Abstract:
Van Sataaldiunen was nine years old when his family left Holland in 1939, just before the outbreak of World War II. Unable to come immediately to the United States, they lived in Canada first before coming to Beaufort County. Beaufort and Hyde Counties have sizeable Dutch colonies. Van Staalduinen farms 600 acres in Beaufort County, with about a third of it devoted to tulip raising. Other flowers include daffodils, peonies, irises, and hyacinths. Most of his flowers are sold in North Carolina and neighboring states. It is an uncertain business, subject to the whims of nature, blight, and tax laws. His tulip farm is the last of its kind in area which once supported thirty such farms.
