How it started

Wil established Fruittuin Van West because he was keen to start a sustainable farm near his beloved Amsterdam.

However, acquiring land is often challenging in an inaccessible and competitive land market. With great determination, Wil applied for support at multiple city councils. Four out of five councils were willing to support Wil’s endeavours.

“Our dream: a company with a great diversity of industries that are all interrelated, close to the consumer whom we wanted to amaze with all the life on our farm. We wanted to create a place where the city and the countryside really come together!”
