We grow three crops on our farm. In our greenhouse, we produce cucumbers year-round, plus we grow blueberries and kiwiberries. The blueberries are covered over with polytunnels for five to six months per year. To reduce consumption of tap water and groundwater on our farm, we collect as much rainwater as we can from our greenhouse and tunnels, and use it to irrigate our crops. We have a 2,100 m³ ring silo to collect the rainwater, and in addition, we collect the drain water from the cucumber production site, scrub it with a UV scrubber and reuse it. Our farm strives to make the very most use of the rainwater that we collect. We only use groundwater when absolutely necessary.
