  • Description


    We, Ivonne (48) en Jos (51), like our lives on our small farm Bauernhof von Eden. We like to work with our animals and love to have our Holiday guests. For this purpuse we rent out part of the house as well as a gipsy wagon. Jos is farm advisor and Ivonne has her webshop for creating your own jewelry. We are still working on getting our little paradise more perfect (and could use some help with this).

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Nice warm atmosphere on our small farm. We are originally from Holland, also we could help our visitor with the languages German, Dutch & English. The Region Emsland has lot of interesting sites to visit. Further more we live Close to the Dutch border (20 km), so visiting Holland is also a interesting Option. On our farm, the day to day work with the animals is very nice and our visitors can learn how to take care of different kind of animals. The quit, relaxing location of the farm makes it possible to enjoy life in it purest form.
