Innovative farm Baron

  • Since last summer, the new innovative mushroom farm of Bertus Baron, built by Limbraco, is operational. It is a truly unique farm, and you can read a full size story in the forthcoming edition of Mushroom Business.

    The punnets from the growing houses are sorted on this conveyor system.
    Inside the coldstore the punnets can be stored automatically, based on grade, origin and punnet size.

    The growing houses where harvesting takes place are very spacious.

    The filing takes place with a normal filling machine.
    The nets are pulled from one side of the farm to the other.
    Here the nets, after 2 weeks of preparation and pinning, are moved from the preparation growing houses to the houses where the actual harvesting is done in a one layer system.
    The preparation-growing takes place in these houses with 10 rows of shelves, 4 high.
