The Van Staaldiunen family left Holland in 1938, just before the outbreak of World War II. American immigration laws forced them to go to Canada for five years before they could enter the country in 1943. Finally settled on a farm in Beaufort County near Terra Ceia, the family began planting tulips. Over the years the farm has diversified, with over 1,200 acres devoted to corn and soybeans and 250 acres devoted to the cultivation of cut flowers.
