The need for organic supply chains is increasing as consumption grows.

DID-IT aims to boost organic supply by kickstarting, supporting and funding projects to grow and produce with diversity for more high-quality organic agricultural products.

Current Projects


Heart for Earth

At the end of 2022, the organic store/web store HART voor AARDE was located in farm de Braamstruik on Voorthuizerweg in Nijkerk. The old corrugated barn adjoining the reception area and offices of DID-IT had been converted into an organic store and web supermarket by Martin and Rolanda van den Heuvel. Martin and Rolanda have been a family since the late 1990s, and their daughter is happy to contribute to the initiative with, among other things, publicity for Heart for Earth.

Bee populations

Poppe Braam and Gerard van de Braak of De Valksche Hof have been working together for many years. Together they placed the first bee colonies on the Harselaar Barneveld industrial area.
At the time, a complete novelty. After the purchase of the office-farm in Voorthuizen, some hives were placed on the premises of DIT-IT in early 2021. Five hives were placed, which could immediately take care of the pollination of the fruit blossoms. They also pollinated the sown buckwheat.

Jersey Bulls

The Jersey is a small stubborn cow that gives extra full and tasty milk with more fat and protein than other dairy cows.Due to the somewhat frail build of these animals, the (bull) calves ofJersey dairy cows have a lower birth weight and little predisposition to put on (a lot of) meat.
makes them not interesting for the meat calf trade. "That's a shame, because we believe that bull calves should absolutely not be a waste product. In order to give milk, a cow must give birth to a calf once a year, and so it is inevitable that bull calves will also be born. Fifty percent of calves born are bull calves. "

The SYMFONIO project supplies organic fonio from Burkina Faso and the Sahel region. The aim of SYMFONIO is to provide farmers with sufficient yields for their own consumption and a surplus for export, through the production of nutritious crops.

The cultivation of fonio combats desertification and erosion and can even make desert soil fertile again.

Alleb'ei' and Lucky Bird

Lucky Bird has been selling organic eggs from hens living in a mobile cart since 2018. Each week they walk on a fresh patch of grass and in addition to each hen, there is also a rooster. The hens and roosters are raised in organic fields and fed organic grass, herbs and feed. Natural food stores now carry eggs and chicken meat from fast-growing breeds, though they are given more time to grow under better conditions. The roosters, continue to live, but are not suitable for meat. DID-IT is going back to an original breed whose rooster is suitable for meat and the hen for eggs. We now have a dual purpose super healthy chicken breed in the moveable carts and are proud of these chickens under the name Alleb'ei'.



In 2007, a group of small organic soybean farmers started BIORGANICA to grow organic products in the state of Parana in Brazil, for local use and export. It is FairTrade IBD-certified to meet social, environmental and economic needs and to connect farmers and producers. The main export crops are soy, cassava and sugar. The farmers and producers are supported with organic and technical advice and with assistance in exporting their products. For the local market, the development of organic consumer products is supported.

Het Wilde Noorden

The Wild North is a space where biological experiments are made possible. A so-called Mancave where roosters are kept until they reach adulthood. A food forest is planned and a flower meadow where roosters and hens can hide. A natural plant wall, an organic vegetable garden and other experiments by young people, because they are the next generation to keep our planet healthy.

About us


Poppe Braam

Born and raised in Friesland, Poppe was already involved in organic farming and food during his student days in Groningen and was the first to start a certified organic chicken farm.

At the same time he set his sights on the world outside and came into contact with international organic companies. After the necessary experience he started DO-ITan international trading company in organic raw materials and consumer products based in Barneveld. The company is now one of the largest organic companies in the Netherlands. After more than 30 years of dedicated leadership of DO-IT, Poppe passed the baton at the end of 2020 to 2 entrepreneurs with a passion for organic agriculture and food.

Poppe cannot sit still, so his work continues with the many challenges and questions that the sector of organic agriculture and food poses. DID-IT B.V. is the basis for the resulting activities. Poppe and his team will be able to continue to contribute to the important transition of a sustainable, organic agriculture and food sector in the Netherlands and other countries. The European Green Deal also poses major challenges for the production and marketing of organic food.
