Ineke, Martin and their growing family began their time at the farm over 40 years ago, when they moved from Holland to Mapleton Township on November 6, 1980. 

In the early 1990s the farm began the transition to organic practices and both Ineke and Martin were active in many different organizations over the years, with many awards for their innovations. 

Their influence spans the world as they invited visitors, interns and many other guests over the years to the farm.

The past few months have been a time of transition for the farm. 

As of May 2022, the de Groot family welcomes the new owner - Korb Whale, his family, and team members who are taking on the leadership and operations of Mapleton’s Organic.

If you are able to attend the gathering, it would be appreciated if you can RSVP at this link (click here) or by emailing degrootfam8548@gmail.com
