The Broeders company, a feed distribution and contracting company in Berkel-Enschot, Netherlands, has several sources of income. In addition to providing services for farmers, his clients also include the potato industry and a brewery.
Already in 1881, the monks moved from Northern France to Berkel-Enschot. They founded the Koningshoeven Trappist Abbey. Since the soil in the heather was too meagre for farming, the Trappist began to brew beer. The La Trappe Brewery was founded. A major source of income, because according to an old tradition, the monks must earn their keep themselves. It is still that way today. Over more than130 years, modern farming developed around Berkel-Enschot, in the Dutch province of North Brabant.
