“SIMPLY ENJOY LIFE AND THE GREAT PLEASURES THAT COME WITH IT.”
On a Tuesday morning I talk to Paul about life, about the development of their business, about Grandpa, his father and my father in law both have been active in the auction board. Paul Ravensbergen explains: Our family business has been established in flower bulb cultivation since 1931 and we have been fully specialised in lilies for the last four decades.
Gerben, Jaap, Niels and Paul are just a good team. We strengthen us to each other and we take our responsibilities. When some years ago the crisis started, we examined what we are really good at. This showed that we distinguish ourselves with special types, especially for the florist. We started with a new variety named “Latino”. Also our varieties with “pollen free’ are very populair. We stand behind our product and we do what we are good in… we like to cultivate lilies of the best quality.
At Lilies of Life we stand for Fair Trade. Our philosophy and processes go much further than legislation and rules. We prefer to lead the way when it comes to sustainability, and we do! Our lilies symbolize our passion for life. With their color, intensity and the unexpected, they enhance the special moments in our lives.
Wow family Ravensbergen my compliments this is what we stand for! let’s connect our roots and make the world more beautiful with your positive energie and the beautiful lilies. You can visit the website www.lilies-of-life.nl and get to know more about this special grower team, I am impressed!
