Opening of the asparagus season
On 21 April, the season gets formally underway at asparagus producers Vercammen (Spreet 11, 2500 Lier). The press is expected, asparagus will be prepared and tested, and everyone will go home with a goodie bag. Next it will be turn of the Limburgers: on Sunday 24 April in Kinrooi, at asparagus producer Johan Driessens, to mark 'a peek into life on the farm'. On 30 April, the new crop will be tested at grower Henkens (Kinrooi) during the Asparagus Festival.
