Pik-n-Pak Produce Ltd was formed in 1986 as a joint venture between several local family-owned greenhouses, with a vision of working together to process and market wholesome, delicious, and just-picked-fresh greenhouse cucumbers, tomatoes and peppers. Pik-n-Pak is independently owned by its three member greenhouses Doefs Greenhouses, TR Greenhouses, and Gull Valley Greenhouses.

Doefs Greenhouses: In 1969, Joe Doef emigrated from Holland, with Horticultural degrees and with dreams of starting up his own greenhouse business. He started out on a borrowed piece of property with a small greenhouse and grew the first crop of tomatoes. In 1976, the big move was made to an acreage west of Lacombe and full-time "greenhousing" begun. Currently the greenhouse is 11 acres and employs almost 50 people. The main crops continue to be Long English cucumbers, mini cucumbers, tomatoes, and bell peppers, with small amounts of eggplant and hot peppers as well.

TR Greenhouses: Ron and Tena Prins have operated TR Greenhouses since 1986 - more than 20 years! They say the highlights of the job include farmer's markets, the active nature of the work, and long coffee breaks with great staff! The first greenhouse was built in 1986 and was 1400m2 in size. At the time only Long English cucumbers were grown. In 2000 a major expansion brought TR to its present size of 10 000m2, then 2002 brought diversification from solely Long English cucumbers to Beefsteak tomatoes. The product line continues to enhance and expand - today more than 15 types of fruits and vegetables are grown. Learn more at http://www.trgreenhouses.com/

Gull Valley Green Houses: Gull Valley Greenhouses is family owned and operated located in Central Alberta just south of Gull Lake. Phil and Carolyn Tiemstra began growing beefsteak tomatoes in 1991 and have expanded the operation several times adding many different varieties of tomatoes along with beans, lettuce, peppers and Herbs.
