Story

Ter Marsch & Co has a history of more than 125 years, the traces and vision of the past are still noticeable. Ter Marsch & Co is known from the award-winning burgers and fries, but did you know that our origin dates back to 1890?

The name Ter Marsch & Co originates from 1890; At the time, the “Factory of Verduurzaamde Vleeschwaren” was housed in 1890 at Witte de Withstraat 70. Right, the building where the company is still located today! A number of external features have been preserved within the building.

The burgers from Ter Marsch & Co have been in the spotlight since they opened in 2014. After winning many different national and international titles over the years, Ter Marsch & Co has now become an iconic boutique burger restaurant.

Our guests have a high appreciation for our products, along with the great sense of informal hospitality and the lively yet professional atmosphere. The origins of Ter Marsch & Co goes back to the 19th century when it was a butcher's shop, where the aristocracy needed the very best quality meat.

At one point, Ter Marsch & Co even became purveyor to the royal household of King William III. After which the nobility and merchants took their foreign trading partners to the shop to impress them. During that period, Ter Marsch & Co expanded its function from a place where simple foods were bought to an establishment where the local population met and came to have great food & drinks.


Today, we feel an absolute responsibility to keep the butcher family's message and ideas alive by holding on to their original vision with a modern twist. And just like the Ter Marsch family, we only serve the best products in a lively and pleasant atmosphere.

Quality Meat

We select our cattle from the Limousin and Blonde d'Aquitaine breed. Our animals are treated with respect and we take REALLY good care of them. The calves are raised by the mother cow and in our spacious open stables, small groups of cattle are held together so that there is always good mutual equality among them. In this way the cattle feels the most pleasant and the cows are at ease. During summertime the cows and their young stock walk in the meadows. This is a beautiful view, young calves suckling from their mother, and cows grazing in the meadows, pure nature!

Farm House

On twenty farms, the beef cattle is raised for meat we use. These farmers keep their cows in spacious animal-friendly stables, provided with a thick pack of straw. The cowse that are ready for slaughter are taken by livestock transporters to a nearby small-scale slaughterhouse. The experienced employees who take care of the transport do this with patience and dedication. When the cows come from the meadows, they are cared for and fed extra while in the stable for a number of months, we call this the manure phase. In this phase everything is done in order to give the cow the best possible care. The straw stables are spacious and open so that the animals can move and lie down with maximum comfort. The farmer's daily supervision ensures that the animals can grow in harmony in their animal-friendly stables.

 

Breeding Farm

The breeding of beef cattle, also called suckler cow farming, is the most natural livestock farming in the Netherlands. When the young cows are between two and three years old, they have their first calf. This is always an exciting time. The calves then suckle from the mother, “the suckler cow”, for a period between the 5 to 8 months. During summer they do this in the meadows which gives beautiful views. Due to the excessive Livestock farming, often in nature reserves, the suckler cows are important for biodiversity. Calves and cows that are no longer needed for breeding then go to specialized fattening companies.

Butchery

In our modern small-scale butchery, two things are extremely important. Respect for the animal being slaughtered and hygiene during the slaughter process. The cows that are slaughtered all come from the area, this allows us to plan the supply in such a way that the cattle does have to wait unnecessarily long or become stressed. The cows are transported with small livestock trucks by regular drivers who have years of experience in the proper handling of cattle. During the unloading of the cattle, a veterinarian from the NVWA is always present to supervise the animal welfare.

 

THE FARMER AND HIS POTATO

It starts with a Dutch farmer who grows potatoes from generation to generation. Every day, the potatoes are transported directly from the farmer in large bags to our shop to be cut on site into fresh fries!

Our fries potatoes are large potatoes of the best quality from the Agria variety. The Agria variety has been specially developed for making fresh fries. The Agria variety produces beautiful golden-yellow fries, crispy on the outside and with a nice soft potato taste on the inside. In consultation with our farmer, we choose the right cultivation measures, which results in a fantastic product.

THE BEST QUALITY FOR OUR GUESTS

In everything we do at Ter Marsch & Co the quality comes first. This also applies to our fresh fries, which does not end with the harvest of our potatoes. We also check the temperature and measure the starch content when storing the potatoes. Accordingly we store the potatoes in crates, which prevents them from damages so that we can make the tastiest fries of the Netherlands!

 

FRESH CUT FRIES!

In our shops and restaurants, the potatoes are cut by hand on a daily basis into fresh fries. Then the potatoes are pre-fried so that the potato is pre-cooked and accordingly we allow them to cool down. When serving, our final step is to bake them to perfection! We do this in 100% vegetable oil, which produces beautiful golden-yellow fries with a thin skin, crispy on the outside and with a nice soft potato taste on the inside. We salt the fries with Celtic sea salt, which is a mineral-rich sea salt that has been extracted in a traditional way with love and respect for nature. After baking, the fries are served with our homemade sauce to your choice in a cone (puntzak) or a luxurious packing for the signatures fries. Definitely you need to try them all.
