Nursery De Molenkamp
At the edge of the dutch village Brakel we find flower nursery Molenkamp. This nursery is for almost 40 years a family business and is currently run by brothers Gert-Jan and Sander Klop. The company in its present form covers a total industrial area of app. 17,000 m2 greenhouse and is equipped with the latest modern techniques such as WKK energy supply and assimilation lighting.
Gert-Jan: "The company exists since 1973. Our father Gerrit Klop, began in the early 70's with his four brothers growing strawberries and tomatoes. A few years later, they switched to growing Chrysanthemums. Nice to mention is that the brothers as one of the first in the Netherlands used a harvest band with a string system. In 1995, our father entirely took over the company from his brothers and Sander and I also joined in. In one of the greenhouses we combined the growing of chrysanthemums with the growing of exclusive summer flowers."
In 2002 Gert-Jan and Sander took over the company from their father Gerrit. A major company re-construction project was realized. Also in terms of sortment, a change took place: in 2009, a switch was made from growing Anastasia White and Sunny (lint chrysanthemums) to Anastasia Dark Green (also lint). In 2015 we decided to start a combined cultivation of chrysanthemums and celosia’s. From week number 5 through week number 32 we breed celosia’s (species Act Dara, Act Inca, Act Rima, Act Vida, Act Zara en Springgreen) en from week number 33 through week number 4 we breed chrysanthemums (species Anastasia spray in the colors white and sunny).
The sales are divided among the auctions of Aalsmeer, Naaldwijk Plantion and Naaldwijk Bloemistenklok. In addition a part of the production is sold through direct sales and also via Floramondo.
Sander: "The quality of our product is paramount for both our chrysanthemums and celosia’s. We harvest our celosia in a couple of time steps and therefore we are able to deliver flowers with identical combs and stem lenghts.
Thanks to the Quality Flower Group, with a small group of chrysanthemum growers, we can join forces which has great benefits for all of us. Our dedicated relationship manager Chris Biesheuvel represents our common interests.
Our assortment chrysanthemums is available from week number 45 through week number 11
Our assortment celosia's is available from week number 12 through week number 44
