    Sorting asparagus

    by ATLC Written May 26, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The asparagus is grown in fields, in long beds and harvested by hand every day. Those that are not grown are left until they are done.
    Then the asparagus is washed and sorted, all by hand.
    The thicker, whiter and straighter they are, the more expensive.

    Asparagus grower

    by ATLC Written May 26, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    After having eaten delicious asparagus in Het Veerhuis in Broekhuizen (hotel/restaurant), we were directed to the grower that delivers to the restaurant.
    The best asparagus was € 6 per kilo. I bought at € 3 per kilo because they were neither quite straight nor very alike in thickness or colour which doesn't bother me.

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The name Grubbenvorst comes from “Grubben” and “searches”. Grubben was the name of the castle which now lies in ruins, Searches was the name of the village.

    To the south of the village there have been finds from the Iron Age and the Bronze Age, Grubbenvorst was also a strategic location for the Romans.
