The Sixpence figure, the hunchback shepherd on the label, represents all the families who are involved on the farm. He was a worker on the farm many years ago and his descendants are still involved in the business.
Opstal is a family business, but when we say “family”, we don’t mean just the owners and management’s family – it is all our people who are with us in this business. And that is why “Sixpence” is such an important projuect and label – it is a tribute to all those familys that are and were part of Opstal.
The “Sixpence Community Fund” was established for the benefit of the workers and their families who stay on the farm.
