About us

The idea about asparagus from Kalniena belongs to LLC DALANS, whose owners are Stig Astrom from Gotland in Sweden and Dvaits Spurins from Latvia.

Since 1990s LLC DALANS has been installing and selling tyres and wheel discs in Riga, 60, Krustpils iela.

Dvaits and Stig have always enjoyed asparagus that have been cultivated by Stig’s friends and acquaintances in Gotland for 30 years, therefore in autumn 2014, it was decided together with Dvait’s father-in-law who owns land in Kalniena, to try to plant asparagus in area of about one hectare. It was done in spring 2015. With a perspective in mind to export asparagus to Sweden, where only a small part of totally consumed asparagus can be grown, additional land lot in Kalniena has been bought and plants ordered for the next field.
