    Growers Profile

    My Father, Adrien Boeraeve, started up the farm in 1950 with my Mother, Marie-Cecile Derycke. They grew hops and reared pigs and cattle.
    I married Rita Leys in 1985 and we started looking after the farm in 1986. Rita had a fulltime job as a nurse until our first Son Stijn was born. Rita stayed at home and we worked on the farm together and a few years later, our second Son Tomas was born.

    We grow 13 hectares of hops, which is the main crop, along with hop shoots, a few hectares of cereals and vegetables – 25 hectares altogether.

    My Son Tomas, now works on the farm with me.
