In 1956, Dutch horticulturist Cornelius Houweling began a small floral greenhouse and berry farm in Langley, British Columbia. Like many Dutch immigrants, Cornelius worked hard to establish a business with a reputation for quality. This was how he chose to provide for his wife and young family.
From the time he was a small boy pruning and picking his fathers vegetables, he knew what he wanted to do with his life. He wanted to be a farmer, but not a traditional one. Specializing in greenhouse and hydroponic tomatoes, he joined the business in 1976 and began expanding. They moved some of the business to Camarillo where conditions for growing tomatoes were perfect. The facility was erected in 1996 and today, 125 acres under greenhouse glass and the California sun produces delicious varieties of tomatoes in an array of colors, shapes and sizes 52 weeks a year. They are non-GMO certified.
