. After three months of hanging strings, fixing plants and crop care, we harvest the first tomatoes and peppers.
Since 2001 we have been growing in Portugal (Odemira). A unique location on the Atlantic coast. Here the summer climate is comparable to the Netherlands and therefore moderate. Tomatoes and peppers are grown here in modern well-equipped greenhouses according to Dutch standards. Controlled growing and good climatic conditions enable us to deliver quality all year round.
Frestia Portugal grows under the same conditions as in the Netherlands with reuse of water and fertilisers, organic crop protection and maximum attention to quality assurance and food safety. All this according to North European standards.
