What makes Top Farms Głubczyce stand out from other large farms in the country?
Top Farms Głubczyce is continuing in the traditions of large scale farming which has been part of the Głubczyce district for more than half a century. We were able to retain the very broad scope of agricultural production. We maintain and continually develop husbandry with particular focus on milk cows, we also have a cattle slaughter house and sell beef. It was for those achievements amongst others that we were awarded 1st place in the 2014 Agroliga contest in the Opole Province.
In plant production we have a well developed production of seeds! Apart from cereals and rape, which constitute nearly 65% of crops, Top Farms Głubczyce produces sugar beets, burclover, fodder grasses, power plants, sweet corn but also vegetables, soya and potatoes. And it is vegetables and potato that make us stand out from amongst the other farms in the region. 15 years ago we were the first to introduce farming technology which allows for the production of top quality potatoes and other root vegetables in the heaviest soils.
The certificates which we attained confirm that with an excellent team of well trained specialists with a passionate take on farming, it is possible to run a large scale farm, with respect for the natural environment, adherence to the code of good agricultural practices (GlobalGap) and to achieve satisfactory results!
