Tags: Excerpts from the Windmill
KRAGGENBURG – Farmers looking for an alternative crop and innovative ideas may want to check out Brennels, which not only grows stinging nettles but also processes the fibers into a new line of environmentally-friendly clothing material. Brennels recently opened a visitors’ centre to showcase it processes and products. For entrepreneur Bob Crebas and his wife Carla, the nettles endeavour is a jump from Internet technology to the farm. The couple sold its highly successful website www.marktplaats.nl to eBay.
