Van Haaster Vijfhuizen
VAN HAASTER VIJFHUIZEN!
We grow tulip-, hyacinth-, daffodil bulbs. Besides that we are specialized in scalding of cut hyacinths. Our company is located in the municipality Haarlemmermeer and lies between Haarlem, Hoofddorp and Amsterdam Airport (Schiphol). The former Floriade 2002 is located directly at the opposite side of our company.
Lots of our flowerbulbs are traded by agency’s like CNB, Hobaho and FBT to wholesalers, exporters and bulb growers, however direct sale to buyers is also a possibilty. Since this year we also sell, only during october and november, directly to individuals at home. Our cut hyacinths mainly are sold to retailers. We’ve made some strict agreements about: maturness, length, number of ‘nails’ (little flowers on a peduncle, container, assortment, quantity, delivery time and pricing.
Mostly all of our cut hyacinths go directly to the customer, this is the most efficient way to get the flowers as fresh as possible at the client.Since this spring we have a flowerkiosk in the yard with fresh flowers grown in our own nursery.
Since many years we are an active participant and contributor of the Keukenhof in Lisse. Our range of bulbs and flowers can be admired from march 24th till may 16th 2016.
This year we are again present at the Groot Bijgaarden (Grand Bigard in French), a castle garden near Brussels, Belgium. This exhibition takes place from april 6th till may 6th 2016. A part of our range is exhibited in the castle park.
We are a member of trade unions LTO-Noord and KAVB; these organisations represent our interests as well as possible. Also we would like to recommend the “Projectgroep Promotie Hyacint-Bloemencorso Bollenstreek” (from april 20th till 23) and the “Floratuin” which is located at Julianadorp!
We are MPS-ABC and MPS-GAP certified and became a member of growers association ‘Proven Selections’.
We are a recognized training company. This allows us to offer interns an internship.
