Cultivating vegetables has a more than 100 years' tradition in Dithmarschen. The original Kuestengemuese vegetables are cultivated only here, in the largest continuous cole crops cultivation area in Europe. For the good, fertile marshes as well as the fresh maritime climate keeping away pests provide optimal conditions for crisp, healthy vegetables.



Our vegetables are produced by selected farmers only - exclusively, and with many of them we have been collaborating since many years. We support them when planning cultivation, controlling growth and quality, harvesting and processing - up to marketing the products. For our retail partners, that has many advantages - as, for instance, maintaining consistent high quality and sufficient delivery capacities.


Carrots, snack carrots, white cabbage, red cabbage, savoy cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, pointed cabbage, rutabaga, celery, squashes, leek, Beets or potatoes from Dithmarschen - only products grown by the sea may bear the seal "Küstengemüse".

We treat resources responsibly.


We ensure reliable and cooperative partnerships.

We encourage individual responsibility and team spirit.

We deal fairly with all partners along the value chain.


Of course we will actively contribute to any results in these fields and, in cooperation with partners, continuously develop solutions for the successful production and marketing of fresh fruit and vegetables.

We shall be glad to have you with us on this journey!


Goals and achievements of Küsten Gemüse GmbH
Economy, Ecology & Social Affairs



At our site, 15% of the electricity required is currently generated in-house, we plan to expand that by 2025. Until end of 2022, any additional electricity will be green electricity.

By 2023, we plan to increase the share of flowering areas of the Gemüsering Stuttgart from 1 hectare to 5 hectares.


We developed our Enterprise Resource Planning System to improve coordination within the company group and to meet all requirements of modern enterprise resource planning systems.

By 2023, Küsten Gemüse GmbH plans to use 100% recyclable packaging materials for products packaged by us.


Social Affairs

An employee suggestion system has been successfully established.

From 2021 to 2023, we plan to accompany and support regional school projects in the field of sustainability.


Quality is our key feature and therefore of top priority. That goes for consumers also: more and more often they ask by whom, how and when their food was produced. We therefore guarantee retraceability of our vegetables from soil to shop - according to national as well as international quality standards.


Consumers want absolutely safe vegetables.
We make sure of that by adhering to national as well as international quality standards.
