Cultivation of cucumbers and mini cucumbers in a greenhouse - especially in Spain - is a special profession and requires a lot of specialized knowledge. Starting a growing company for cucumbers under glass in Spain means by definition pioneering. The founder of the company - Martin Scherpenhuizen - together with the plant manager - Edwin de Craen - knows this better than anyone else. The right climate zones, water quality and local management are critical success factors for the success of production company.

After carefully mapping out different areas in Spain the best location was to be found in Don Benito in Spain. The international team (Dutch and Spanish management) have a mix of knowledge and experience with managing local organizations and years of expertise in growing cucumbers in Dutch greenhouses. This combination ensures that current quality standards at production level are fully implemented and fulfil all standards of our end-customers.

So we can proudly declare that professionals are involved in all the various processes that lead to a fresh and tastefully food save product.

The assortment of FINCA BOYAL in recent years changed due to changing demands of our customers. Four years ago we started out with bell peppers and "in-between" the growing of melons, but now we're already for almost three years successful in growing cucumbers and recently mini cucumbers under glass. Very important advantage of this one-for-all control together with our sales partner Scherpenhuizen in The Netherlands is that Finca Boyal is able to exchange best cucumbers which reflects our ambition in the field of sustainable entrepreneurship.

The craftmanship of growing!

means working with nature and with natural resources sensibly. This takes places in many ways and starts off by selecting a growing area where the best farming principles are present. After all, how spontaneous and natural a crop grows, the less pest and disease control measures are needed. Important factors that reflect this are: water consumption, the possibility of implementation of 'Integrated Pest Management', the total energy consumption from seed to customer and reduction of CO2 by implementing new techniques.
