  • Description

    Description

    We have a small scale mixed farm in Belgium (West-Flanders). On 4ha we grow vegetables and fruit, raise pigs and milk goats. The big barn and house was build in 1839 and is rebuild for our needs bit by bit. We are young people (Naïki en Jens, born in 1990) and live here with 2 little kids. Jens started farming in 2012. We are looking for a way for natural farming with a low environment impact, but with a good income. The farm has around 80 goats, 10 pigs, 3 working horses, and some 'little animals'. 2000m2 strawberries and a lot if vegtables for local shops and restaurants.
