THE FARM OF ALBERT AND ANGELA
On the outskirts of Amsterdam is a beautiful rural area where our farm has stood since 1861. Albert was born here , as were his father, grandfather and his great-grandfather. Angela, was not born here but have lived here most of her life. Their children were born here and now also work on the farm.
They milk 30 beautiful Dutch cows every day and a flock of sheep graze in the fields. In March, the sheep have lambs and the beautiful wooden stables hold calves all year round. In the yard, Bink and Bommel, our pigs, happily scratch around among the chickens and horses. But behind the wooden fence, otherwise they enjoy our vegetable gardens too much, which is not quite the intention. The cows are outside most of the year and only come to the stable to be milked. In winter, they are comfortable in the barn, where they can lie in the straw.
The farm has been biodynamic for decades and you can see that when you look over the land, there is not only grass growing but also lovely herbs and flowers.
To keep things properly dynamic, you will often see visitors scurrying around our yard. We give farm lessons to schoolchildren from Amsterdam. They really get to work with us so they can experience life on a farm first-hand.
The children from the day-care centre also have their chores on the farm and often play in the haystack.
