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


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

Jersey bulls are usually slaughtered 2 weeks after birth and used as non-organic dog food because they are too small to fatten conventional calves. At DID-IT, organic Jersey bulls are raised and fed organic milk and hay and a specific herbal mixture in an open barn with plenty of straw. After three months they are fed organic roughage and go out to pasture. No antibiotics are used. For safety reasons they are castrated. After 20 - 24 months they provide very tender and tasty organic meat of high quality and value.

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.

Lucky Bird

Lucky Bird is a poultry farming concept where the chickens and roosters are kept in movable carts, so-called chicken coops on wheels. The chicken cart is moved at least once a week to a fresh patch of grass to keep the soil life in optimal condition. The chickens and roosters are kept in organic fields and fed with organic grass, herbs and feed. The cart is equipped with solar panels. The organic eggs are packed in recyclable cardboard boxes and sold in organic food stores. This is a completely natural cycle from egg to egg.

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.

BIO-VEE - Organic cattle

BIOVEE, Organic cattle was founded by organic farmers for organic farmers and is committed to organic breeding with organic livestock. Organic breeding is the selection and propagation of animals (organic cows, pigs, chickens and goats) in and for organic farming, withrespect for animal welfare and animal integrity. Male animals also deserve a life. Selected organic bulls are used for organic A.I. and as organic studs. A special organic chicken breed is bred, to provide organic eggs and meat.

Northern Lights

Northern Lights is a space where organic experiments are made possible. There is a so-called Mancave where roosters are kept until they mature. A food forest is planned, and  a flower meadow where the roosters and chickens can hide, but also a natural plant wall, an organic vegetable garden and other experiments with 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.

Students of Johannes Fontanus College and sustainability policy


Johannes Fontanus College and sustainability.


On Wednesday, February 22, the students of VWO class 5 of the JFC in Barneveld were guests of DID-IT.

Like last year, the 32 students had worked on sustainability projects in 9 groups of 3-4 students.

At the meeting loft at DID-IT's farm, the students were welcomed and first given an introduction about the history of DID-IT and its activities such as bull calves, hens and roosters, bees and other projects.

Then half of the students were given a tour by Kobe Schoofs, one of the farm's residents who himself advises businesses on sustainability, and was able to show how some DIDIT projects are implemented in practice.

The other half presented their finished projects in groups. Then that half switched for a tour while the other students got to show their sustainability advice again. More....
