About us

The farm is located in Šiauliai District, not far from the road Šiauliai-Riga, near the Hill of Crosses. At the beginning, in 1989, there were only 25 hectares of land obtained under the Farmers Law. Cereals, sugar beets, rape were grown.
Since 1995, the farm has been growing vegetables. The farm expanded. The farm currently covers 750 hectares of land. It is one of the largest vegetable farms in Lithuania. The Dutch, who brought the first three horticultural projects to Lithuania, helped to take the first steps in growing vegetables. Three farms in Vilnius, Alytus and Šiauliai counties were selected from the farmers of that time who were farming all over Lithuania. In the first year, this farm grew only half a hectare of beets, potatoes, onions, carrots and 3 hectares of various cabbage vegetables. After mastering vegetable growing technologies, the farm expanded and the range of grown vegetables changed. Today, vegetables are grown on the area of 300 ha. The remaining land is leased to the surrounding grain growers in order to maintain the natural fertility of the soil and to ensure crop rotation. Only two crops – carrots and onions – remained from the abundant range of vegetables grown.
Currently, the farm is fully equipped with all the necessary tillage, crop care and vegetable harvesting equipment. Up to 18,000 tons of production, up to 13,000 tons of carrots and up to 5,000 tons of onions are grown on the farm. We begin to dig early carrots in late July, onions in early August. All crops for storage are harvested between September and October.
All grown products are stored in suitable warehouses. Onions are stored in modern storage dryers, where they are dried and can be stored until spring. Carrots stored in containers, climate-controlled refrigerated storages also last until April-May. Sales start at the end of July and end in April-May. The farm has all the most modern equipment needed for the initial preparation of products. Such as the onion cleaning line with a capacity of 40 t per day, various devices are adapted for packing onions from 0.5 to 25 kg. There is a modern carrot washing and polishing line, weighing and packing equipment for packing carrots in polyethylene and mesh bags from 1 to 10 kg.
The farm also has a processing workshop where carrots and onions are peeled all year round. The farm can peel up to 8 tons of carrots and up to 6 tons of onions per day. The farm's products are sold to Lithuanian, Latvian and Estonian traders.
