Since 1978, the farm “De Voorwaarts” is in possession of the family Doppenberg. They had a farm in Julianadorp before this. The company had been an agriculture company with as most important vegetation seed potatoes and after Aart Doppenberg took over the company of his father, he started also with breeding of potatoes. In the beginning he started each year with about 300 new varieties out of seed, but at this moment this has been grown to about 2500 new varieties out of seed.
