Our History

Our History

The “Dimdiņi” agricultural farm was founded in this place in 1926, when, during the 1920s, the newly formed, independent state of Latvia allocated to people land with redemption rights for the establishment of private farms. 
That was how Jānis Lūsis, his wife Anna and their daughter Erna became the owners of a piece of land of 16.16 hectares in the Lizums civil parish of the Gulbene District. They established a farm there and gave it the name “Dimdiņi”, meaning “the loud” or “the resounding ones”. A living house and outhouses were built in the middle of a totally empty, flat field. In the early days, they were engaged in grain cultivation, cattle breeding and fruit growing. Jānis Lūsis was a passionate tree lover, so from the very first day different types of trees were planted there, and they continue to please the Dimdiņi people today. The living house and the outhouse built by the Lūsis family have also survived till nowadays.
 
During the Soviet period, everything was nationalized, but in the beginning of the 1990-ies, when Latvia regained independence, Erna Lūse-Jančevska, the daughter of Jānis and Anna Lūsis, recovered her parent’s property as the sole heir. Her heart's desire and fervour were very patriotic, and she remembered with great satisfaction how successfully her family had managed the farm “Dimdiņi”. Her father had caressed every ear of rye when walking around the rye fields, therefore Erna eagerly wished that the private farm, being regained with so much effort, might be restored and might successfully develop in the free Latvia again.
The current owners of Dimdiņi – the Audzišs family – inherited the farm after taking care of the elderly lady.  
The Dimdiņi farm experienced its second foundation in 1992 as a vegetable growing company, managed by the young and certificated agronomists and gardeners Audzišs. As to the cabbage growing business skills, they have inherited them from Iveta Stalidzāne’s parents Maruta and Jāzeps Stalidzāns, who were growing cabbage during Soviet times in the Līvbērze civil parish of the Jelgava district as an additional source of income. The favourite recipe of stewed “Dimdiņkāposti” was a popular delicacy on the family table already then, and the recipe was passed over to the young ones. 
The family received another heritage from Normand’s mother and father - Irēna and Imants Audzišs, who passed over to their son their professional experience and knowledge of production of the candy “Gotiņa” or “the little cow”, so popular in Latvia, which served in 1998 as the basis for a the idea to buy the “Gotiņa” candy production workshop in Lizums.
Gradually more and more land next to Dimdiņi was purchased, and at present already 200 hectares of land are managed, where head cabbage, Chinese cabbage and cauliflower are grown. From the very first day, the owners of the farm were engaged also in sauerkraut production. They were the pioneers in Latvia of prepacking their product in plastic buckets, having gained popularity and the buyers’ acknowledgement. In 2008 a high-capacity production line was introduced that allows to prepack all kinds of products in comfortable and modern sachets. 
The name of the label “DIMDIŅKĀPOSTI” was first heard “from the mouth of ordinary people”, when a purchaser exclaimed one day: “I see, the “resounding” cabbage has appeared on the stall!”
The year 2012 opened a new chapter in the history of the “Dimdiņi” Ltd., when the next generation of the Audzišs family - Sintija, Rinalds and Oskars Brediks joined the business. They brought a huge reinforcement, advanced ideas and a new way of thinking, which continue to develop the vision of the family business.

“We are grateful for this place, our brand name and the best wishes given to us by Aunt Erna. The patriotic force, national pride and love of work and people were her main values. Aunt Erna and our parents have helped us, being young newcomers, full of enthusiasm, to understand the value of this land and the satisfaction it provides. We would like to express gratitude to our parents, who have been with us from the first days of our new business and who have taught us the skills both in cabbage growing and “Gotiņa” candy production. From them we gain and learn their incredibly great strength and endurance at work!”
