  • 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, suckerbeet, tulips, and on. At the farm is a shop with lots of products from the farm and other farms in the area.
    Cor and Riek, (dad and mum) from Roland, are responsible at the vineyard, Bianca at the shop and Roland at the farm.
    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 days days are Monday till Friday.
    Normal help day: Start at 8, koffie and breakfast at 9 till 9.30 and help till noon.

    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!
