BoeBaDoe .......... Coo coo ca choo!
And fortunately, farmer Bart does not have to do it all alone because for several years, farmer Floor from Groningen has been living with him on the farm. Their love story resembles that of Farmer seeks wife, but via a farmer dating site. They have been living together on the farm for a number of years and meanwhile have two daughters and a son, Eefje, Vera and Pim!
Together, they have transformed the traditional dairy farm into a fun, educational and sociable hands-on farm. Here, kids can enjoy playing and learning about life on the farm. Bart and Floor are also converting to nature-inclusive farming with Jersey cows. This means that the cows are milked with great consideration for animal welfare and nature. For example, the calves walk with their mothers for the first three months, the cows enjoy herb-rich grassland, they have forage hedges from which they can get their own food. Furthermore, the cows have a free-range barn with a lovely bed of straw! Farmer Bart milks his cows simply and runs an extensive farm, which means the cows are not under pressure and few are sick or drop out. The oldest cow currently being milked is 14 years old!
And it’s not just cows who reside on this farm. Farmer’s Wife Floor is passionate about all animals, especially horses. She is a qualified Riding Instructor and regularly gives lessons in their beautiful outdoor school to the local children as well as guests on the farm.
So this farm offers something for everyone. You can help farmer Bart look after the cows or take care of the small animals and ponies with farmer Floor. Or just play in the playground. We bet you will enjoy this farm in this beautiful part of North Limburg!
What a great choice!
Enjoy the cows!
This is what makes this farm so much fun!
On the outskirts of Beringe along a quiet road, lies this delightful Dairy Farm run by Farmer Bart and his wife Floor. A lovely, peaceful location where you can fully enjoy life on the farm and take advantage of the beautiful nature nearby.
At FarmCamps BoeBaDoe you can choose from one of our eight luxury tents. How about our Safari tent which has its own toilet (you can take a shower in the bathing facilities nearby)? Or maybe you prefer the Ranch tent which comes with its own unique ‘Hay! Hay! Bathroom Trailer’? Or perhaps the luxury Lodge tent or Barntent is your choice because it comes with its own private bathroom? Unlike the 6-person Barntent, the 4-person Barntent at BoeBaDoe does not have a Hay Hay sleeping loft in the tent, but is otherwise not inferior to the 6-person version in terms of comfort and extras.
It’s all luxury… now all you have to do is choose!
At this FarmCamps farm, you are guaranteed to enjoy the peace and quiet. There are only 8 luxury tents, so it will never be crowded. The farm is located in an agricultural area on a quiet road.
The luxury tents are located around an open field. From the tent you have an open view across the meadows where you can watch Farmer Bart’s ‘ladies’ grazing in the fields.
On this location, it is not possible to camp using your own equipment.

But if you do want to discover the local environment in the North Limburg province, home to stunning natural beauty like the De Groote Peel National Park and the river Maas, then you won’t be disappointed. Dotted along the river are pretty little fortified villages or you could visit towns like Venlo, Roermond and Weert which are all within a 20 minute drive. If you need to pick up a few bits and pieces then Panningen is but a few kilometers from the farm.
In English this is called the Iron Man Swimming Pool and it is located in Weert, about 20km from the farm. You don’t need to be an iron man to have a great time though! Here you’ll find a wave pool, water slides, a children’s pool, hot tubs and an outdoor pool to boot! There is also a super outdoor play area for your mini-farmers complete with mini-golf, water skiing and tree climbing too.
Toverland has long been a popular destination for the young and the old. Whether you come to experience roller coasters like Troy, Booster Bike or Dwervelwind, or the sparkling water attractions like Backstroke or Djengu River, one thing is for sure; the enchanting atmosphere in Toverland means everyone will have a magical day.
Just across the border in Venray you will discover this very nice and rather affordable theme park. With both indoor and outdoor facilities, your mini-farmers can run, jump, slide, climb, splash and laugh to their hearts content. There is also a small petting zoo and a corn maze.
De Groote Peel National Park is a heathland formally used to cut peat.

The village of Thorn is one of the most visited places in Limburg and is known as ‘the white village’ because of its white-washed brick houses in the center of town. For more than eight centuries it was the capital of a small principality and there is much to see and do here. It is a very attractive town, perfect for strolling through and enjoying an ice-cream or drink at one of its cafés.
Along the river Maas there are many beautiful and old places to visit – but none are as popular as Arcen. Not only does it boast a beautiful historic center, it also has fairytale-like castle gardens to wander around in together with thermal baths to relax in
