On Monday, 13 September, the Waterman Onions purchasing team was strengthened by the addition of Harmjan Hospers. The 23-year-old from Nagele was born and bred in the agricultural sector. He grew up on his father’s farm, where they grew seed potatoes and onions, carrots, winter wheat and grass seed. That’s where he acquired his enthusiasm for farming. “The harvest is the best time of year when you can finally see the result of a year’s hard work to give your crops the best possible care. Watching the whole plot come out of the ground, that’s the icing on the cake.”
Harmjan became acquainted with the trade side of agriculture during his senior internship at uienhandelonline.com. “What interests me the most is helping growers decide on the best onions for their farm.”
Are you interested in the new season?
Growers can already contact us for onion seeds for the third season via our website, uienzaadonline.nl. Or, if you’d rather have personal contact, buyers Jelmer and Harmjan would be happy to share their advice.
