How it works

  • You can harvest fresh seasonal and organic produce every week from May - November (subject to weather conditions)
  • Harvesters pay one annual fee to harvest fo the entire season
  • Each week we share with you what can be harvested from the fields and instructions for harvesting
  • You can become a harvester at 1 of our 2 locations. We have one farm situated in the Fruttuin Van West and one farm situated at the Boterbloem in the Luktemeerpolder (15mins cycle from the Fruittuin Van West)
  • Harvesting should take around 30-60 minutes depending on the season and location. Harvesting can take longer at the Fruittuin as the fields are spread out whereas the Boterbloem fields are in one place. Sometimes we will harvest items for you.
  • Harvesting times at Pluk! at the Fruittuin:
Thursday and Friday from 13:00-17:00 and Saturday from 11:00-17:00.
  • Harvesting times at Pluk! at the Boterbloem: 
Wednesday and Thursday from 13:00-20:00 and Friday and Saturday from 11:00-18:00.

We offer a weekly single or double share

Single share
A single share contains enough vegetables to prepare 4-5 meals per week.

Double share
A double share is a single share x2 and contains enough vegetables to prepare 4-5 meals per week for a hungry couple or family.

Income based pricing

An income based payment scheme means consumers can choose the amount they want to pay to reflect their own economic status. This means those with higher incomes help those with lower incomes to have access to the project whilst ensuring the farmers receive a fair income.

The income based pricing system asks you to consider your own economic situation and the wage you earn yourself per hour when choosing a share price. We have provided an indication in the table below of how the total price of a share affects our salary payments.

We expect the majority of harvesters to choose a share price of at least 16€/hr (680€) – and ideally above – as this is the minimum amount needed for the farmers to receive a minimum wage. At the same time, we want our harvest to be accessible to as many people as possible - If you cannot afford the minimum share price we ask you to let us know what you can afford and we will do our best to accommodate you.

Please also take into consideration that the hourly rate we are showing in the table below is a BRUTO amount , from which we have to pay our pensions, social security, holidays, insurances and taxes. In future years we hope to earn more so we can build up pensions and cover our insurance and other costs.
