    Description

    Welkom to our family. We, Bianca and Roland, have a farm, a farm shop and a winery with our vineyard. At the farm we grow crops like potato, onions, sucker beet, tulips, and on. At the farm is a shop with lots of products from the farm and other farms in the area.

    We like you to stay at our place, to learn from each other, and we love to show you around at lovely place's like Blokzijl and Giethoorn in the great national park "The Weerribben". We live very close to it!

    Our farm is close to Marknesse and Blokzijl. at here site you can find more info about it.

    Your helping days are Monday till Friday.
    Normal help day: Start at 8, koffie and breakfast at 9 till 9.30 and help till noon.
    After the tasks your free to go and we provide bikes and a scooter to travel in the area.

    We provide all you're meals and you can cook it yourself in the holiday house. If there are more workawayers you will have to share the kitchen. There is an allowance of 25 Euro a person a week for you to buy some food in the supermarket and you can get food from our shop for free. We have veggies and fruits, eggs, potatoes, unions.... All you still might need is bread yogurt meat spices and stuff.

    Some evenings we like to have a nice chat together with a couple of beers or wine, and some evenings we like to take some time for ourselves.
    The most important thing is that we can trust you, and then you will have a great time at our farm!
