How it works:

  • You can harvest fresh seasonal and organic produce every week from the end of April to the end of 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
  • Harvesting should take around 30-60 minutes depending on the season. 
  • Harvesting times at Pluk! at the Fruittuin:
Thursday from 13:00-17:00 and Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 11:00-17:00.

We offer a weekly single or double share

Single share
A single share contains enough vegetables to prepare 4-5 meals per week. For a hungry person or a couple.

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.

* An example of an abundant July harvest during 2022 - a year in which weather conditions have been favourable. The harvest starts off slowly with lots of salad greens and peaks form the summer through to the autumn. 

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 – 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 contact us and let us know ︎ We recieve a small subsidy for people on low/no incomes.

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.
