M.M. Duin - Bearflowers is a real family-run business. Since 1928 our grandfather has started on the same place where we still grow our flowers nowadays! His sons Mart and Peter took it over from him, and learned us a lot about growing flowerbulbs. Currently Marius and Corina run the family business, brother and sister Duin. Peter, our father, raised us with a great feeling for flowerbulbs and passed over his passion for flowers to us. And with that same passion we still work between our flowers every day! And you’ll notice that, our flowers will that you that when you put them into a vase!
Marius Duin: As a child I already knew that I would become a flowerbulb grower. In the footsteps of my great grandfather, grandfather and my father. With a wheelbarrow full of traditional skills and craft, supplemented with new knowledge and insights, to get the finesse, every day!
Corina Duin: Born and raised within the flowers (and named after a Lily), I think it’s in my DNA. What’s better than being between the flowers every day! I believe that the combination of daily trade, marketing and just standing on your wellies in the mud, is the best there is!
Since 2017 we are delighted with the entry of Chris Riteco to ‘the Bearteam’. Coming from the ICT/marketing world, combined with a great passion for everything that grows and blooms, we believe he’s the perfect addition to our team!
Together with our great team, we’ll do the best we can, to grow the most beautiful flowers, everyday! And beside that, a ‘bearflower’ isn’t just a flower, but it’s a flower with a story. Traditional grown, in a artisan way, for the best result! No mass-production, but with great passion for our craft!
